It depends on what kind you buy. You're going to want something with Simethicone in it for bloating; usually something touted for "gas relief." Regular Tums are just Calcium Carbonate, I believe. There are some Rolaids that have Simethicone in them, and some Maalox, or just plain old Gas-X chewables (swallowables have gelatine)

I have heard that a tsp of apple cider vinegar before eating is better than tums.<br><br><br><br>
Usually you have gas becasue you have not enough acid in your stomach. Tums kills the acid, so your body produces more acid--<br><br><br><br>
Bloating---> it depends what the cause is?
