Heartburn is a burning discomfort in the mid-chest due to stomach acid irritating the sensitive lining of the esophagus.
The following are common heartburn symptoms:
Heartburn occurs when stomach acid flows backwards through the lower esophageal sphincter (LES) and into the esophagus, usually due to the LES not working properly. A number of lifestyle and dietary factors can contribute to this condition. Visit our Heartburn Triggers page to learn more.
All our products are Double Action and contain both calcium carbonate and magnesium hydroxide, two acid-neutralizing ingredients that contain calcium and magnesium, essential minerals your body needs.
If your heartburn is persistent and unresponsive to medication, it could be the result of a more serious condition known as gastroesophageal reflux disease, or GERD. Without the proper medical attention, GERD can lead to asthma, chronic cough, pneumonia and ulcers of the esophagus (esophagitis). If your heartburn is severe or persistent, consult your healthcare professional for advice and treatment.
