Overindulged? Stressed? Not eating right?
Stress, dining out, late nights and the general excesses of our busy lifestyles can lead to extra stress and strain on our health often resulting in an increase in heartburn and indigestion. Luckily there is a fast and effective remedy available, Andrew’s TUMS.
Great tasting TUMS has been providing relief for Aussie tummies for over 20 years and is one of the most trusted fast acting antacids for men and women of all ages. TUMS quickly and effectively neutralises excess painful stomach acid, relieves heartburn, upset stomachs and indigestion, so you can get back on with your day
Aluminium and magnesium free, and containing calcium carbonate (500mg), TUMS is also safe for pregnant women from the 2nd trimester. Unlike many chalky antacids available, TUMS is easy to chew and come in great tasting orange flavoured tablets so even children (over the age of 6) will be happy to take one for an upset stomach.
Most healthy adults will experience heartburn and indigestion from time to time. Heartburn occurs when acid rises up from the stomach into the oesophagus and irritates and inflames delicate tissues. Occasional heartburn can be triggered by and are best avoided:
• Eating fatty or acidic food
• Eating a large meal and then doing some kind of physical activity, like lifting or bending
• Too much coffee or alcohol
• Anxiety, which can make the stomach 'churn'
• Pregnancy, when the womb pushes up against the stomach.
(Please seek medical attention if heartburn and indigestion is constant and persists.)
Andrew’s TUMS is available in leading supermarkets and pharmacies throughout Australia for the recommended retail price of $2.95 for 20 tablets and $4.95 for 40 tablets.
(Always read the label. use only as directed. if symptoms persist see your healthcare professional.)

Editor: Most travellers, myself included, love to sample the foods of the country we are in.
Many times, mostly in India, it has been a case of too much curry and spice. During Christmas, for the sake of this report (?) I did overindulge. But two Tums and within minutes I was feeling a lot more comfortable.
