Gaviscon Liquid Double Action Peppermint provides relief from the symptoms associated with heartburn and the discomfort of acid indigestion.
It works in two ways by neutralising excess stomach acid to relieve pain and discomfort and forming a protective barrier over the stomach contents to soothe the burning pain in the chest.
