What are Setlers Antacid Peppermint Tablets?
Setlers Antacid Tablets are a treatment for the effects of indigestion and heartburn. These tablets contain the active ingredient calcium carbonate, which is an antacid. An antacid is a substance that provides relief by neutralising the stomach acid that is responsible for the symptoms. This is done thanks to the alkaline ions in the antacid that balance out the pH level of the stomach acid.
