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

Contraindicated for any type of bowel obstruction Slippery elm may slow the absorption of medical drugs or other herbal medicines Safe when only the inner bark is used, however be aware of products substituting outer bark which is unsafe in pregnancy and may cause miscarriage or premature labour.

  • Great value for great health benefits!

    Bought this to try rather than the regular brand that we had been buying for a number of years. I am on my second pack now and I have been pleased with the quality and will continue to buy at the price per gram offered.
    I have had Slippery Elm in the house since our children were younger to treat all manner of things.
    As Slippery Elm is a contact healer, both externally and internally, I have used it sprinkled straight onto mouth ulcers; mixed it with juice or water to make a small 'pudding' for the children when they had either diarrhea OR constipation, as it acts to normalise the bowel function and heals the entire intestinal tract; I even put it straight onto babies bottom for nappy rash. My husband has been using Slippery Elm as a daily addition to his breakfast cereal since his 40's and has regular colonoscopies (with healthy results), as his father passed at the age of 40 from bowel cancer.
    Throwing it in a smoothie is a great way to get the benefits if you can't stand the texture of having it any other way.
    I highly recommend Slippery Elm in general, and am happy to recommend BioBalance Slippery Elm powder.
