Prickly Ash Bitters is a kidney remedy of the greatest merit; it is soothing, healing and strengthening, quickly re lieves the aching or soreness that always appears in advanced stages, checks the progress of the disease and through its excellent cleansing and regulating effect in the stomach, liver and bowels, it brings back the strength and ruddy glow of vigorous health.
