Slippery Elm

Slippery elm is the inner bark of the red elm tree. Native Americans used slippery elm in healing salves for wounds, burns, ulcers, boils and skin inflammation. They also took it orally to relieve diarrhea, stomach problems, coughs and sore throats.

Slippery elm contains mucilage, a substance that becomes a thick gel when mixed with water. This means it coats and soothes the mouth, throat, stomach, and intestines.

Slippery elm also contains antioxidants that help to relieve inflammatory bowel problems. Interestingly, slippery elm stimulates nerve endings in the gastrointestinal tract, leading to increased mucus secretion. The increased mucus helps to protect the gastrointestinal tract against ulcers and excess acidity.

Because it is rich in fiber, slippery elm also helps to soften the stool and allow it to be passed more easily. For this reason it is very valuable for individuals with constipation. Slippery elm is found in Fibertone.

  1. Im dealing with hep c and liver cancer stay cloged alot which comes with it silppery if I took a teasspoon daily will it hurt my liver can it get it cleaned

    • Hi Thelma,

      Slippery elm will be fine to take.
      Dr Cabot recommends you take
      Livatone Plus 2 caps twice daily to improve liver function.
      N-Acetyl Cysteine (NAC) 2 caps twice daily at least 2 hours away from food, if any upset occurs please take with meals. NAC is the precursor to glutathione; the body’s most potent antioxidant. This supplement works well with Livatone Plus to get the liver better faster.
      These supplements can be purchased here: https://shop.liverdoctor.com/
      We also recommend raw juicing with carrot, kale, orange, lemon, oranges and lime.
      Let us know how you get on.

      Kind Regards,
