UNHAPPY WIVES FIND NEW HOPE
IN SPECIAL VITAMIN COMBINATION
Clinical Tests Demonstrate Sterile Women
May Be Aided—Happy Homes Are
Dependent on Babies
— „ * -.
Nothing equal* a baby to bring com
plete unitv and happiness into the home
and tie husband and wife into a stronger
bond of enduring love and mutual in
Many homes break up from lack of
children and contribute to the amazing
American record of one divorce for
every five marriages. Unhappy wives,
childless due to a vitamin-deficient finc
tional weakness, may now enjoy the de
sires and activities of Nature’s most
wonderful creation—a normal, fully-de
veloped. vigorous woman.
Sensational clinical tests demonstrate
that, in vitamin-deficient instances, a
new vitamin of the B Complex poop
has a striking effect on sterility. Twenty*
two women, with known sterility record*
for as much as five years were selected
for the test. After weeks of heavy dosage
with Paraaminobenzoic acid (a vhamia
of the B Complex group) more than
half of these women became mothers.
Many of these women had been told
their condition was hopeless. The vita
min is absolutely harmless and decided
ly beneficial to general health as well.
Thus it is apparent that highly forti
fied vitamin combination may be just
the thing needed by the childless wife
and quickly bring the happiness of a
baby into the home.
If you are childless and have even giv
en up hope, if you wish to eliminate one
of the greatest causes of unhappy mar
riages. by all means give the Perlex
Combination Vitamin System a short
trial in the privacy of your home. To
introduce this new vitamin combination
quickly to a million women, the Perlex
Company, 314 North Michigan Ave,
Chicago, Illinois, will send a regular
$2.00 supply for only $1.00 and a few
cents postage. \ou need send no money
—just your name and address. Perlex
comes in a plain wrapper—directions
are quite simple, and no special diet m
exercise is required.
