I • Backache, loss of pep, getting up nights,
and headache are often caused by nothing
more than improper kidney action due to
excess acid in the urine. Kidneys are one
of Nature's ways of removing impurities
from the blood. And when these impurities
back up, trouble may start.
So if you have these troubles, give your
kidneys and bladder a good flushing out
by taking Dr. Kilmer's Swamp-Root. It
works on the kidneys to flush them out,
increasing the flow of urine to help relieve
that excess acidity and ease that burning
when you pass water, helps that bladder
irritation that gets you up nights.
Made of fl5 herbs, roots, vegetables, and
balsams, Swamp-Root is absolutely non-
habit forming. Caution: take as directed.
