Gaviscon Original has a soothing effect, lasting for up to four hours. And because it doesn't enter the bloodstream it is suitable to use during pregnancy.
Gaviscon Original contains sodium alginate, which is derived from seaweed, and is classed as an 'alginate' which means that it forms a 'raft' in the stomach which helps prevents acid coming back up into the oesophagus (food pipe). As such it is effective at treating the classic symptoms of heartburn (a burning pain in the chest and mild acid regurgitation).
It can be used to treat gastric reflux (a condition in which the acid stomach contents flow upwards into the foodpipe) and flatulence caused by gastric reflux.
Suitable for adults and Children from 6 years and over.
You must be at least 16 years old to purchase this product.
