Using Gaviscon advance liquid peppermint, you can actually feel relief from heartburn and indigestion.
A reflux suppressant, Gaviscon advance peppermint flavor oral suspension, forms a protective layer on top of stomach lining. As a result this product prevents reflux and keeps the contents of the stomach from reaching the lining of the food pipe, relieving symptoms of heartburn and acid reflux.
The medication may also assist with the relief of symptoms associated with conditions such as hiatus hernia, reflux oesophagitis, hoarseness, sore throats and coughs caused by reflux. Also, this medication can be used to control heartburn symptoms that are caused by taking, or withdrawing from, medication to reduce stomach acid, such as Proton Pump Inhibitors (PPIs) or H2 Antagonists.
