Slippery Elm (ulmus fulva) 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 both Native Americans and early settlers as a survival food during lean times.
Slippery Elm Powder can be used as a tea by boiling 1 pint of water and adding 1 oz. powder, stirring constantly. Drink 6 oz. three to four times a day.
As an herbal dietary supplement, stir 1 teaspoon into 1 cup of water and simmer for several minutes. Let cool. Add honey and sip or gargle, several times a day.

Works great for an inflammed digestion system, felt it soothing the intestines right away. I found it's best to drink small glasses of it throughout the day to maintain it's effect. The warm tea recipe really helps soothe, much better than taking pills.
I use it for my cat who has a stomach problem - the Vet suggested it and it has been working fine.
usage with psoriasis

i started using this product because doctor John Pagano says it helps against a leaky gut which causes psoriasis. the psoriasis doesnt go away, therefore you need to change diet etc. it does reduce the itchy feel so i have to shower less, and if i forget to take it, especially before going to bed, the 'number two' i normally have in the morning, doesnt go that well. obviously this also draws back on diet. i use it before breakfast, dinner and sleeping. It does seem to sooth/coat the GI tract helping it to recover. its nice to drink, no need for honey although who doesnt want some sweetness. especially since white sugar is a total no go. concluion; for psoriasis i can recommend to use slipepry elm. but dont expect miracles.

Easily mixed with water and taken, more convenient than taking many capsules. Calms the digestive tract.
