Blooms Slippery Elm Bark Powder 125g
Blooms Slippery Elm Bark is a convenient way to settle an acidic or irritated stomach. Available in pleasant tasting powder form, it can alleviate heartburn by coating and soothing the irritated upper gastrointestinal tract and reduces the symptoms of indigestion, constipation and diarrhoea.
Blooms Slippery Elm Bark powder is a traditional 'mucilaginous' remedy which has a soothing effect on the digestive system and may help to soothe an irritated or unsettled stomach and gastrointestinal tract. Mucilage is a complex mixture of polysaccharides extracted as a viscous or gelatinous fibre.
Slippery Elm is considered a bulk laxative as the mucilage absorbs water. The result of this is it swells in the intestine, helping to initiate a bowel movement. It is important to drink plenty of water, especially if using this product for this effect.
Each gram contains:
Slippery Elm (Ulmus rubra) bark powder.
Prepared using premium powder 1 g (1000 mg).
No added gluten, wheat, yeast, animal products, lactose, milk derivatives, sugar, salt, artificial colours, flavours or preservatives.
