Product Description

Slippery elm is a species of elm native to eastern North America. Slippery elm is also known as Ulmus fulva, red elm, sweet elm, Indian elm, and moose elm. Slippery elm is a medium-sized tree growing over 50 feet in height and is topped by spreading branches that form an open crown. Its exterior bark is dark brown, rough, and fissured.

Slippery elm acts as a demulcent, emollient, expectorant, and diuretic. Slippery elm neutralizes stomach acids, boosts the adrenal glands, draws out impurities and heals all parts of the body. Mucilage in the inner bark pf slippery elm coats the mouth, esophagus, and gastrointestinal tract with a slick residue. Slippery elm soothes the inflammation of ulcers in the stomach and duodenum and provides a protective barrier between the ulcer and damaging stomach acid. Slippery elm soothes irritation or ulceration of the stomach and intestines and is useful for treating gastrointestinal conditions. It may soothe a sore throat, help to alleviate the pain of colic or stomach ulcers, and relieve inflammatory bowel conditions. It aids digestion and helps cleanse the colon. Slippery elm is also a soothing and nutritive tonic benefiting the adrenal glands, the respiratory system, and the gastrointestinal tract. Slippery elm is particularly effective for easing a cough and soothing a sore throat, coating the area and reducing irritation. Topically, elm may be applied to the skin surface to relieve minor injuries such as burns, cold sores, razor burn, scrapes, and sunburn. Slippery elm has been used to treat chest conditions.
