I see a commercial (TUMS) where a guy is asked if he's still eating chalk for heartburn?
Does chalk, even though not edible, cool heartburn?

    I've seen the commercial , They've been complaining about chalky tasting antacids sense Maalox . Having the guy actually eat chalk is just this years version of an old advertising campaign .

    Heartburn and indigestion are normally associated with the over production of acid in the stomach (which itself is normally due to there being too much salt and fat present in the system).

    Chalk is mostly the alkali substance calcium carbonate which neutralises acid whilst producing CO2 (carbon dioxide) in the process. Which explains why quite often people feel the need to burp after taking an anti-acid...
