Slippery Elm [Digestive, Intestinal] is also known by the names Red Elm, Moose Elm and Indian Elm. It may help to relieve occasional digestive discomfort and provides mucilage, which may soothe the throat and digestive tract.
Mucilage is an easily digestible long chain of sugars (polysaccharides) that make a slippery substance when combined with water. Historically, early American settlers used slippery elm as a survival food; George Washington and his troops survived for several days on slippery elm gruel during the bitter winter at Valley Forge.
It may also be used externally as a poultice for the skin. Each capsule contains 360 mg slippery elm bark.
Adults: Take 2 capsules with a meal twice daily.
Bulk: Mix 1 or 2 heaping teaspoon(s) in 8 oz. of pure water or juice.
