TOOK PILLS FOR YEARS THEN CEREAL BROUGHT RELIEF Kellogg's ALL-BRAN Corrected His Constipation If you are troubled by common constipation, read this letter: "Just a -word in appreciation of what your ALL-BRAN has done for my health. For years, I had been doping myself with pills and other dopes for constipation. "I decided to try Kellogg's ALL- BRAN. Now I am in good health, and haven't taken a drop of medicine for six months." -- Thos. F. Little, 564 E. Wheeling St., Lancaster, Ohio. Headaches, loss of appetite and energy, sleeplessness--any one of these may be caused by common constipation. Yet this condition can be corrected, usually, by eating a delicious cereal. Tests show Kellogg's ALL-BRAN provides "bulk" and vitamin B to help promote regularity. ALL-BRAN also furnishes iron for the blood. The "bulk" in ALL-BRAN is much like that in leafy vegetables. How much safer than patent medicines! Two tablespoonfuls of ALL-BRAN 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." Serve as a cereal or use in cooking. At all grocers in the red-and- green package. Get ALL-BRAN, and not a part-bran product. Made by Kellogg in Battle Creek.
