Sun and fresh air are great condition
ers—but not all of us have the time or
opportunity for gardening and out
door activities. That’s why we need
iron to enrich the blood and yeast to
furnish the "B” vitamins which aid in
elimination and clearing the blood.
Both of these tonic ingredients are
combined in
NYAL IRON & YEAST TABLETS
—which supply energy, increase the
appetite and aid digestion.
