weaken the intestinal muscles and render
the body unable to function normally.
Unlike drugs, Fleischmann's Yeast actu

contain a natural food with the very
elements which help the body perform its
two vital functions: (1) Remove regularly
all of the poisonous waste j (2) Build up
the living tistuet from day to day.
Like any other plant or vegetable, yeast
produces the best results when fresh and
