Heartburn & Indigestion
Gastr-oesophageal reflux disease (GERD) occurs when food, liquid and stomach acid leak back from the stomach into the oesophagus (the tube from the mouth to the stomach). It can damage the oesophagus and cause heartburn (a burning pain in the chest, under the breastbone). GERD is common during pregnancy, or if you are overweight or smoke. Consult your pharmacist or doctor to determine the best reflux and heartburn relief solution for your needs.
