Slippery Elm is a soothing herb that's consumed in many forms, including in lozenges and liquid extracts, often as a 'demulcent,' to calm irritation of the stomach and help relieve gastritis and diarrhea. It not only provides a mucus-like substance itself (it's a mucilage, something that becomes a slick gel when mixed with water) to coat the stomach and intestines and supplies antioxidants that can help relieve inflammatory bowel conditions, but it also stimulates nerve endings in the gastrointestinal tract to increase mucus secretion there, which can protect the GI tract from excessive acid.
Product Notes:Also known as Red, Moose, or Indian Elm, Slippery Elm (Ulmus fulva) is a small tree native to North America. Its inner bark rind has been part of traditional herbal medicine for well over a century, and was used by North Americans and early settlers as a survival food.
