Slippery Elm (Ulmus fulva) is a small North American tree that has been used for centuries to help conditions both internally and externally. Native North Americans applied slippery elm topically on burns, wounds, boils or any skin inflammation, and was also taken orally to relieve sore throats, coughs, diarrhea, and stomach problems. It was also used by native North Americans and early settlers as a survival food.  

When Slippery Elm combines with water, it produces a gel-like substance. This substance works to soothe the entire gastrointestinal (GI) tract starting in the mouth and throat and continuing to the stomach and the intestines. The nerve endings in the GI tract are stimulated by Slippery Elm to secrete more mucus. This extra mucus works against ulcers and any excess acidity. The demulcent properties and antioxidants in Slippery Elm also help relieve gastritis and inflammatory bowel conditions.
