Put a halt to the intense painful stinging sensations of heartburn and acid reflux with a cup of slippery elm powder tea. The tea will coat the mucous membranes of the esophagus or tube from the mouth to the stomach. Similarly, slippery elm powder has the same protective effects on the larynx and intestines making it a helpful remedy for inflammatory bowel disease and infections of the throat.
Slippery elm has been used for centuries as an herbal remedy to heal wounds, ulcers, burns and skin inflammation. It was also used orally to relieve coughs, sore throats, diarrhea and stomach issues. It contains mucilage, a substance that when mixed with water becomes a slick gel. This mucilage coats and soothes the mouth, throat, stomach and intestines to help with digestive issues. It has been known to help alleviate conditions such as colic, inflammation of the gut, constipation, hemorrhoids, diverticulitis, and irritable bowel syndrome.
