The Facts About Peruna.
Ia Perona an alcoholic beverage in disguise? Is it possible to use Peruua
as a substitute for whiskey? Do people buy Peruua and use it as a toddy, or
a bitters, or a bracer?
It would be the easiest thing in the world for any one to demonstrate the
falsity of such statements. Let any one go to the drug store and purchase a bot
tle of Peruna. Let him undertake to use it as a beverage, or take this remedy in
doses considerably larger than those prescribed on the bottle. Would the result
be alcoholic intoxication? Nothing of the sort Let any one try it and see.
- Peruna is a medical compound quite heavily loaded with medicinal ingred
ients. If taken in doses larger than prescribed it would produce a positive
drug effect. No one could take it as a beverage. If any one doubts these state
ments, try it and see. . We know that Peruna cannot be used as a bever
age; that it will not intoxicate; that it cannot be used as a substitute for
liquors. We guarantee that PERTJNA CONTAINS NO CHEAP WHISKEY
OB ANY OTHER WHISKEY, for that matter.
It contains a small per cent of cologne spirits, absolutely essential to dis
solve and hold in solution medicinal ingredients, but the drugs contained in
Peruna prohibit its use as a beverage. It would be the easiest thing in tho
world for any one to demonstrate this if they chose to do so.
Peruna is sold everywhere. THE INGREDIENTS AEE PLAINLY
PRINTED ON EACH BOTTLE. It has been said over and over again that
chemists have analyzed Peruna and found it to contain only cubebs and
whiskey. Now we challenge any chemist to demonstrate any such statement
Let any one who has even a smattering knowledge of chemistry purchase a
bottle of Peruna and see whether or not it contains whiskey, find out for him
self whether or not it is composed of cheap whiskey and cubebs. Of course,
cubebs is one of the ingredients of Peruna, but there are many other ingred
ients. It contains hydrastis canadensis, corydalis formcsa, collinsonia, and at
least four other medicinal ingredients. To be sure, no che'mist could so ana
lyze Peruna as to be able to identify the various medicinal ingredients. This
is beyond the ability of any chemist But any ordinary chemist would be able
to say that Peruna is heavily loaded with medicinal ingredients of some kind
in addition to cubebs. .
Now why are these statements repeated when their falsity could be so
easily demonstrated? Simply because there is continued hostility toward Pe
' runa on the part of the medical profession. Very likely the magazines which
took up the crusade against Peruna and denounced it as a cheap beverage
were misled by statements of the medical profession. Probablv thev were
sincere in their attitude towards it But now, after all these things have been yZi Tw"here they SvTSS
said and refuted, it would seem to be inorder for such people to use a little 4 home purchased
