Product Details

Use as a warm nourishing drink before going to sleep. It helps you relax and wind down, so that you can enjoy a good nights sleep. Older people often have smaller appetites, yet they still need some sound nutrition for normal health and strong immunity.

Slippery Elm food is an ideal first food for children, and grown ups of any are with delicate tummies. It has been known to help create an interest in solid foods again.

If you've not been well, you'll find that Slippery Elm makes a light and nutritious food or drink. This product is absolutely natural which means that your natural digestive processes are encouraged to work normally.

Other Information

Slippery Elm is the ground inner lining of the bark of the Slippery Elm tree (Ulmus fulva), which is found in the forest glades of the Americas. It is capable of absorbing many times its own weight in liquid and forms a mucilage.
For many people milk is difficult to digest, as the milk protein forms into heavy clots in the stomach. When Slippery Elm is mixed with hot milk a mucilage is formed which disperses throughout the milk preventing these heavy clots from forming. In this way instead of the solid mass being formed in the stomach, a finer more easily digested curd is produced.
