Slippery elm bark is a medicinal herb derived from the slippery elm tree. It has been used for centuries in traditional medicine to treat a variety of ailments including digestive issues, sore throats, coughs and even skin conditions.
The main reason it works so well is that it contains high levels of mucilage - a slimy substance which works to coat the throat, stomach and intestines providing instant relief from pain and discomfort. Slippery elm bark has also been found to have anti-inflammatory properties making it an effective treatment for arthritis, ulcerative colitis and other inflammatory conditions.
Additionally, its antioxidant content helps prevent damage caused by free radicals reducing the risk of developing some cancers.
