Slippery Elm is a very common herbal remedy to help with digestive complaints. It can be taken in tablet form and also as a powder which si then mixed with water. It forms a gel consistency which then puts a protective mucilaginous lining over the stomach and also the gullet.
This helps soothe any inflammation in the gullet or the stomach and allows healing to take place in the stomach area. This is particularly useful if vomiting has occurred.
It can also be taken as a gentle bulking laxative remedy. Paradoxically, it can also help over activity in the bowel, particularly after diahorrea. Some people find it useful for treating Irritable Bowel Syndrome.
It is very gentle and can be taken as often as required for stomach problems.
The powder form can be extremely bitter and hard to swallow, so many people prefer to take it in tablet form which is much easier to take.
