Health Information

Slippery Elm

(Ulmus fulva)

Description

Herbalists recommend slippery elm to be used externally to ease wounds and skin problems, and internally to soothe sore throats, coughing, and diarrhoea and other gastrointestinal disorders. 

Slippery elm's active ingredient is found in the white inner bark, whose mucilaginous cells expand into a spongy consistency when mixed with water. It is easily digested and particularly good for the young and the elderly to give them additional calcium. 

How It May Benefit You

Apply externally for: 

  • wounds, cuts, abrasions. 

Take internally for: 

  • coughing, sore throats, 

  • digestive complaints. 

  • gynaecological problems. 

WARNING:    Herbs should only be used under the supervision of an experienced herbalist or naturopath experienced in herbs.

Availability

Available as capsules, tea, powder.
