Slippery Elm Facts:
Of all the herbs used therapeutically, Slippery Elm Bark is one of the most well-known and frequently used. The slippery elm is a medium-sized tree native to North America. In order to be used for therapeutic purposes, the inner bark is dried and powdered. This inner bark has a unique coating property that produces a thick mucous. The mucous creates a protective lining along the intestinal tract promoting a healthier digestive process and soothe irritation.
May help both Constipation and Diarrhoea:
Slippery Elm is considered a bulk laxative as the mucilage absorbs water. The result of this is that it swells in the intestine, assisting to initiate bowel movement. It is important to drink plenty of water, especially if using it for this effect. Slippery Elm Bark may also be used as a soothing demulcent to the digestive tract and may relieve both constipation and diarrhoea.
