Slippery Elm powder has been used to effectively reduce irritation along the digestive system. It is also a useful alternative to traditional ulcer drugs which may have a negative effect on your digestive system in the long run.
Slippery Elm powder contains mucilage, a substance that becomes a gel when it combines with liquid. It coats and soothes the intestines and contains antioxidants that help relieve inflammatory bowel conditions, which is what is believed to protect the gastrointestinal tract against ulcers and excess acidity.
Slippery Elm can benefit:
- sore throat
- gastric ulcers
- acid reflux
- intestinal irritation
- ulcerative colitis
100% pure Slippery Elm (Ulmus fulva) inner bark powder from trees grown in North America.
Slippery Elm Powder has no known side effects or toxicity even if it is used long-term. No adverse reactions have been reported if Slippery Elm is taken alongside other treatments – although it may slow down the absorption of other drugs or herbs because of the way it coats the digestive tract.
