30 FEET OF BOWELS are packed away in your insides and must be kept clean, in order and doing business.
It’s a long way, with many turns and pitfalls to catch the refuse and clog the channel if not most carefully cleaned out every day.
When this long canal is blockaded, look out for trouble:
- furred tongue
- bad breath
- belching of gases
- yellow spots
- pimples and boils
- spitting up of food after eating – an all-around disgusting nuisance
Violent calomel purges or griping salts are dangerous to use for cleaning out the bowels. They force out the obstruction by causing violent spasms of the bowels, but they leave the intestines weak and even less able to keep up regular movements than before, and make a larger dose necessary next time.
Then you have the pill habit, which kills more people than the morphine and whiskey habits combined.
The only safe, gentle but certain bowel cleansers are sweet, fragrant CASCARETS, because they don’t force out the fecal matter with violence, but act as a tonic on the whole 30 feet of bowel wall, strengthen the muscles and restore healthy, natural action. Buy and try them! (Look out for imitations and substitutes or you can’t get results. Cascarets are never sold in bulk. Look for the trade-mark, the long-tailed “C” on the box.) You will find that in an entirely natural way your bowels will be promptly and permanently Made CLEAN and STRONG by Cascarets Liver Tonic. Best for the Bowels
