The great American ailment is indigestion RAPID eating, keeping the brain constantly at work during meal time, and bad cookery-these lay the foundation for the conditions that nine out of every ten Americans suffer from. The food is imperfectly masticated, there is an insufficient flow of saliva, and the inevitable result is seen in the various mild forms of indigestion with which we are all familiar. To relieve these conditions there is nothing better than the routine use of my original pepsin chewing gum. It stimulates the salivary glands, insures sufficient saliva, relaxes nerve tension, and aids the digestive processes. Thousands have obtained relief from their digestive troubles by the simple expedient of chewing Beeman's Pepsin Gum for ten to twenty minutes after each meal.
