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.
When you want relief from heartburn, Gaviscon Original can help. The discomfort and pain from heartburn come from excess stomach acid coming back up into your oesophagus (food pipe). The sodium alginate in Gaviscon acts as a ‘raft’ that forms over the contents of your stomach to help relieve reflux. Gaviscon Original soothes and cools the oesophagus, effectively relieving the classic – and often painful symptoms of heartburn and indigestion (a burning pain felt in your chest), so you can feel better.
Best of all? Gaviscon Liquid starts to work from 4 minutes* and lasts up to 4 hours!**
