really responsible for the formula
from which rtexa.ll Dyspepsia Tablets
are made. We have simply profited

Our experience with Rexall Dys
pepsia Tablets leads us to believe
them to be an excellent remedy for
the relief of acute indigestion and
chronic dyspepsia. Their ingredients
are soothing and healing to the in
flamed membranes of the stomach.
They are rich in pepsin, one of the
greatest digestive aids known to
medicine. The relief they afford is
almost immediate. Their use with
persistency and regularity for a short
time helps to bring about a cessation
of the pains caused by stomach dis
orders. Rexall Dyspepsia Tablets aid to
Insure healthy appetite, aid digestion
and promote nutrition. As evidence
