      My testimonial using Gaviscon
      Advance: While I was pregnant
      I suffered badly with acid reflux
      and whenever I did I reached
      for my Gaviscon Advance for
      immediate relief. It soothed
      my throat and left me feeling
      happy again. It is a product
      I would recommend to any
      mum suffering from reflux
      during pregnancy.

      How Gaviscon Advance works

      divider

      Gaviscon Advance creates a protective barrier to stop acid from refluxing up the oesophagus (food pipe). What’s more, we’ve made sure Gaviscon Advance has “mucoadhesion” properties - this means it coats the oesophagus, providing long-lasting protection.

      We know how disruptive heartburn and acid reflux can be, which is why Advance is designed for long-lasting relief - so that you can get on with enjoying everyday life.

      Compared to Gaviscon Original, Gaviscon Advance’s extra strength formulation has twice the concentration of sodium alginate - forming a strong and resilient 'raft' in the process. 

      The liquid formulation does not contain sugar or gluten and can be taken during pregnancy or breast-feeding. 

      What’s more, Advance has the lowest sodium content of any product in the Gaviscon range, making it our recommended solution for pregnant and breast-feeding mothers.

      A sodium alginate solution

      Sodium alginate is extracted from the cell walls of seaweed. It helps the stomach block rising acid, the root cause of the discomfort heartburn and indigestion sufferers know so well.

      FAQ 3: Why, as a pregnant mother, am I suffering from heartburn and indigestion?
      It’s very common. In fact, the vast majority of mothers get these symptoms at one stage or another. Your growing bump, alongside the hormonal changes happening in your body, make it a common occurrence. Read more on our pregnancy page.
