Ever heard of Slippery Elm? I take it whenever my stomach is inflamed, but it does more than just calm the stomach.
Slippery elm is a tree, and the inner bark (not the whole bark) has been shown to treat a number of digestive issues. What makes it so great? It contains mucilage, a substance that becomes a slick gel when mixed with water. This mucilage coats and soothes the mouth, throat, stomach and intestines.
It’s also been know to help:
?Gastroesophageal reflux disease (GERD)
?Irritable bowel syndrome (IBS)
?Diarrhea……..Plus, it’s been even used to treat breast cancer!!!!
You can find it in capsule or powder form (I prefer the powder as shown) at most health food stores or online retailers. Here is a good one. Mix it with water or a spoon of honey, but make sure to take it on an empty stomach and 1 hour before/after taking other meds or herbs.
