Slippery Elm; its benefits stretch back a very long way, with the Native American Indians being the first recorded people to use Slippery Elm as a medicine.
There are a number of actions that contribute to Slippery Elm being a very useful herbal remedy for bowel complaints. The effects the bark has on the body in various applications are thought to be demulcent, emollient, nutrient, bulk laxative & prebiotic. The fibrous gel that is secreted by the bark has a very soothing effect on the bowel & throat, it expands, coats these areas of the body, cooling inflamed membranes. Modern herbalism imparts the properties for Slippery Elm as being a good remedy for IBS, gastro-oesophageal reflux, diarrhoea, constipation, haemorrhoids & inflammation of the respiratory tract.
