Gaviscon Aniseed Original Liquid has been specifically formulated for the treatment of gastro-oesophageal reflux. These symptoms include acid regurgitation, heartburn and indigestion which may occur following meals or during pregnancy, and in those who display symptoms of oesophagitis. Gaviscon Aniseed Original Liquid suspension contains two active ingredients, sodium alginate and potassium bicarbonate, which belong to a group of medicines called reflux suppressants. They work together to form a protective 'raft' on top of the stomach contents to prevent stomach acid from escaping into the oesophagus (food pipe) which causes pain and discomfort.
