Background and Use
The Slippery Elm tree is native to eastern Canada and the eastern and central United States, where it is found mostly in the Appalachian Mountains. Its name refers to the soothing slippery consistency that the inner bark assumes when it is chewed or mixed with water. Native American healers have used the dried inner bark of Slippery Elm trees for centuries, internally and externally.
From 1820 to 1960, the bark was listed in the U.S. Pharmacopoeia as a demulcent, emollient and antitussive. Slippery Elm has been used in Ayurvedic and Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) for gastrointestinal symptoms.
Presently the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) recognizes Slippery Elm as a safe and effective option for sore throat and respiratory irritation due to coughs.
This extract has been carefully hand-crafted using premium quality Slippery Elm bark and organic alcohol to retain all the active constituents that are naturally present in this plant. The bark is immediately processed into the extract to ensure maximum levels of valuable constituents.
