There was many * night I didn't get but a few hours' sleep. Imagine going to bed and then rolling and tossing most ol the night. So many of my friends had been praising HADACAL that I finally decided to try HADACOL. After three bottles of HADACOL I could tell a definite improvement. . . now, after taking HADACOL for over i year. I feel Just wonderful. I am not tired or restless during the day; I can do all my housework ind still have energy lo spare. Slcep.why, I sleep like a lop. Just as soon as my head hits the pillow I doie oil. And the most wonderful thing Is lhat I can aclually eat the way a person should eat—and I really do enjoy my food. HADACOL li absolutely wonderful. There Is nothing like HADACOL.
