Acid Reflux Treatment

What you can do to avoid acid reflux11? 

Rennie is a fast-acting, effective remedy for heartburn and indigestion6,9. When symptoms hit, Rennie quickly gets to work to relieve painful symptoms6.

Rennie works directly on the cause of the problem - the acid in your stomach - to relieve acid reflux symptoms. Rennie acts physically and locally, rather than by entering the bloodstream.

Rennie’s antacid-based calcium carbonate and magnesium carbonate formula works fast, neutralising excess stomach acid, turning it into water and other natural substances. Rennie can be taken day or night to relieve the pain related to indigestion fast.

If you, like many others, suffer from acid reflux, don't worry: by making a few simple changes to your life-style, you can ease your symptoms. And don't forget: quick and effective medicines against the symptoms of gastro-oesophageal reflux are available without a prescription from pharmacies.

Eating and drinking: Try to sit down when you’re eating, chew well and take your time.  Try herbs instead of spice, and eat cooked vegetables, yogurt, lean meats and fish. 

Citrus fruits can be too acidic when acid reflux hits, but pears, apples, peaches and bananas can be easier on the stomach.  Excess alcohol consumption is a trigger of acid reflux1.

Sleeping habits: Elevating your head whilst sleeping can decrease the sensation of acid reflux1. This is because the elevated position helps to prevent stomach acid from rising to your chest.

Work with Gravity: Try not to lie down within three hours of eating, when acid production is at its peak, because gravity helps to keep your stomach contents down where they belong.
