Gaviscon Liquid Peppermint provides quick, long-lasting and comforting respite from acid reflux, a process that is a result of indigestion that forces the stomach acid and contents into the oesophagus producing pain and intense discomfort. The medicine acts to form a shielding layer on the stomach contents preventing the acid and the stomach contents from escaping into the food pipe where it produces a burning sensation. The liquid has a pleasant peppermint flavour
