A pleasant tasting way to settle an acidic or irritated stomach.
Henry Blooms Slippery Elm Bark powder is a traditional ‘mucilaginous’ remedy which has a soothing effect on the digestive system and may help to soothe an irritated or unsettled stomach and gastrointestinal tract. Mucilage is a complex mixture of polysaccharides extracted as a viscous or gelatinous fibre.
Slippery Elm is considered a bulk laxative as the mucilage absorbs water. The result of this is it swells in the intestine, helping to initiate a bowel movement. It is important to drink plenty of water, especially if using this product for this effect. Henry Blooms Slippery Elm Bark can also be used as a soothing demulcent to the digestive tract and can relieve both constipation and diarrhoea.
