Additional Info
Gaviscon Peppermint Flavour Handy Pack – 16 Chewable Tablets Maximum order of one pack per transaction Helps to provide relief from heartburn and indigestion. Works by forming a protective layer over the stomach contents to prevent acid retracting into the food pipe. Handy pack for on the go heartburn relief. What is heartburn? The esophagus is a tube that connects the mouth to the stomach. It is made of muscles that work to push food toward the stomach. Once in the stomach, food is prevented from refluxing (moving back into the esophagus), by a special area of circular muscle located at the junction of the esophagus and stomach, called the lower esophageal sphincter (LES). A pressure difference across the diaphragm, the flat muscle that separates the chest from the abdomen, keeps stomach contents in the stomach. The stomach combines food, acids, and enzymes together to begin the digestion process. There are special protective cells that line the stomach to prevent the acid from causing inflammation. The esophagus does not have this same protection, and if stomach acid and digestive juices reflux back into the esophagus, they can cause inflammation and damage to its unprotected lining. This results in uncomfortable symptoms associated with heartburn. Product ingredients Each tablet contains: Sodium alginate 250mg Calcium carbonate 80mg Sodium hydrogen carbonate 133.5mg Contains sodium and calcium. Please consult your doctor before using this product if you have been advised to follow a diet restricted in either of these salts.
