RELIEVES PAIN AND STRESS: It has an aspirin-like action and is helpful in relieving fevers and soothing pain such as headaches. Its anti-allergenic effect is very useful for hay fever, allergic rhinitis, conjunctivitis and bronchial asthma.

It should be thought of during times of both physical and emotional stress, after surgery or during convalescence, or when feeling tired and run down.
