What is indigestion?

Indigestion is the discomfort you can sometimes feel in your stomach after you’ve eaten a meal. Many people suffer from indigestion at some point in their lives, and it usually isn’t anything to worry about. If you have indigestion, you may notice any of the following symptoms after you’ve eaten:

How do these tablets help to ease indigestion?

Tums Antacid tablets contain the active ingredient calcium carbonate, which helps to neutralise your stomach acid. When you have excess stomach acid, this can irritate the delicate lining of your stomach and may cause stomach acid to try to work its way up to your throat, which leads to heartburn.
