Nuxated Iron Makes Strong,
Vigorous, Iron Men and Beautiful
Healthy Rosy Cheeked Women
Dr. Howard James, late of the
Manhattan State Hospital of New
York, and formerly Assistant Physi
cian, Brooklyn State Hospital, says:
"Iron is absolutely necessary to enable
your blood to change food into living: tisaue.
Without it, no matter how much or what
you eat, your food merely pasiea thrugh
you without doing you any good. You don't
get the strength out of it, and as a conse
quence you become weak, pale and sickly
looking, just like a plant trying to grow in
a soil deficient in iron. A patient of mine
remarked to me (after having been on a six
weeks course of Nuxated Iron): 'Say, Doc
tor, that there stuff is like magic'
"If you are not strong or well you owe
it to yourself to make the following test:
See how long you can work or how far you
can walk without becoming tired. Next take
two five-grain tablets' of nuxated iron three
timer per day after meals for two weeks.
Then test your strength again and see how
much you have gained. From my own ex
perience with Nuxsted Iron', I feel It is such
a valuable remedy that it should be kept in
