The question as to how long you are
goinu to continue a sufferer from In
digestion, dyspepsia or out-of-order
stomach is merely a matter of how
soon you begin taking Hloodine .
If your stomach is lacking in diges
tiv.? power, why not help the stomach
I to do its work, not with drastic drugs,
but as re-enforcement of digestive
agents, such as are naturally at work
in the stomach.
People with weak stomachs should
take a little Hloodine occasionally, and
there will be no more indigestion, no
feeling like a lump of lead in the stom
ach no heartburn sour risings, gas on
stomach, or belching of undigested
food, headaches, dizziness or sick
stomach: and besides, what you eat
will not ferment and poison your
breath with nauseous odors. All these
i symptoms resulting from a sour out
of-order stomach and dyspepsia are
generally relieved live minutes after
taking a little Hloodine.
Co to your druggist and get a 50
cent bottle of Bloodino now and you
will always go to the table with a
hearty appetite, and what you eat will
taste good, because your stomach and
intestines will be ( lean and fresh, and
you will know there are not going to
bo any more bad nichts and miserable
days for you. Hloodine will refreshen
you and make you feel like life Is
