What is Gaviscon Original

Gaviscon is designed to deal with heart burn and indigestion. It's really works by forming a Shielding layer of gel that floats like a raft on the top of your stomach content.

How does Gaviscon work? 

Heartburn and acid reflux are painful conditions that affect the stomach and food pipe. They occur when stomach acid flows back up up the food pipe, causing pain and a burning sensation.

Gaviscon is classified as a reflux suppressant. It works by forming a protective gel layer that floats on top of the stomach contents to prevent acid from returning from the stomach back into the food pipe. The fluid also helps to neutralise stomach acid.
