Slippery Elm Info
Slippery elm is the common name of the Ulmus fulva tree native to North America, where it has been used medicinally for centuries.
The inner bark of the tree contains mucilage, an easily digestible polysaccharide that is slippery when combined with water. Powdered for use as a supplement, it is a soothing and nutritious food during convalescence.
Slippery Elm Benefits
Sensitive and irritated mucous membranes of the throat, stomach, intestines and urinary tract are protected and soothed by the mucilaginous properties of slippery elm. For heartburn it provides a barrier to acid reflux damage, as well as an anti-inflammatory effect in the stomach and intestines.
Constipation, diarrhoea and flatulence are eased through its lubricating, emollient and laxative effects. It is safe for children and elderly people, easing digestive discomfort and promoting normal elimination while absorbing toxins from the bowel.
Slippery elm contains high levels of several essential minerals and vitamin E, giving it important antioxidant properties. Externally slippery elm can be applied to the skin as a poultice to draw out harmful toxins.
Slippery Elm Side Effects
I have issue's with diverticulitus and reflux acid this has now helped ease the problems. I notice that if I decide not to take for a few days the problems will develop again and so immediately include in my daily regime, also the bloating will ease and bowels will work more effectively. The powder does initially take abit of getting used too but it is well worth the effort to get the relief. Highly recommend.
