Although people often use the terms interchangeably, there is a difference between heartburn and indigestion.
Heartburn is an unpleasant condition that occurs when acid from the stomach leaks into the oesophagus and rises upwards to cause pain and discomfort in the chest.
Indigestion is a general term for pain or discomfort felt in the stomach and under the ribs. It is often triggered by eating or drinking things that make the stomach produce large amounts of acid e.g. spicy foods or alcohol.
Rennie® treats both heartburn and indigestion by turning the excess acid at the source of the problem into water and other natural substances.
Rennie® Extra is different to the rest of the Rennie® range in that it contains both antacid and alginate formulation meaning it works in two different ways. The antacid gets to the source of the problem by turning the excess acid into water and other natural substances and alginate forms a protective raft over the contents of the stomach, quickly soothing the symptoms of heartburn and indigestion.
