About Slippery Elm

Slippery Elm is a herb and is used due to its many benefits. It comes in handy as a demulcent, emollient, expectorant, diuretic and nutritive as listed below:

The health benefits of slippery elm are rooted mainly in its soothing properties. It is thus effectively used as a mucilaginous herb internally to coat and soothe mucous membranes while also absorbing toxins which can cause intestinal imbalances. Slippery elm is an effective remedy for duodenal ulcers, gastritis, diarrhoea, colitis, irritable bowel syndrome, haemorrhoids and heartburn. The Cherokee have used the viscous inner bark of the slippery elm to prepare a healing salve, and in herbal medicine it is used as one of the best possible poultices for wounds, boils, ulcers, burns and all inflamed surfaces, soothing, healing and reducing pain and inflammation. The benefits of slippery elm also extend to being a simple food. As part of a normal diet, slippery elm's inner bark can be ground and eaten as porridge. It is very nutritious and packed with antioxidants, with a similar taste and consistency to oatmeal. It also makes a wholesome and sustaining food for invalids and infants. Basic Slippery Elm food eaten as a hot cereal is made by first making a gruel out of 1 tsp powdered inner bark and cold water, then thinning the gruel with about a 1 1/2 to 2 cups more of hot water, whisking ingredients into a smooth porridge. The porridge may be seasoned with cinnamon, nutmeg, vanilla, lemon rind, etc. and may be sweetened with pure maple syrup, honey, agave, stevia, etc.
