Slippery Elm Bark Powder Organic

Inulin

Description

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, heartburn and reflux.

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

In a study on irritable bowel syndrome predominated by constipation and indigestion, an herbal preparation constituting slippery elm was given to the subjects and after consumption of the drug, patients had significant improvement in their bowel movements and indigestion associated bloating.

Slippery elm bark is rich in a viscous gel-like substance called mucilage which is made up of several polysaccharides including fructose, rhamnose, galactose, and galacturonic acid.

These polysaccharides are extensively linked with each other through chemical bonds and are highly branched, which give the mucilage, its slippery texture.

The major symptoms of heartburn such as pain, inflammation, and ulceration arise due to the erosion of the stomach mucous layer, causing the gut wall lining to get exposed to the acid, getting extensively damaged.

The bark of slippery elm contains ample amounts of mucilage which resemble in function, with the mucus layer of the stomach.

Indigestion is one of the primary causes of heartburn, in which lack of proper breakdown of food leads to the longer retention time of food in the stomach and excessive acid production, making the sphincter vulnerable to relaxation and allowing the acid to flow back up.

Traditionally Slippery Elm Powder was used to create balms for skin conditions such as wounds, ulcers and psoriasis.
