Slippery Elm is a deciduous tree native to the United States and Canada, and is also known by the names Red Elm, Moose Elm and Indian Elm. The inner bark of the slippery elm was used widely by the Native Americans and later by the early American settlers. In fact, a gruel made from slippery elm bark sustained George Washington's army during the bitter winter at Valley Forge. Slippery elm is rich in nutrients, easy to digest, and soothing to the digestive tract. For centuries people have used it to support the digestive system and to maintain regular waste elimination. It may also 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. It may also be used externally as a poultice for the skin. Each capsule contains 360 mg slippery elm bark. Take 2 capsules with a meal twice daily.
