A Great Dyspepsia turcr, Prepared from
Bcnnct, or the fourth Stomach ol the Ox.
after directions of Baron Liebig, the great
Physiological Chemist, by J. S. Hopghton,
M. D., No. 11, Notib Eighth Street, l'hila
delphta, Pa.
This is a truly wonderful remedy for Indi
gestion, Dyspepsia, Juu<lice, Liver Com
plaint, Constipation, and Debility, Curing
after Nature's own method, by Nature's own
agent, the Gastric Juice.
tST Half n spoontul of this Fluid infused
in water, will digest or dissolve, Five founds
of Roost Reef in about two hours, out of the
Digestion is ChieHy performed in the
'Stomach by the aid ot a fluid which freelv
exudes from the inner coat of that organ,
when in a state ol health, called the Gastric
Juice. This fluid is tho Great solvent of the
Food, the Purifying, Prescrt ing, and Stimula
ting Agent of the stomach and iutenslines.
■Without it there wilt be no digestion,—no
conversion of food into blood, and no nu
trition of the body; but rather a foul, torpid,
painf'il, and destructive condition of the
whole digestive apparatus. A weak, hull
dead, or injured stomach produces no good
Gastric Juice, and hence tho disetue, dis
tressful debility which ensue. _
Pepsin a>d ßennet. —Pepsin is the chief
element, or great Digesting Principle of the
Gastiic Juice. It is found in great abnn.
dance m tho solid parts of tho human stom
acli after do ith, and sometimes causes the
stomach to diiresl itself, or eat i'sell up. It
is also found in the stomach of animals, as
the ox, call, &c. It is tho material tired by
farmers in makirg cheese, called Rennet,
the effect of which has long been tho spe
cial wonder of the dairy. The curdling ol
milk is the first process of digestion. Ren
net possesses astonilii' g power. The stom
ach of a calf will curdle r.early one thou
sand limes its own weight of milk. Baron
Liehig states that, 'One part et Pepsin dis
solved in sixty thousand parts of water, will
digest meat and other food." Diseased
stomachs produce no good Gastric Juice
Rennet or Pepsin. To show that this warn
may be perfectly supplied, we quote the
Bibon Lif.b;g, in celebrated work on
Animal Chemistry, says: ''An Artificial Di
gestive fluid analogous to the Gastric Juice,
may fcc readily prepared from the nucous
membrane of the stomach ol tho Call, in
which various articles of Ic.od, as meat and
eggs! will be softcneu, changed, and diges
ted, just in tho same 'mariner as they would
be in tho human stomach."
Dr. Pereira. in his famous treatise on
"Fond and Diet." published by Fowlers &
Wells, New York, page 35. slates the same
great lout, and describes the method of prep
aration. There are few higher authorities
than Dr. Pereira.
Dr Combe, in his valuable writings on
the "Physiology of Digestion," observes
that "a diminution of the due quantity ol
the Gastiie Juice is a prominent and all pre
vailing cause of Dyspepsia;" anil he states
that "a distinguished urofessor of medicine
in London, who was severely afflicted with
this complaint finding every thing clso to
fail, had recourse to the Gastric Juice, ob
tained from the stomach of living animals,
which proved completely successful"
Dr. Graham, author of the famous works
on "Vegetable Diet.'' says : "it is a rerriar
knble (act in physiology , that tho stomachs
of animals, macerated in water, impart to
the fluid the properly of dissolving various
articles of food, and of effecting a kind o!
artificial digestion of thern in no wise dif
ferent from ihe natural digestive process."
Dr. Simon's great work, the "Chemistry
of Man," (Lea & Bln'i haul, l'hila.. 1846
pp. 3212): "Ihe discovery of PEJ'SIN
fn rr s a new era in the chemical history ot
I)i ge:ion. Fiorn recent experiments we
know that fond is dissolved as rapidly in an
artificial digestive fluid, prepared from Pep
sin as it is in the natural Gastric Juice it
Professor DungUson of tho Jefferson Col
lege, Philadelphia, in Ins great work on Iln
man Physiology, devotes more than fifiy
Eages to an examination of this subject.
:is experiments with Di Beaumont, on the
Gastric Juice, obtained from tho living hu
man stomach and Irom animals are weti
known. "In all cases," he say ß , "digestion
occurred as perfectly in the artificial as the
natural digestions."
