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. Mix 1 tsp with water and drink.
