A. 3VE PIO ZEST Liver and Stomach Pills. mHESE PILLS are compounded from the JL recipe of one of the most eminent physicians of the preseiitday (who, from purely philanthropic motives— knowing their excellent properties by experience- haa been induced to give the benefit of them to the public at large). They are prepared by an able and experienced chemist, and are acknow ledged, by the faculty, to be the most valuable medicine for all disorders of the stomach, and derangements of the liver, ever prepared. It, is a well-known fact that most of the diseases incident to the human race, arise from a disordered stomach, and irregular state of the bowels, and for want of a suitable remedy, taken in time, thousands of (at first) simple mala- dies, become serious illnesses. To guard against this great evil, and to preserve the blessings of health these pills are confidently and earnestly recommended. They act generally on the constitution, cleanse the blood ot H impurities; regulate the secretions, and give tone to the stomach; correct toe ruorbid condition of the liver, tegulate the bowels, and, by removing all impediments, restore elasticity and vigour to the whole irame.
