The Science

How does Gaviscon work?

Our main ingredient, sodium alginate, is derived from natural seaweed sustainably harvested along the shores of Norway. It creates a protective barrier or raft over the irritating stomach content (which is mostly acid, but also pepsin and bile). The antacid component in the formula—calcium carbonate and sodium bicarbonate—also works to counteract acidity. Gaviscon provides fast relief and lasts up to 4 hours*

*Effect on individuals may vary

Creates a raft
A protective “raft” stops irritating stomach acid from rising upwards.
Neutralises acidity
Antacids counteract acidity for dual relief.
Long-lasting relief
Enjoy peace of mind with Gaviscon in your life.

A sodium alginate solution


Sodium alginate is extracted from the cell walls of seaweed. It helps the stomach block rising acid, the root cause of the discomfort, heartburn, and indigestion sufferers know so well.
