Henry Blooms Slippery Elm 375mg
$19.95 – $40.95
Slippery Elm Bark is a convenient way to settle an acidic or irritated stomach. It can alleviate heartburn by coating and ‘soothing’ the irritated upper gastrointestinal tract and reduces the symptoms of indigestion, constipation and diarrhea.
Blooms Slippery Elm Bark powder is a traditional ‘mucilaginous’ remedy which has a soothing effect on the digestive system and may help to soothe an irritated or unsettled stomach and gastrointestinal tract. Mucilage is a complex mixture of polysaccharides extracted as a viscous or gelatinous fibre.
Slippery Elm is considered a bulk laxative as the mucilage absorbs water. The result of this is that it swells in the intestine, helping to initiate a bowel movement. It is important to drink plenty of water, especially if using it for this effect. Slippery Elm Bark can also be used as a soothing demulcent to the digestive tract and can relieve both constipation and diarrhoea.
