Research Facts
Active principle of Cod Liver Oil is extracted and it can act by inducing Hyperalimentation; Clinical experiments in the Paris Hospitals show that Creosote combined with Morrhuol gives the happiest results where there is tuberculosis with corresponding defective nutrition; Pure Creosote with Morrhuol will considerably assist assimilation of the Creosote.
