Slippery elm bark had been used for centuries as a multi-purpose herbal remedy. Its use can be dated back to the indigenous populations of North America, who harvested slippery elm bark to use as a remedy for urinary tract infections, digestive disorders, and skin irritations. As a topical application made with the inner bark, the portion of the plant that possesses the medicinal properties, slippery elm bark was utilized during the American Revolution to heal gun shot wounds due to its anti-inflammatory and anti-bacterial properties.*
Slippery elm bark has antioxidant and anti-inflammatory properties, which may help to alleviate inflammatory conditions of the intestines including colitis, irritable bowel syndrome, and diverticulitis. Slippery elm bark is rich in mucilage, which swells in the body and becomes slippery as it passes through the digestive tract. This indigestible substance enhances digestion, absorbs toxins, softens waste, and promotes the growth of beneficial intestinal bacteria. The presence of slippery elm bark in the body increases mucus secretion, which may protect the gastrointestinal tract against excess acid and the formation of ulcers.*
When applied directly to the skin as a topical aid (combined with glycerin), slippery elm bark powder is useful in healing burns, boils, and inflammatory skin problems. A paste made with slippery elm bark powder and other antibiotic herbs like burdock root and wild thyme helps to heal bacterial infections of the skin.*
