Achieve Good Gut Health with Our Digestive Health Solutions

We help people to achieve gut health and live life without the boundaries of digestive issues by delivering the best possible solutions to treat heartburn (Rennie™, Alka-Seltzer™, Talcid™) constipation (Miralax™, Phillips™), Irritable Bowel Syndrome and Functional Dyspepsia (Iberogast™).

Rennie™ tablets have been on the market for over 75 years and are currently the #1 antacid tablet in the UK

Digestive discomforts such as heartburn, trapped wind, indigestion, and pregnancy-related heartburn can cause disruption and awkwardness that impact daily life. Antacids such as Rennie™ help to neutralize stomach acids, offering fast relief from indigestion and heartburn.

The Rennie™ antacid range is also vegetarian and vegan-friendly and helps individuals manage their heartburn and indigestion and also provides treatment from acid reflux symptoms. The Rennie™ product range includes peppermint, spearmint, sugar-free, as well as long-lasting formula antacids Rennie™ ICE for fast and cooling relief and Rennie™ Deflatine for trapped wind.

First formulated in France in the 1920s, and launched to market in 1930, Rennie™ has had a long history of keeping tummies happy. Today, the Rennie™ range is marketed in countries all over the world.


More than 80 years old, Alka-Seltzer™ is an antacid with analgesic product, brought to the market as a remedy for headaches and indigestion

Introduced by Miles Laboratories in the U.S. in 1931, the original Alka-Seltzer™ was conceived as a pain reliever in an effervescent form to relieve aches and pains at the onset of colds and flu.

Now, Alka-Seltzer™ is sold in 69 countries across the world with the brand representing a wide range of self-medication products with different indications, active ingredients, and dosage forms.

In the US, the biggest Alka-Seltzer™ market, Alka-Seltzer™ effervescent (with and without acetylsalicylic acid), Alka-Seltzer™ ReliefChews, and Alka-Seltzer™ Gummies, provide a broad offering for fast relief. Most recently, Alka-Seltzer PM Gummies were launched providing fast relief for occasional heartburn as well as sleep support* as they contain melatonin.
*Gummies are for Occasional Heartburn Relief

The Alka-Seltzer™ franchise is the second biggest Digestive Health brand for Bayer and the #1 brand in Mexico and Centro.


Miralax™ is the number #1 recommended laxative product by doctors, pharmacists, and gastroenterologists in the USA

Having occasional constipation can be both embarrassing and uncomfortable, and patients want a gastrointestinal solution that works in harmony with their bodies. Miralax™ is a gentle and proven laxative. Unlike stimulant laxatives, Miralax™ works together with the body’s water to unblock the system naturally, leaving you feeling relieved.

Miralax™ has an osmotic-laxative effect, which positions it differently from some other laxatives which use a more aggressive stimulant-laxative effect. The active ingredient in Miralax™ works to soften and ease stools gently through the colon without muscle spasms or cramps.

Miralax™ is available in a range of sizes, featuring a powder designed to dissolve easily into your drink, as well convenient Mix In PAX, which are perfect for traveling or for on-the-go.

Miralax™ was launched as an over-the-counter medication in 2006.
