“A Cure For Over-Indulgence”

published 08/05/2010

Works Quickly

Tastes Foul

I was away for a weekend break a couple of weeks ago with a few of my girlie friends. Needless to say we over-indulged in too much laughter, lots of rich food and perhaps one or two more glasses of vino than usual. I have to say my husband looked slightly concerned when he met me from the station...

Work quickly to relieve stomach problems

None

A Christmas must have Original Andrews salts are something which I have grown up with back in the day when they were still called Andrews liver salts. This white powder which is available in chemists and supermarkets up and down the country is a bit of a British institution and with good reason...

Work quickly, effective for numerous ailments

None

I refer to these as Andrews Liver Salts as that is what I remember them being called when I was a child and we always had a tin of these in the house. They are just called Andrews Salts now which I suppose makes them sound a bit more appealing and they are now in a plastic container with a small...

quick relief

none

I have been using Andrews Liver Salts for as long as I can remember. I remember finding it in my mum and dads bathroom cabinet and thinking " I wonder what this tastes like". I had stomach ache and really wanted to see if it worked. All you need to do is pour yourself a glass of cold water, then...

Effective for bloatedness and indigestion

Very laxative if too much taken

Andrews Salts is an old fashioned ‘digestive discomfort’ remedy I always have in the house. It comes in a small blue and white tin and is full of fine white powder that would probably get you arrested if you were to bag it up and take it through customs. There are up to 20 doses in...

“Andrew's Salts”

published 09/07/2013

Handy, fairly cheap, not chalky like some antacids

Taste, not the most effective for indigestion

I used to be a massive fan of this product back when I was a child. I actually used to just add the powder to water and drink it as I really liked the taste. I remember when I was a child, it came in a small round tin, which I had to open with a spoon and then use the spoon to add the powder to...

Not for those with serious long-term health issues...

Andrews Liver Salts are an excellent remedy for problems you might have with dyspepsia, stomach cramps, buildup of excess stomach acids, constipation, general stomach ache and that sort of thing. You can get a 150g tub for around £1.50 - £2 in all local chemists and drug stores, as well as...

“nostalgia trips”

published 26/04/2004

Portable, easy to take

Taste

Ironically, while reading other reviews on this product, I developed really bad stomach pains & indigestion, so with this in mind, I sent out for some of this, as I remembered it tasting really nice when I was younger, and it was also very effective. Having not tried this in possibly 10 years...

I first discovered this when I had a bit of an upset stomach and my mother told me to take some. I had always seen the pot in the medicine drawer in the kitchen but had no idea what it was and I'd heard of things like Alka-seltzer and rennie etc. as other means of indigestion relief. The product...

It really does work

Quite Expensive

Nothing attracts less sympathy than a self-inflicted injury. I wonder how many of you out there, like myself, have over indulged the night before. You know the one, you've overdone it on a combination of too much food and alcoholic drink. You wake up with a head that feels like its been...

“Tastes foul”

none for me

made me vomit

Andrews Salts are sold to relieve stomach dicomfort and constipation. They come in a little blue, oval shaped, plastic container and looks like fine white powder. You get a free measuring spoon with it. You just put a level teaspoon full into a glass of water and it fizzes up. Then you drink it...

I've been using Andrews for years to great effect. But, like another reviewer, my wife finds it makes her vomit - and I've known a few other women for which Andrews produced the same result. So, is this just a female thing? Or do some men react badly to Andrews also?

Question

published 03/09/2011

I suffer from a permanent bloated tummy. Would this help if I took it every morning?
Open question Answer

Answer

I occasionally suffer from the same. I find taking peppermint oil tablets keeps the problem under control.
