Gaviscon Mode of Action animation

We created this animation for Gavison to show how Gaviscon can work in a complementary way to medication such as PPIs (proton pump inhibitors). Reflux events are caused by the Lower Oesophageal Sphincter (LES) failing to close fully, which allows stomach acid to enter the oesophagus. This causes burning in the oesophagus, and the vapours
