What is Rennie Heartburn, Indigestion & Wind Relief?
Rennie Heartburn, Indigestion & Wind Relief is an antacid treatment that works to neutralise excess stomach acid. These tablets can treat a number of conditions including heartburn, indigestion, trapped wind, and an upset stomach. This is thanks to the active ingredients that are contained in the tablets.
