The Gaviscon range of products are all designed to provide relief from pain and discomfort that is associated with heartburn and acid indigiestion. All Gaviscon products contain three active ingredients, sodium alginate, sodium bicarbonate and calcium carbonate, all working together to help relieve symptoms of gastro-oesophageal reflux. Gastro-oesophageal reflux is when stomach acid flows back into the food pipe, which can become uncomfortable.
Heartburn and Indigestion can occur in various ways due to pressure on the stomach, from pregnancy, overindulgence of food, tight clothes or even hiatus hernia. Gaviscon helps to relive symptoms by forming a 'raft' over the contents of the stomach, which prevents any acid escaping back into the foodpipe. Gaviscon products provide relief from symptoms for up to 3 or 4 hours. Manor Pharmacy provide a range of Gaviscon products that are designed to provide fast relief from heartburn and indigestion, from Handy Pack tablets, Original Liquid, Double Action Liquid, Flavoured tablets and cool tablets, all at great low prices, with free delivery.
