The American men and women must
guard constantly against Kidney

and all our food is rich. Our blood is
filled with uric acid which the kidneys
strive to filter out, they weaken from
overwork, become sluggish; the ellmi

kidney trouble, bladder weakness and
a general decline in health.
When your kidneys feel like lumps
of lead; your back hurts or the urine
is cloudy, full of sediment or you are
obliged to seek relief two or three
times during the night; if you suffer
with sick headache or dizzy, nervous
spells, acid stomach, or you have rheu
matism when the weather is bad, get
from your pharmacist about four
ounces of Jad Salts; take a table
spoonful in a glass of water before
breakfast for a few days and your
kidneys will then act fine. This famous
Baits Is made from the acid of grapes
and lemon juice, combined with lithia,
and has been used for generations to
flush and stimulate clogged kidneys;
to neutralize the acids in the urine so
it no longer is a source of irritation,
thus ending bladder disorders.
Jad Salts is inexpensive; cannot In
jure, makes a delightful effervescent
lit.hla-water beverage, and belongs in
every home, because nobody can make
a mistake by having. a good kidney
flushing any time.—Advertisement
