Af? ter twenty years o| experimenting they succeeded in separating the me? dicinal curatives from the useless oil and grease and have given to the world in a concentrated form, all ot the healing, strength-creating and bodybuilding properties of cod liver oil, without oil or grease to up?.t th<- stomach and retard its work, and by this process Vino) is made.
