The following cases are given as examples of malnutrition and faulty metabolism in which the nutrition was improved and the infant more satis- fied when the vitamine-containing food and vege- table juices were added to the dietary. The char- acter of the stool was changed within a few days from a greenish mucous stool to one of viagra tablet colour a yellowish pasty consistency.

One-half ounce of orange juice was given every morning, and a half-ounce spinach juice, made from freshly boiled spinach leaves, was given every evening.
