HOW TO PREVENT
ACID STOMACHS AND
FOOD FERMENTATION 1
By a Ste«»rh SprrialUt
As a specialist who has spent many
J*e»rs in thf study and treatment of i
st<rnach. troubles. 1 have been for. r-i to
the conclusion that mast people who
complain of stomach trouble possess
stomachs that .:c absolutely healthv
and normaL The real trouble, that
which causes all the paia and difficulty, j
is excessive :cid in stomach, aggra- '
vated by food fermentation. Hvper- j
acidity irritates the delicate lining of
t-.ie stomach and food fermentation
causes wind which distends the stomach '
abnormally, causing that full bloated
feeling. Thus both acid and fermenta- I
tion interfere with and retard the pro- !
of digestion. The stomach is usu- '
ally healthy and normal, bat ir-itr.tei I
almost pist endurance by these foreign
elements—acid -;nd wind. In ai such '
cases—and they comprise over 90 per
cent, of all stomach difficulties—the
first and only step necessary is to neu
tralise the acid and stop the fermen- 1
ration by taking in a little warm or
cold water immediately after eating,
from one to two teaspoonfuls of bisur- |
ated magnesia, which is doubtless the !
best and only really effective antacid j
and food corrective known. The acid '
will be neutralizes, and the fermenta- ,
tion stopped almost instantly, and > our !
stomach will at once proceed to digest i
the food in a healthy, normal manner
Be sure to ask your druggist for the i
bisurated magnesia, as I have found
other forms utterly lacking in its pe
?uliarly valuable properties.—F. J. G. 1
