Slippery Elm Bark is a traditional herbal remedy with a century's long history of use. The lubricating qualities of this natural medicine help support digestive health.
Herbalists attribute many wonderful healing properties to slippery elm: demulcent (soothing, mucilage-forming), emollient (soothing and protective for skin), nutritive (providing specific food nutrients), tonic (promoting healthy function of one or more body systems) and astringent (constricting, binding or drying effect). It also possesses antioxidant and anti-inflammatory properties. Internally, the mucilage softly coats irritated, inflamed or damaged tissues, forming a protective barrier.
