Recapture the Old Joy
x Of Living 3 ;,
HAS life lost its zest? Do you suffer pretty constantly
from nervous depression "the blues?"
Very often this state of things is brought on by poor elimin
ation. Constipation is the underlying cause of many a case
of "nerves" as any doctor will tell you.
Once get rid of constipation permanently and you will be
amazed at the transformation in your health and spirits.
Laxtives and cathartics won't cure you of constipation.
They give only temporary relief and tend , to form a habit
which is exceedingly dangerous. '
But you will find in Nuiol a rational means of restoring normal,
healthful bowel activity. Nujol is a pure white mineral oil conform
ng to all the requirements of the Lane treatment for constipation, which
physicians everywhere are now prescribing as the safest and most effect
ive means of restoring normal bowel activity.
It is not a laxative but a lubricant. Being entirely mechanical in its
action it may bb taken in any quantity without harm.
Nujol is colorless, odorless, and tastelessl ,
Write for booklet, "The Rational Treatment of Constipation." If
your druggist hasn't it, we will send a pint bottle of Nujol prepaid to
any point in the United States on receipt of75c money order or stamps.
