Take Halt at First Slgrt of
Bladder Irritation or
The American mun and women mnst
guard constantly agulmit kidney
trouble because we often eat too much
rich food. Our blood Is filled with
m ill which the kidney strive to .
filter out; they weaken from over
work, become sluggish, th ellmlnn
tlvo tissues clog nnd the result I kid
ney trouble, bladder weakness and
a general decline In health.
When your kidneys feel like lump
of lead; your back hurts or the nrln.
Is cloudy, full of sediment, or yon are
obliged trt geek relief two or thren
time during the night; If yon suffer
with sbk headache, or dizzy, nervon
spells, acid stomach, or If yon have
rheumatism when the weather I bad,
begin drinking lot of good soft water
and get from your phnrmncbit about
four ounces of Jnd Salts. Take 1
tablesnoonful In a glans of water be
fore breakfast for a few days and
ynnr kidney may then act fine.
This famous, salts Is mad from the
acid of grape and lemon Juice, com
bined with llthla, and ha been nsed
for yenrs to help flush and stimulate
clogged kidneys, to nentrallr. the
acids In the system so they no longer
nre a source of Irritation, thus often
relieving bladder disorders.
Jad Salt Is Inexpensive, cannot In
jur, make a delightful effervescent
lltlda-water (lrlnk nnd belong In every
home, because nobody can make a
mistake by having a good kidney
flushing any time.
