I have a bottle that once held Carlsbad Sprudel-Salts and matches the box you display. For indications it says ""For chronic catarrh of the stomach, liver complaint bile and simple jaundice. For temporary and chronic constipation 1 or 2 teaspoonfuls of the Salt dissolved in warm Carlsbad Sprudel Water before breakfast will produce regular evacuations, easy and free from pain."
