Slippery Elm has been used as a traditional medicine since the 19th century in North America. And it's still in use today—obviously—due to the miraculous power of this powder, extracted from the inner bark of the slippery elm tree. And it all boils down to one simple substance—mucilage. This is a specialised polysaccharide that has powerful protective and regeneration-supportive properties, making Herbs of Gold Slippery Elm 400mg useful for the management of a number of common maladies.
One of the most beneficial ways to use slippery elm powder is for the management of heartburn. This condition can occur when the stomach or lower oesophagus become inflammed and irritated, leading to pain on eating, as food causes the secretion of the highly acidic hydrochloric acid. In part, this may also be caused by a weakened gastroesophageal sphincter.
This sphincter regulates the flow of food, which should only travel downwards—unless we need to vomit—but when weakened can allow food, laced with hydrochloric acid from the stomach, back up into the oesophagus, and sometimes all the way up into the mouth where the mucosa is not thick nor designed to handle the harsh acidic environment of the stomach. Hence, the burning pain.
Slippery elm, as contained within Herbs of Gold Slippery Elm, can provide mucilage to coat and protect the inflammed tissue of the oesophagus and stomach, allowing it time to regenerate and heal. Ideally, it shoud be taken at regular intervals, over an extended period of time, not just symptomatically.
Slippery Elm Powder can also be used to assist in the management of other conditions, such as irritable bowel sydrome, gastritis and crohn's disease. Furthermore, it is believed that there is also a reflex demulcency effect, which, through neural innervation, may trigger a protective effect in the lungs as well. In this case, it may be used for a persistent dry cough.
Herbs of Gold Slippery Elm is a fantastic product, containing an underrated plant extract that can be particularly helpful for gastrointestinal issues, as well as supporting lung health.
