FEATURES AND BENEFITS
- Soothes throat, stomach and digestive irritation.
Thompsons Slippery Elm is a soothing herb renowned for its ability to soothe sensitive and inflamed mucous membrane linings of the stomach and bowel and all other complaints involving mucosal surface irritation. .
Traditionally, slippery elm is used orally for protecting against stomach and duodenal ulcers, acidity, irritable bowel syndrome (IBS). It is also used for coughs, sore throat, colic, diarrhea, constipation and urinary inflammation.
The mucilage of the inner bark are responsible for slippery elm's demulcent and emollient effects. Taken internally, slippery elm causes reflex stimulation of nerve endings in the gastro-intestinal (GI) tract, leading to mucous secretion. This induced mucous may protect the GI tract against ulcers and excess acidity. In people with heartburn, the mucilage appears to act as a barrier against the damaging effects of acid on the oesophagus.
