Read on web that it can help as reduces acid reflux, coats stomach and keeps food down. Just taken first two spoonfuls (yuck!), so not sure if it will work yet....

Anyone tried it?

I used it for heartburn. A glass of milk also works, as do Rennies.

I had a huge bottle of it on prescription when I was pregnant but couldn't face any more after that. In the end asked GP for ranitidine (Zantac) which worked wonders.
