Buy Maalox Plus Antacid Relief Mint Taste Suspension

Maalox Plus Antacid Mint Taste Suspension is designed to help a range of digestion problems including:

 

  • Heartburn 
  • Trapped wind
  • Bloating 
  • Indigestion 
  • Heartburn 

 

This product is easy to consume with its liquid formula and comes with a refreshing mint flavour.

 

How Maalox Plus Antacid Relief Mint Taste Suspension works

Maalox Plus Antacid Mint Taste Suspension contains 3 active ingredients: simeticone, dried aluminium hydroxide gel and magnesium hydroxide.

Simeticone relieves bloating by binding small gas bubbles together to create larger ones, making it easier to pass gas.

Dried aluminium hydroxide gel and magnesium hydroxide are two antacids. They work together to neutralise stomach acids, relieving the symptoms of indigestion and heartburn.
