SLIPPERY ELM - Long used as an herbal remedy by Native Americans, slippery elm (Ulmus fulva) is sourced from the inner bark of a tree that grows primarily in the eastern region of North America. Slippery elm contains mucilage, a gel-like substance thought to soothe irritated or inflamed skin or tissue.
By coating the esophagus with mucilage, slippery elm (taken in tea or lozenge form) may help lessen heartburn pain. Slippery elm may be helpful in healing inflammatory bowel diseases (such as ulcerative colitis), suggests a study published in 2002. The herb is thought to help ease inflammation.
