Nera St., South Norwalk, Conn. Common constipation frequently causes headaches, loss of appetite \-r\A cnerirv Yet this condition can be overcome, usually, by eating Kellogg's ALL-BRAN. Tests show this delicious cereal provides "bulk" and vitamin B to Hi1 elimination. ALL-BRAN is also rich in iron for the blood. The "bulk" in ALL-BRAN is much! like that in leafy vegetables. Inside the body, it forms a soft mass. Gently this clears out the intestinal wastes. Isn't this safer than taking harmful patent medicines? Two tabk- spoonfuls daily are usually sufficient. Chronic cases, with each meal. If seriously ill, see your doctor. ALL-BRAN makes no claim to be a "cure-all." Enjoy ALL-BRAN as a cereal witH milk or cream.
