Rheumatism is caused by an excess of uric acid in the blood, which
gradually gets into the circulation because of indigestion, constipation, weak
kidney action, and other irregularities of the system which are sometimes
considered of no importance. This uric acid'eauses an inflamed and irritated
condition of the blood, and the circulation instead of nourishing the diflerent
portions of the body, continually deposits into the nerves, muscles, tissues
and joints, the irritating, pain-producing acid with which it is filled. Rheu
matism can only be cured by a thorough cleansing of the blood, and this is
just what S. S. S. does. It goes down into the circulation, and by neutral
izing the uric acid and driving it from the blood, effectually and surely
removes the cause. S. S. S. strengthens and invigorates the blood so that
instead of a weak, sour stream, causing pain and agony thoughout the sys
tem, it becomes an invigorating, nourishing fluid, furnishing health and
vigor to every part of the body and relieving the suffering caused by this
disease. S. S. S. being a purely vegetable blood purifier, is the surest and
safest cure for Rheumatism in any of its forms. Book on Rheumatism and
any medical advice desired sent free to all who write.
