Slippery Elm 400 mg - 100 Caps (Code 4750)

  NOW Slippery Elm is a high quality, non-irradiated, and effective medicinal herb. The health benefits of slippery elm are mainly in its soothing properties. It is effectively used as a mucilaginous herb internally to coat and soothe mucous membranes while also absorbing toxins which can cause intestinal imbalances.

Slippery elm is an effective remedy for many conditions, such as duodenal ulcers, gastritis, diarrhea, colitis,irritable bowel syndrome, hemorrhoids and heartburn. It is popular in cough drops to soothe sore throats and relieve coughs.

Slippery Elm contains a substance called mucilage, which is a polysaccharide that becomes a gel when mixed with water. The mucilage comes from the inner bark of the tree and is a bit slippery and slimy, and that  is why it is called Slippery Elm.

This mucilage does a great job of soothing and coating the mouth, throat, stomach, and intestines, offering relief from things like Gastroesophogeal Reflux Disease (GERT), Crohn’s Disease, ulcerative colitis, diarrhea, diverticulitis, and Irritable Bowel Syndrome, and other illnesses.
