Slippery Elm Bark Powder
What is Slippery Elm Bark Powder?
Slippery elm, or Ulmus rubra, is a tree native to the central and eastern United States and Ontario, Canada. Slippery elm bark was later picked up by American soldiers to heal gunshot wounds during the American Revolution. Slippery elm is also called red elm or Indian elm. Traditionally, the powder was used in salving to treat minor skin conditions, wounds, and irritation.
Slippery Elm Bark Powder Benefits:
Slippery elm bark powder can help treat the symptoms associated with inflammatory bowel diseases like Crohn’s disease, ulcerative colitis, and irritable bowel syndrome (IBS). Slippery elm contains mucilage, a sticky mixture of sugars that can’t be broken down by the human digestive tract. It might help alleviate the painful irritating symptoms. It also helps increase the flow of urine and eliminate waste from the body. It’s also considered an herbal remedy for gastroesophageal reflux disease (GERD).
