Lack of tone in the digestive organs j means that the stomach iak no longer j able to do its work as nature intended, j The nerves that control It are weak, ( the glands that supply the digestive j fluids are not working properly. Gas I on the stomach, sour risings in the-j throat and constipation result. The i cause of the trouble is thin blood, j Stomach, nerves and glands are all de- , pendent on the blood and when it gets j thin and watery they are at once j weakened. Dr. Williams' Pink Pills i act directly on the blood and the first J response from the stomach is a better i appetite, freedom from distress after | eating and an increase in ambition and i energy generally. Try Dr. Williams' Pink Pills as a stomach tonic and see how your general health Improves. A diet book.
