OverviewWhen chewed, Gaviscon tablets create a foam barrier or "raft" which floats on the stomach acid. This raft foam barrier helps reduce the number of reflux episodes and provides longer lasting action against "heartburn" than ordinary antacid products. If reflux occurs, this raft foam barrier is the first to contact the esophageal mucosa, and thus provides protection against the acid-pepsin gastric contents. In fact, Gaviscon helps keep acid down in the stomach, where it belongs. Gaviscon Tablets are Lactose Free & Gluten Free.
Gaviscon is for Day and Night-time relief of Heartburn, GERD (Gstro-Esophageal Reflux Disease).
