Slippery elm bark (Ulmus rubra) has been used for centuries as a gentle and effective remedy for irritated states of the mucous membranes of the chest, urinary tubules, stomach and intestines. When the herb comes in contact with inflamed surfaces such as the intestinal membranes, it soothes and coats the irritated issue and protects it from injury. It has been known to help alleviate conditions such as colic, inflammation of the gut, constipation, hemorrhoids, diverticulitis, and irritable bowel syndrome. Mix 1 tsp with 1 cup boiling water and infuse for 6-10 minutes. CAFFEINE FREE
