How Does Gaviscon Double Action Liquid Work
Gaviscon's active ingredients contain sodium alginate, sodium bicarbonate and calcium carbonate.
Gaviscon Double Action Liquid Peppermint helps to neutralise the excess stomach acid while forming a barrier over the stomach contents that prevents the acid escaping up into the chest and food-pipe, relieving the painful burning sensation.
