Pros: Tastes good, easy to transport, works quickly on symptoms
You never know when Heartburn or acid indigestion can strike, and it isn't such a bad idea to carry around an "antidote". If you buy in a large container that isn't always the easiest thing to carry around, but if you get tablets in small packs of 10, it becomes very easy to just take it along in your pocket. Such is the case with the Rolaids Extra Strength Antacid Tablets, 3 Roll Pack, Tropical Punch Flavor. Purchasing a box, you receive 3 rolls of 10 tablets, which are the easiest thing possible to carry around in your pocket or purse. They come in an assortment of flavors, including cherry, but I am talking about the tropical punch flavor of the tablets.
The Rolaids Extra Strength Antacid Tablets are designed to work in cases where heartburn or indigestion has taken place, or as a preventative measure if you feel you have eaten something that could cause either symptom in the near future. The tablets themselves are about the size of two dimes stacked up, and are really easy to consume. With these tablets, it isn't even necessary to take water when you are using them. The other benefit (besides the fact that they work great), is that they taste good, and don't leave you with a bad after-taste in your mouth. A lot of times when it comes to medicine, you are more likely to come back to a brand if you end up being able to deal easily with the taste. With the Rolaids Tropical Punch flavor, you have something that tastes even better than Tums, and is much easier to take around with you on a daily basis.
There are a lot of places that sell these Rolaids as single rolls of 12, but you save a little money if you purchase them as part of a 3 pack of 12. The typical price is less than $2.00 for the box, so it is really inexpensive to purchase them, and put them into use. The best part about the price, is that it then becomes a product that you can test out, and if you aren't satisfied with the results, or you cannot stand the taste, then you can just toss them out and you aren't out a lot of money. One of the benefits that arent advertised as much, is that Rolaids can also serve as a nice calcium supplement to your diet. It isn't something that is going to cover all the calcium that you need in a day, but every little bit can help if you aren't putting enough into your diet.
For people who are always on the go, and don't have the time to always be heading home when heartburn and indigestion hits, this is a great product for you. Because it is easy to attain, painless to use, and because it is easily transported by its users, I highly recommend using this product. A warning that I do attach, is that if heartburn symptoms persist even after regular use, that you should consult a doctor, because it could be something other than normal heartburn or indigestion.
