Alka-Mints (calcium carbonate): “These Alka-Mints work as well or better than Tums and are easier to breakup by chewing, also I love the spearmint flavor. No one else seems to make spearmint antacids.”

Alka-Seltzer Fruit Chews (Antacid) (calcium carbonate): “I've been taking these every day for months now, (mostly because I don't eat much) and it helps a lot! The only downside to it is I have small bowel issues (to my knowledge at least) and these don't help, but the effects are minor.”
