Gaviscon – What Does It Do?
Gaviscon peppermint liquid relief is designed to help people suffering from heartburn and indigestion. It is very effective and therefore quite popular among those who are affected by this condition. The Gaviscon solution tastes like mint and also comes as tablets. The smell of mint lingers on for a long time, i.e. 4-6 hours after you take it. Hence, many people use it for double purpose – as an antacid and as Gaviscon mouthwash.
The best thing about this medication is that it is safe for use by pregnant women – which is such a boon. Most pregnant women have a tough time finding the right type antacid for their heartburn which becomes terrible as the due date approaches. Also, the side effect that the Gaviscon is not bad either.
The downside of this product is that it tastes horrible; however, most people chose to ignore that particular aspect because it is so immensely effective in doing its job. It does cut heartburn almost instant, it is safe during pregnancy and it also double as Gaviscon mouthwash. With this product, whichever way you look at it, this product is a winner.
Even so, if you are using it for heartburn, indigestion or just a mouthwash remember to run it by your doctor and ask him how safe it is for you to use this product. The mint flavor of the product – which in fact was added to make it more palatable – is the icing on the cake and the reason most people continue to use it over long periods of time.
