What is Slippery Elm?
Slippery elm, or Ulmus rubra, is a tree native to North America. The tree is known for its reddish-brown bark and its immense size, with heights often surpassing 80 feet. Slippery elm bark is known to have many potential benefits, which is why Native Americans have been using this herbal supplement for centuries. The tree’s soft inner bark is the part used in herbal medicine. The inner bark gives the tree its unusual name, as it has a smooth, slippery texture that becomes extremely gooey and thick when it is mixed with water. Due to this thick consistency, it is crucial that slippery elm supplements be taken with water or other fluids. Slippery elm is also known as red elm or Indian elm.

Slippery Elm Benefits
For centuries, Native Americans have used the tree’s slimy, red inner bark as a remedy for many common ailments, including fevers and sore throats, to just name a few. This is because slippery elm bark is a demulcent, a mucoprotective agent that is capable of relieving irritation of the mucous membranes by forming a protective film known as mucilage. This protective film is able to aid with many symptoms, so it’s no surprise that it was also used by American soldiers to treat gunshot wounds during the American Revolution. Today, slippery elm products are commonly used to help with intestinal health and throat health, as mucilage may be able to soothe irritation and swelling. That is why slippery elm is a common ingredient in various commercial brands of cough drops and throat lozenges. Overall, slippery elm may:
● Soothe sore throats
● Strengthen digestive tract
● Help absorb toxins
● Promote intestinal health
● Help with a leaky gut
