What are Rennie Peppermint Tablets?

Rennie Peppermint Tablets are a form of treatment that helps to relieve indigestion and heartburn, as well as flatulence upset stomach, and hyperacidity. They work thanks to the two active ingredients, calcium carbonate and magnesium carbonate, which are what is called antacids. Antacids neutralise excess stomach acid by turning it into the water and other natural substances before being removed from the body.
