We know that fatty, spicy foods are hard to avoid at most iftar spreads. But over-indulging after a fast can often lead to heartburn. Remember to pack an over-the-counter indigestion remedy like dependable old Gaviscon. Gastroenterology specialist Dr Ahmed Suleiman Nayal says, “I have no hesitation in recommending Gaviscon – it’s been doing the job admirably for over four decades.” Take it immediately after breaking your fast at iftar or eating at suhoor and it’ll work for up to four hours. Simple.
INFO: Gaviscon Original is available as Gaviscon Aniseed Liquid Relief, Dhs11, and Gaviscon Peppermint tablets, Dhs13.
