Beeman’s Original Pepsin Chewing Gum (Apr, 1918)

Beeman’s Original Pepsin Chewing Gum

“That attack of dyspepsia of which you are complaining is due to one of two causes:

“Either you have overeaten or you have been working under a nervous strain. For food will not properly digest when you go to your meals with nerves on edge.

“There isn’t anything serious about this form of indigestion and the simplest sort of treatment should bring immediate relief.

“For years I always recommended the use of pepsin in such cases until, in later years, when I had put pepsin into chewing gum, I suggested to my patients that they chew a stick of Beeman’s Original Pepsin Gum for ten minutes after each meal.

“Pepsin is good for stomach ailments, while the chewing of the gum acts as a nerve tonic.”
