Slippery Elm

Slippery Elm (Ulmus rubra synonym Ulmus fulva) is indigenous to North America. The dried inner bark rind can be used medicinally. The mucilages are considered the principal constituent. They are responsible for the plants demulcent and emollient effects. The tannin constituents have astringent properties. Slippery Elm can cause reflex stimulation of nerve endings in the gastrointestinal tract that lead to mucous secretion. This action may help protect the GI tract from ulcers. It forms a slippery, viscous coating that soothes irritation in the throat and the lining of the stomach. Its water-retaining properties also make it an ideal ingredient for a soothing compress.

Slippery Elm has been in used for many years. It is a popular remedy for stomach inflammation, ulcers, and sore throat. Applied to the skin, it can be used as a treatment for wounds, burns, and skin conditions.
