Gaviscon Double Action with, sodium alginate, sodium bicarbonate and calcium carbonate, works in two ways to effectively tackle the symptoms of both heartburn and indigestion.
Gaviscon soothes irritation in the oesophagus (food pipe) on its way down to the stomach. But once it has arrived in the stomach the action really begins!
Gaviscon works by forming a protective layer on top of the stomach contents. This protective layer keeps all the stomach contents in the stomach where they belong, not letting them seep back up into the oesophagus where they hurt.
