Gaviscon Original Peppermint Flavour Liquid brings fast, soothing and long-lasting relief from heartburn and indigestion which lasts up to twice as long as antacids.
It works by forming a protective layer that floats on top of the stomach contents. This layer prevents reflux and keeps the stomach contents away from the lining of the food pipe to relieve the symptoms of heartburn and indigestion.
