Slippery Elm (ulmus rubra), also known as Red Elm, Moose Elm or Indian Elm, is a small tree native to North America. It has been a part of traditional herbal medicine for over 100 years, and was used by North Americans and early settlers as a survival food during lean times. Tradition has it that the American troops who spent the bitter winter at Valley Forge during the Revolutionary War survived for days on slippery elm gruel.
Slippery Elm is a soothing herb that is consumed in many forms including lozenges and liquid extracts.
As a dietary supplement, take 2 capsules 1 to 3 times daily.

iHerb Customer Reviews
Slippery elm coats the digestive tract, allowing it to heal. My husband got off his PPI medication for GERD and takes 2 capsules of slippery elm with each meal instead. On the meds, he still had a great deal of pain. Now he only has pain about twice a week. Really excellent results! When he does have pain, we make a tea from the slippery elm powder, and the pain goes away right away. (You can just open the capsules until you have a tsp of powder and add boiling water - thick, bland tea which benefits from a sweetener).
I have acid reflux. I find taking four to five capsules stops the rumination and settles my stomach. I strongly recommend it for anyone who suffers from this chronic condition.

Whenever I have a stomachache, bad gas or general gastrointestinal uncomfortableness, I take one or two of these (with probiotics) and it does wonders in less than an hour. I don't have any serious conditions but this seems really good for minor ones.

I used everything to my gastritis: digestive enzymes, Mastic gum, Zinc + Carnosine, Colostrum, Manuka honey, licorice, aloe vera, cold infusion of mallow, cabbage juice, glutamine, homeopathic products, everything! The only one that really works is Slippery Elm. I take a teaspoon dissolved well in hot water three times a day with a little 'honey. It works fine in a few days have improved a lot.
