Slippery Elm is related to the American Elm (Ulmus americana) and is sometimes also called Red, Gras, or Moose Elm. It can reach up to sixty feet in height and is native from Quebec to Florida and extends west to the Dakotas and Texas. Slippery elm is mucilaginous and therefore a very good demulcent. Anywhere that it is necessary to add moisture or soothe irritated tissue Slippery Elm is indicated. It can be found in many natural throat lozenges. It can be used as a powder mixed into water, as a tea or infusion, in capsules, topically as a poultice, and as a liquid extract. It has been used to address digestive disturbances where it acts as a gentle supportive agent to the intestines and promotes healthy mucosal tissue.
