Rolaids is sold in retail stores across the United States and is available in both tablets and a new liquid form. The liquid is a first for the brand, as is new Ultra Strength formulation in both tablets and liquid. Ultra Strength Tablets and Liquid deliver Rolaids' strongest level of acid neutralization. Chattem will support the re-launch of Rolaids with a fully integrated marketing campaign featuring chef and restaurateur Guy Fieri.

Heartburn occurs when the opening between the stomach and esophagus malfunctions and allows stomach acid to enter the esophagus. More than two-thirds of all U.S. adults experience heartburn at least once per month.
