A stomachful of undigested food is
about as unhealthy a mass as one can
well imagine. What can be done with
it? There it stays. It won't digest. It
churns up, ferments and decays; be
comes poisonous (as all putrid matter
does) and causes great pain and deep
seatd disorders. In order to change
all this, take Shaker Digestive Cordial.
It 6tops fermentation and decay at once,
so that no more poisons are created. It
clears the stomach of poisons already
there, it helps it to turn the food that
remains, into healthful nourishment.
It strengthens the stomach for the next
meal. Here is the whole philosophy
ana cure oi indigestion in a rew words.
And what's more, it's all true. Try it.
