Make You Weak?
Most phyiics do. Silts, castor oil, ami nearly
all the patent tablets and pills sold as cathartus
and laxatives have a dangerous effect upon the
digestive organs. In time, strength is regained
but not before great danger is done to the tissues
of the bowels and intestines.
Dr. Caldwell's Siirup Pepsin
is not like any other physic you can tale, because
instead of weakening the intestinal muscles, it gives
them strength sufficient to voluntarily perform
Dr. Caldwell's Syrup Pepsin, unlike other
remedies often taken for stomach disorders, does
not create a habit which makes it necessary fur
the patient to continue its use. Physics that
leave you weak, that cause you to perspire, and
to feel nervous invariably do great harm.
You never experience any such unpleasant and
dangerous sensations from taking Dr. Caldwell's
Syrup i'epsin. It is a pleasantly palatable rem.
edy which never causes griping and in all cases
of constipation, indigestion, dyspepsia, gas on
stomach, and all other disorder! arising from such
ailments it quickly and permanently cures.
All druggists sell Dr. Caldwell's Syrup Pepsin at 50c and Jtl.co a bottle.
