Hollis Jaundice Bitters

<< >>
Description
The indications or uses for this product as provided on its packaging:
These bitters have been employed with uncommon advantage in jaundice, weakness of the stomach, and general debility. The effects are peculiarly invigorating on the stomach and bowels, and are beneficial in removing costiveness produced by weakness of the intestines; they strengthen the digestive organs, create an appetite and communicate vigor to the stomach, without producing head-ache, oppression, etc., which so many bitters usually bring on; they are gratefully aromatic, and mildly cathartic, and are particularly serviceable in removing urinal obstructions.
