Thompson's Slippery Elm Bark is a soothing herb suited to easing sensitive and inflamed mucous membrane linings of the stomach and bowels. Slippery Elm contains high amounts of mucilage that can coat the intestinal mucosal surfaces and may assist in detoxifying the system. It can help relieve intestinal irritation and inflammation. It is suitable for use in conditions involving either diarrhoea or constipation.

The chewable tablets allow the mucilage of the herb to freely coat the intestinal tract.

Slippery Elm is recommended for all complaints involving mucosal surface irritations. Slippery Elm is renowned for its ability to soothe throat, stomach and digestive irritation. In people with heartburn, the mucilage appears to act as a barrier against the damaging effects of acid on the oesophagus. It may also have an anti-inflammatory effect locally in the stomach and intestines. Because it can help to normalise bowel actions, Slippery Elm is suited to conditions involving either diarrhoea or constipation.
