Eat less meat if Kidneys feel like lead
or Bladder bothers you—Meat
forms uric acid.
Most folks forget that the kidneys,
like the bowels, get sluggish and clogged
and need a flushing occasionally, else we
have backache and dull misery in the
kidney region, severe headaches, rheu
matic twinges, torpid liver, acia stomach,
sleeplessness and all sorts of bladder die
You simply must keep your kidneys
active and clean, and the moment you
feel an ache or pain in the kidney
region, get about four ounces of Jad
Salts from any good drug store here,
take a tablespoonful in a glass of water j
before breakfast for a few days and
your kidneys will then act fine. This
famous salts is made from the acid of
grapes and lemon juice, combined with
litbia, and is harmless to flush clogged
kidneys and stimulate them to normal
activity. It also neutralizes the acids
in the urine so it no longer irritates,
thus ending bladder disorders.
Jad Salts is harmless; inexpensive;
makes a delightful effervescent lithia
water drink which everybody should take
now and then to keep their kidneys clean,
tfcus avoiding serious complications.
A well-known local druggist says he
■ells lots of Jad 8&Hs to folks who believe
in overcoming kidney trouble while it is
only trouble.
