About ENO

Discomfort after meals? Acid indigestion? Heartburn? Stomach discomfort? ENO can help with all of that.

The inventor of ENO

Our story begins over 150 years ago at a little pharmacy in Newcastle, where a visionary young man named J.C. Eno had a revolutionary idea — to improve the health and lives of people everywhere by helping them deal with the digestive problems they faced daily. Inspired by sailors who often ate in excess upon return to port, Mr. Eno was determined to create a simple solution that could work in harmony with the body’s natural processes to relieve every kind of symptom caused by acid indigestion. From its inception, people across the globe talked about the delicious taste, far better than the unappealing remedies of the time.

“A world of woes is avoided by those who keep and use ENO’s Fruit Salt; therefore no family should ever be without it.”

- J.C. ENO

How ENO works on acid indigestion

How does ENO work with your body? First, you’ll need to start by understanding your digestive system. Stomach acid helps digest food, but sometimes your body may have trouble combating this acid indigestion, which causes discomfort, especially when produced in excess. This is where ENO can help.

ENO is made with sodium carbonate, sodium bicarbonate, and citric acid. Its ingredients dissolve quickly to create an effervescent solution which neutralizes stomach acid on contact. And it’s also gentle on the stomach.
