Slippery Elm Bark Powder 100g
When Slippery Elm Bark Powder is mixed with water, it generates a sticky material known as mucilage, which is therapeutic and soothing to anything it touches. Slippery Elm can be used to treat a number of conditions:
Inflammatory Bowel Disease (IBD) - Slippery Elm is a demulcent, which means that it is capable of soothing the lining of the stomach and intestines and reducing irritation.
Soothing a Cough or Sore Throat - Slippery Elm contains mucilage, a sticky mixture of sugars that can't be broken down by the human digestive tract. The mucilage coats the throat, so it is no surprise that is found commercially in many brand of throat lozenges.
Heartburn and GERD - Slippery Elm may be helpful in treating occasional heartburn, also known as acid reflux. It's also considered a herbal remedy for Gastroesophageal Reflux Disease (GERD). GERD is a chronic disease that occurs when stomach acid flows back into the oesophagus and irritates the lining. The mucilage of Slippery Elm coats the oesophagus and may help prevent the irritation of the lining that occurs when the acid flows back up.
