What is Heartburn?

Stomach acid is important for normal digestion, but sometimes it can travel to the wrong place and cause pain and discomfort.


Heartburn occurs when stomach acid escapes into the oesophagus (which connects the throat to the stomach). As the oesophagus doesn’t have the same protective coating as the stomach, the acid can cause damage and inflammation, which can lead to a burning pain in the chest that can spread up towards the neck.

UP TO 25%
of Adults regulary
experience Heartburn.

Zantac Brings Acid Down to relieve the burning pain and discomfort of heartburn

How Zantac Works

Zantac Works Differently to
Antacids to relieve Heartburn

 

Many people chew or drink chalky antacids to relieve their heartburn. These may give fast relief, but they only neutralise the acid that is already in the stomach, so the relief is short lived.

Rather than neutralising stomach acid, Zantac controls stomach acid production by reducing its volume. This means less acid can rise up and burn.

Taking a single Zantac tablet helps control acid production and provides relief from the symptoms of heartburn for up to 24 hours* meaning you don’t have to let heartburn take the shine off your night!

* Available in 12hr and 24hr formulas

 

Zantac is available at all good pharmacies and supermarkets
