THESE FACTS ABOUT BRAN HAVE BEEN PROVED BY TESTS Supplies Gently Acting "Bulk" to Aid Regular Habits Now and then, in talking with your friends, the subject of bran has come up.

How different from cathartics--where dosage often must be increased. Another series of tests on men indicated that, with some people, thei "bulk" in bran was much more effective than that found in fruits) and vegetables. Further tests showed that Kellogg's ALL-BKAN provided vitamin B and iron as well as "bulk." This "bulk" absorbs moisture, and gently exercises and cleanses tha system -- the right way to correct constipation. Serve Alt-BnAN regularly for regularity. Either as a cereal, with milk or cream, or in cooked dishes. It is a natural laxative food. Sold by all grocers. Made by Kellogg in Battle Creek.
