G. T. Want Ads Get Results.
Constipation may very easily become
chronic after forty. And any continued
constipation at that time of life may
bring attacks of piles and a host of
other unpleasant disorders.
Watch your bowels at any age.
Guard them with particular care after
forty. Whenever they need any help,
remember a doctor should know what
is best for them.
"Dr. Caldwell's Syrup Pepsin"
is a doctor's prescription for the bowels.
Tested by 47 years practice, it has
been found thoroughly effective in
relieving constipation and its ills for
men, women and children of all ages.
It has proven perfectly safe even for
babies. Made from fresh laxative
herbs, pure pepsin and other harmless
ingredients, it cannot gripe; will not
sicken you or weaken you; can be used
without harm as often as your breath
is bad, or when your tongue is coated;
whenever a headachy, bilious, gassy
condition warns of constipation.
