Doctor-Recommended Antacid

For many people, Gaviscon is the go-to choice for the relief of heartburn and acid indigestion. Because of its unique ability to create a barrier against stomach acid, Gaviscon can prevent acid from travelling up the esophagus. There is no doubt that heartburn is uncomfortable and even painful. Now you can get the relief you deserve at Walmart Canada!

What is Heartburn?

The term "heartburn" makes sense in a general way, as you feel pain in your chest area when it arrives. But the reality of the condition starts in your stomach and ends in your esophagus, having nothing to do with your heart. When the bottom of your esophagus stops functioning properly, it relaxes and allows stomach acid to splash back upward into your esophagus. The acidic substance then irritates and damages cells in the esophagus lining, causing the pain and burning of heartburn. 

There are definitely things that can contribute to heartburn, like food and drinks that you should avoid if you can help it. Foods that are high-fat, spicy, and acidic can make the condition worse.

Reflux and Acid

Acid indigestion is a more accurate term for what is happening in your digestive system than heartburn. But there is a term that describes the problem even better, which is acid reflux. It describes exactly what is happening when your lower esophageal opening fails to clamp down and keep your stomach contents where they belong. Talk about uncomfortable!

A good product like Gaviscon works to provide a foaming barrier that helps keep acid in your stomach instead of your throat. Best of all, it provides fast relief to help you get on with your day.

Symptoms of Acid Reflux

The most obvious sign of acid indigestion is the sensation of having stomach acid come up the back of your throat. If you have ever found yourself swallowing repeatedly to try and force the burning sensation down, you know you have experienced acid reflux. There are other signs, however, including bloating, vomiting, hiccups and nausea.

It is important to pay attention to how often you experience acid indigestion. Although antacids are a powerful tool to treat your symptoms, repeated heartburn--occurring more than twice a week--may indicate a medical condition known as GERD, known as gastroesophageal reflux disease.
