TAKE A GLASS OF SALTS
WHEN BLADDER BOTHERS
Harmless to Flush Kidneys and Neu
tralize Irritating Acids-Splendid
for the System.
Kidney and Bladder weakness result
from uric acid, says a noted authority.
The kidneys filter this acid from the
blood and pass it on to the bladder,
where it often remains to Irritate and
inflame, causing a burning, scalding
sensation, or setting up an irritation
at the neck of the bladder, obliging
you to seek relief two or three times
during the night. The sufferer is in
constant dread, the water passes
sometimes with a scalding sensation
and is very profuse; again, there is
difficulty in avoiding it.
Bladder weakness, most folks call
it, because they can't control urina
Bion. While it is extremely annoying
and sometimes very painful, this is
really one of the most simple ailments
to overcome. Get about four ounces
of Jad Salts from your pharmacist and
take a tablespoonful in a glass of
water before breakfast, continue this
for two or three days. This will neu
tralize the acids in the urine so it no
longer is a source of irritation to the
bladder and urinary organs which then
act normally again.
Jad Salts is inexpensive, harmless,
and is made from the acid of grapes
and lemon juice, combined with lithia,
and is used by thousands of folks who
are subject'to urinary disorders caused
by uric acid irritation. Jad Salts is
splendid for kidneys and causes no
bad effects whatever.
Here you have a pleasant, efferves
cent lithia-water drink, which quickly
relieves bladder trouble.-Adv.
