Slippery elm was one of the most useful medicinal plants of the American wilderness. Native Americans from the Missouri River Valley used a tea of the fresh inner bark to make a soothing laxative. Among the Creek, a poultice of the bark was a toothache remedy. The Osage and other groups applied bark poultices to extract thorns and gunshot balls. Surgeons during the American Revolution used bark poultices as their primary treatment for gunshot wounds, and a soldier, separated from his company, survived for ten days in the wilderness on slippery elm and sassafras barks. During the War of 1812, when food was scarce, British soldiers fed their horses on slippery elm bark. Nineteenth-century physicians recommended slippery elm broth as a wholesome and nutritious food for infants and invalids, and the tea has long been the herbal treatment of choice for acute stomach ulcers and colitis.

So why is it so Great !!!
Slippery Elm was also used by native americans to remove the gamey taste out of their meats. It was also used to gel certain kinds of foods. this is because slippery Elm will absorb almost 20 times its volume and becomes like a liquid oatmeal ( this is also known as a gruel).
In case of famine slippery Elm can be used as a food. Because it also provides nourishment throughout the body and organs. it is the only herb that will, as it goes throughout the entire organ system of the body locate an ulcer or cancerous sore; stay within them and provide nourishment to the ulcer or sore and flush out the cancer , bacteria's thus aiding in the healing of the sores over time
How safe is Slippery Elm Bark. It is so safe it can be given to an infant in replacement of formula.
Note: due to slippery elms demuculant properties and it High absorption do not take this with any medication because it may effect the absorption of certain pharma drugs and will slow the absorption rate thus altering med levels.
Slippery Em is also great for cronic diarrhea especially for babies.
