Product Description

Slippery Elm Bark

A pleasant tasting way to settle an acidic or irritated stomach.

Blooms Slippery Elm bark powder is a traditional ‘mucilaginous’ remedy which has a soothing effect on the digestive system and may help to soothe an irritated or unsettled stomach and gastrointestinal tract. Mucilage is a complex mixture of polysaccharides extracted as a viscous or gelatinous fibre.

Slippery Elm is considered a bulk laxative as the mucilage absorbs water. The result of this is that it swells in the intestine, helping to initiate a bowel movement. It is important to drink plenty of water, especially if using it for this effect.

Slippery Elm bark can also be used as a soothing demulcent to the digestive tract and can relieve both constipation and diarrhoea.

Of all the herbs used medicinally, Slippery Elm bark is one of the most well-known and frequently used. The slippery elm is a medium-sized tree native to North America. In order to be used for medicinal purposes, the inner bark is dried and powdered.

In the 19th Century Elm Bark lozenges were recommended for professional singers with the advertorial, “Sing better with slippery elm” due to the soothing action of slippery elm on irritated mucous membranes.
