A PURE WHITE MINERAL OIL
Youn Doctor Prescribes It
THE hi fhet medical authorities everywhere now endorse pure
mineral oil as a remedy for constipation.
Nujol conforms to the requirements of the mineral oil treatment a
prescribed by its discoverer, Sir William Afbuthnot Lane. It givet
permanent, not temporary, relief from constipation, with none of tha
harmful after-effects of laxative drugs.
Nujol Is odorless and tasteless, absolutely neutral, and is not digestea
or absorbed into the system. It acts merely as mechanical lubricant.
Nujol is not a drug. Its use will not give quick, temporary relief.
But Nujol is a genuine remedy in that it relieves constipation in the
most natural way by lubricating the lining of the intestines, softening
the intestinal contents, and thus promoting healthy and normal bowel
