Benefits of Bsox Gel

In Treatment of Acidity

Acidity is a condition when your stomach produces more acid than is needed for the digestion of food. Bsox Gel helps treat acidity. Bsox Gel gives relief from burning sensation and stomach pain associated with acidity.

In Treatment of Heartburn

Heartburn is a burning feeling in your chest caused by stomach acids travelling back up towards your throat and mouth. Bsox Gel works by reducing the amount of acid your stomach makes and relieves the burning sensation and pain associated with heartburn. You can also take control of heartburn with few lifestyle changes. Think about what foods trigger heartburn and try to avoid them; eat smaller, more frequent meals; try to lose weight if you are overweight and try to find ways to relax. Avoid eating within 3-4 hours of going to bed.

In Treatment of Stomach ulcers

Stomach ulcers are painful sores that develop in the inner lining of the stomach. Bsox Gel is used to treat stomach ulcers. Bsox Gel covers the damaged ulcer tissue in the stomach and protects it against stomach acid or further injury.

You need to keep taking the medicine as it is prescribed for it to be effective, even if the symptoms seem to disappear.
