Phillips Milk of Magnesia Liquid has been formulated to relieve indigestion, excess acid and wind, heartburn and stomach discomfort. It can also be used as a laxative to relieve constipation
Phillips Milk of Magnesia Liquid contains the active ingredient magnesium hydroxide, which acts as an antacid by neutralising excess acid in the stomach. When taken orally it can help alleviate constipation and also relieve indigestion, heartburn and flatulence. Magnesium hydroxide draws fluid into the intestine and to retain those already present, serving to distend the bowel. It then stimulates the nerves within the colon wall, which results in the evacuation of colonic contents.
Phillips Milk of Magnesia Liquid has a traditional chalky-mint flavour and is often considered to be one of the more gentler laxatives, as opposed to stimulant laxatives like Dulcolax..
