Slippery Elm (Ulmus Rubra) is an American deciduous tree, where it grows to over 50 feet tall.

The stem is covered with a dark-brown, rough, furrowed outer bark and a whitish, aromatic inner bark. It is the inner bark (not the whole bark) that is used medicinally.

When Slippery Elm bark comes into contact with liquids it begins to turn the liquid into a gel, which has numerous medicinal properties. The fibrous gel that is secreted by the bark has a very soothing effect on the bowel and throat, it expands and coats these areas of the body, cooling inflamed membranes.

Modern herbalism imparts the properties of Slippery Elm as being a good remedy for IBS, gastro-oesophageal reflux, diarrhoea, constipation, haemorrhoids and inflammation of the respiratory tract.
