A few months ago, a man in no way connected with the making: of Postum or the marketing of coffee, wrote to
quite a number of physicians all over the country asking their unbiased testimony in the case of Postum vs. Coffee.
The following excerpts from their letters constitute an overwhelming verdict:
In Favor of Postum
"I have discarded coffee altogether
in my family, and Instead use Postum
which we find makes a rich, delicious
drink, without any of the deleterious
effects attendant on the continuous
nee of cofTee."
"Our family have been users of Pos
tum for a long time. We were very
liberal coffee drinkers, but were con
scious that coffee was harming us
our nervous system, digestion and
heart action so we quit the coffee
and began using Postum. Now we
relish It far more than we did coffee,
and are all relieved of the old cogee
troubles. As a physician I have In
duced several families to quit coffee
and use Postum."
"Pot ram when -It Is desirable to
leave off coffee on acount of over
stimulation cr gastric disturbances.'
"Postum has txen nsed In my fam
ITy nearly ever since It was placed
on the market, and I recommend it to
my patients. It Is a nourishing drink.
A great many families are giving their
children Postnm in place of coffee
with best of results."
"I have used Postum In my family
for years with the most satisfactory
result so much so that we have prac
tically abolished coffee, and with it
the coffee headaches, nervousness,
and lying awske the best part of the
"I drink Postum every morning and
recommend it to my friends who have
'nerves and Indigestion.'
"No more coffee for me. I am using
Instant Postum and advise my pa
tients to do likewise. I prefer It to
the beet coffee, and have no more
sour stomach attacks as I used to."
"For years I have been using Pos
tum in my family and advocating it
for my patients. I consider it to be
exactly what Its manufacturers claim
for It. Postum Is excellent In place of
coffee where the latter is contraindl
cated. The food value of Postum
plays an Important part when compar
ed wjth coffee."
"Have had many cases that could
not drink coffee on account of Us re
flex action on the heart. Postum al
ways supplies the place of coffee
without the bad effects."
"I have used Postum for the past,
eight years In place of coffee. Before
that I was troubled with frequent bil
ious headaches due to excessive use
of coffee, and was then advised to use
Postum. Since that time I have not
had a single attack, which effect I at
tribute entirely to Postum. I frequent
ly recommend it to others who exper
ience equally gratifying results."
"Hardly a week goes by that I do
not advise some patient with an irrita
ble, acid stomach and nervous heart
to stop at once the use of all coffee
and take up the use of Postum. and
always with good results."
"I am satisfied that coffee is respon
sible In a great degree ton the prema
ture breakdown of our active men and
women. They suffer from caffeine
poisoning. Of the truth of this there
is not the shadow of a doubt. Our
common sense telle us that the daily
swallowing of caffeine over-stimulating
the heart and. brain will be fol
lowed by nervous depression, and
finally by more or less disastrous re
sults. I believe if people In general
jrould use Postum as a beverage In
place of coffee and tea their mental
and physical condition would be much
In the light of such testimony it would seem the part of wisdom to stop coffee and use Postum.
Postum is a genuine food-drink, made of whole wheat and a small percent of molasses. Contains tha nutritious
values of the grain, but is pure and absolutely free from the coffee drug, caffeine, or any other harmful substance.
Postnm comes in two forms: '
Eegnlar Postum--must be well boiled to bring out its fine flavor. 1 Be and 25c packages.
Instant Postnm a soluble form. A teaspoonful stirred in a cup of hot water with sugar and croam added
makes a delightful beverage instantly. 30c and 50c tins. The cost per cup of both kinds is about the same.
