Avoid Indigestion, Sour Acid Stom
ach, Heartburn, Gns on
Stomach, Etc.
Indigestion and practically all
forms of stomach trouble, say medi
cal authorities, are due nine times
out of ten to an excess of hydro
chloric acid in the stomach. Chronic
"acid stomach" is exceedingly dang
erous and sufferers should do cither
one of two things.
Either they can go on a limited
and often disagreeable diet, avoid
ing foods that disagree with them,
that irritate the stomach and lead to
excess acid secretion or they can eat
as they please in reason and make
it a practice to counteract the effect
of the harmful acid and prevent the
formation of gas. sourness or prema
ture fermentation by the use of a
little Bisurated Magnesia ut their
There is probably no better, safer
or more reliable, stomach antiacid
than Bisurated Magnesia and it is
widely used for this purpose. It has
no direct action on the stomach and
is not a digestent. But a teaspoon
ful of the powder or a couple of five
grain tablets taken in a little water
with the food will neutralize the ex
jess acidity which may be present
and prevent its further formation.
This removes the whole cause of the
trouble and the meal digests natural
ly and healthfully without need of
pepsin pills or artificial digestents.
Get a few ounces of Bisurated Mag
