First Nations' peoples have used Slippery Elm as a food and as a tea for centuries, and it is from them that knowledge of the medicinal value of the plant became known to European settlers. There are even tales of how it was used to help heal the fresh war wounds of soldiers during the US Civil War.
Slippery Elm bark is rich in mucilage, a substance that has a gel-like consistency and which can help maintain the healthy mucosal lining of the entire alimentary tract.
In ZiiNGLES, we include Slippery Elm as an important demulcent. Demulcent herbs contain high amounts of mucilage and have the ability to coat and soothe the oral mucosa and relieve inflammation and discomfort. Native peoples recognized Slippery Elm's benefit in the maintenance and promotion of good oral health.
In addition, it is reported that Slippery Elm causes a reflex stimulation of nerve endings in the gastrointestinal tract, leading to an increased production and secretion of protective mucous within the entire digestive tract (starting with the oral cavity).
