"Advice" is the noun.

"Advise" is the verb, so you would use "advised" adjectivally in this sentence.

"What is your advice about this matter?"
What do you advise about this matter?"

There's a good mnemonic, but it only works for British English speakers (and speakers of other dialects - unlike Am English - that make this distinction):

"practise" like "advise"
"practice" like "advice"
