Slippery Elm (Ulmus Rubra) is a member of the Elm (Ulmus) family. It is the inner bark of the Elm tree that is used for herb products. The bark is highly mucilaginous "slippery".
Slippery Elm’s soothing effects to irritated mucosa and membranes is due to its content of mucilage. The powdered bark has been shown to neutralize acidity and protect mucous membranes along the gastro intestinal tract, by coating the membrane surface. This can help the irritated area to heal themselves
