How Gaviscon Advance works
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.
