big help fo BOWELS
What a joy to have the bowels move
like clockwork, every day! It's easy,
if you mind these simple rules of a
famous old doctor:
1. Drink a big tumblerful of water
before breakfast, and several
times a day.
2. Get pie; y of outdoor exercise
without unduly fatiguing yourself.
3. Try for a bowel movement at
exactly the same hour every day.
Everyone's bowels need help at
times, but the thing to use is Dr.
Caldwell's Syrup Pepsin. You'll get
a thorough cleaning-out, and it won't
leave your insides weak and watery.
This family doctor's prescription is
just fresh laxative herbs, pure pepsin,
and other helpful ingredients that
couldn't hurt a child. But how it
wakes up those lazy bowels I How
good you feel with your system rid
of all that poisonous waste matter.
