I have a bottle of this product. At the time of finding this rarity in the late 1980's, its contents were still liquid; a fact that I prized. I had not seen such a bottle since childhood, it existing only in my memory. I recall my Grandmother's administering it often. I loved the taste, and given the opportunity ! would have drunk the entire bottle! The example I have bears a label, said to have been adopted in 1939, and differs from the one shown. I have often mentioned this product to others, and have yet to meet anyone acquainted with it. I am 78 years old and in excellent health. Possibly even due to my grandmother having given me this marvelous elixer.
