Gaviscon Infant mixes with and stabilises the stomach contents so preventing reflux and regurgitation. 

Gaviscon Infant helps prevents reflux, where the stomach contents seep back up the oesophagus (food pipe). It contains two ingredients derived from seaweed called alginates. It works by thickening the baby’s stomach contents so that the milk is more difficult to regurgitate.

Treatment with Gaviscon Infant helps to significantly reduce how often a baby brings up milk and also makes the reflux less severe. The number of times a baby is sick can be reduced by nearly two thirds by using Gaviscon Infant.

Each dose of powder contains:
Sodium Alginate 225mg
Magnesium Alginate 87.5mg
Also contains Mannitol E421
Gaviscon Infant is Sugar Free.
