Magnesium hydroxide has two main actions in the gut. It has an antacid action and in higher doses a laxative action.

Magnesium hydroxide binds to excess acid produced by the stomach. This neutralises the acid and decreases the acidity of the stomach contents, thereby relieving indigestion, heartburn and wind. Magnesium hydroxide is often found in indigestion remedies.

Magnesium hydroxide can also be used short-term for the treatment of constipation. It works by causing water to be drawn into the lower bowel. This increases the water content and volume of the stools, making them softer and easier to pass.
