What is Slippery Elm?
Slippery Elm (Ulmus rubra), also known as Red Elm or Moose Elm, is a medium-sized tree native to North America that can reach a height of 50 feet. Its spreading branches form an attractive open crown, and its deeply fissured bark has a gummy texture and slight odor. Its reddish-brown heartwood has long been dried and powdered to be used in wellness traditions in North America.
The Native Americans once used slippery elm to create teas and tinctures to support respiratory and gastrointestinal wellness and comfort.** One interesting story tells of the American Revolutionary War soldiers during the winter battle of Valley Forge who were able to survive the harsh conditions by eating a gruel made from slippery elm bark.
Slippery Elm Bark Supplements
Slippery Elm naturally contains antioxidants as well as a substance called mucilage, which becomes a thick gel when wet. When ingested, this substance coats and soothes the mouth, throat, stomach, and digestive tract, which is why this herbal tradition has long been found as lozenges and teas to support respiratory and gastrointestinal wellness and comfort.**
Piping Rock offers this Native American herbal tradition in easy-to-swallow quick-release capsules. Each serving delivers 400 mg of top-quality slippery elm bark, helping to support your herbal supplement regimen with this gift from Mother Nature.
