As a frequent heartburn and acid reflux suffer, I decided to give this product a try. After suffering with a bad night of heartburn, I went to the medicine cabinet and grabbed my bottle of Kroger antacid. I took the maximum dosage of four teaspoons; the medication had a pleasant taste. I drank a tall glass of water to help wash down the medication. After about fifteen minutes I started to feel relief so I went to go lay back down in bed. After about thirty minutes past I felt more pain and bloating so I got up to take some more. This time I only took one teaspoon full and chased it with a glass of water. I was able to go a sleep without suffering from continued heartburn.
This product is fast acting, tasty and does the job as well as Mylanta. I will continue to use this product to battle my heartburn woes. Before using Kroger brand antacid ask your doctor if you are taking a prescription drug, have kidney disease or if you are on a magnesium restricted diet.
