Bad Circulation is the cause of most of the ills that come with old age. Vith
advancing years there is a decline of strength, and vigor the machinery of the
body moves with less speed and accuracy. Because of the weak and irregular
action of the heart the blood moves more slowly, becomes impure acd loses much
of its life-sustaining properties, and muscles, tissues and nerves literally starve for
lack of nourishment. A sluggish and polluted circulation is followed by a long:
train of bodily ailments. Cold feet, chilly sensations up and down the spine, poor
appetite and digestion, soreness of the muscles, rheumatic pains, hard and fissured
skin, face sores, chronic running ulcers on the lower limbs and other parts of the
body these and many other diseases peculiar to old people are due to a lack of
healthy blood and imperfect circulation. Restoration to health must come through
the building tip and purification of the blood, thus adding strength and tone to
the vital organs and quick, healthy action to the circulation.
S. S. S. being 6tncUy a vegetable blood remedy and the best tonic, makes it
the most valuable and efficacicms of all medicine for old people. It is free from all
mineral ingredients, and mild and pleasant in its action. It cures blood diseases
of every character, even those inherited or contracted in early life. As the system
gets under the influence of S. S. S. there is a marked improvement in the general
health, and as richer and purer blood begins to circulate through the body the
appetite improves, and there is a softness and elasticity about the skin that you
have not noticed for years ; sores begin to heal, pains in muscles and joints grad
ually cease, and you find that it is possible to be happy and healthy even in old age.
Our medical department is in charge of physicians who make a study of blood
and skin diseases. If you would like to have their opinion and advice in yoar
case, write them all about it and yon shall receive such information and advice as
you want. This will cost you nothing. Others have found our medical depart
ment of great benefit to .them their cure being much more rapid as the result of
some special directions received from our physicians.
