Article about Heartburn
Heartburn is a common condition and the symptoms can really impact quality of life. This article is your guide to the most common causes, signs, relief and prevention of heartburn.
Gaviscon Dual Action works in two different ways to effectively relieve the symptoms of heartburn and indigestion:
The antacid – the antacid in Gaviscon Dual Action neutralises excess stomach acid to relieve the pain and discomfort of indigestion.
The raft – the sodium alginate in Gaviscon Dual Action forms a thick layer (think of it like a ‘raft’) on top of your stomach contents. The ‘raft’ then acts as a physical barrier that helps keep your stomach contents where they belong – in your stomach – and not in your food pipe where they can cause discomfort and burning pain.
