Andrews plus sachets contains the active ingredients citric acid, sodium bicarbonate, sodium carbonate and ascorbic acid. These active ingredients work rapidly and effectively to relieve discomfort associated with headache, stomach ache and an acid indigestion. It is recommended to be taken when your stomach feels uncomfortable due to over-eating and drinking.Sodium bicarbonate is used in a serious condition called metabolic acidosis. This is when the acidity of blood and tissues is abnormally high. It arises when the body's normal acid balancing mechanisms fail, for example, in cardiac arrest or severe kidney disease. Sodium bicarbonate neutralises the excess acid.Sodium bicarbonate, ascorbic acid and citric acid form antacids by their effervescent reaction with water. They decrease the acidity of the stomach's juices, by binding to and neutralising acid produced in excess. This helps to relieve the symptoms of heartburn and indigestion and settles the stomach. The combination of these medicines is used primarily to relieve headaches accompanied by an upset stomach, which can often occur after over-indulgence in food, drink or both. It can also be used to relieve various other types of aches and pains.
