SLIPPERY ELM TINCTURE
Rebuild, balance and soothe tissue with slippery elm.
Slippery elm, an herbal remedy derived from the inner bark of the slippery elm tree, provides several purported health benefits.
The health benefits of slippery elm are rooted mainly in its soothing properties. It is thus effectively used as a mucilaginous herb internally to coat and soothe mucous membranes while also absorbing toxins which can cause intestinal imbalances. Slippery elm is an effective remedy for duodenal ulcers, gastritis, diarrhea, colitis, irritable bowel syndrome, hemorrhoids and heartburn.
Slippery Elm is also said to coat the throat, soothe soreness, reduce irritation of the mucous membranes and prevent coughing. People have used it for centuries to treat bronchitis, colds, and other upper respiratory problems
Slippery elm is also valuable in dysentery and other diseases of the bowels, cystitis as well as irritation of the urinary tract.
The slippery elm plant, more specifically slippery elm bark, is also part of a North American formula called Essiac, which is a popular herbal treatment for cancer.

How To Use Tinctures
The benefit of tinctures is that the medicinal value is easily assimilated in the body, they are convenient to use, the average shelf life is 5 years, and they offer a more complete range of medicinal properties than dried herbs or capsules.
The best way to use liquid herbal tinctures is to put the suggested amount (for an adult about 20-30 drops up to three times a day ) in a glass of water, tea, or juice and drink the entire contents. Tinctures can also be administered directly into the mouth without the assistance of water however some tinctures are unpalatable which is why most people prefer to dilute it into a beverage.
