Many people assume that a laxative must take six to eight hours to bring relief. And it's true that many laxatives- pills, gum, medicated chocolateoften take that long.

But not Sal Hepatica! Sal Hepatica is the fast -acting laxative that's made to help you start feeling better right away. It quickly sparkles away gas pain, heartburn, and sour stomach due to gastric acidity- I CHRISTMASO ALE which most other laxatives ignore. Then it speeds on, as only a fluid can, to relieve constipation and the sluggishness of ir. regularity--quickly yet gently. Usually in less than two hours! Next: time irregularity puts you in "slow motion," don't settle for one of those "slow motion" laxatives.
