Slippery elm, or Ulmus rubra, is a type of elm tree native to North America and the bark has been used as an herbal remedy by Native Americans for centuries. It is a demulcent, which means that it can coat mucus membranes in the esophagus, stomach, and intestines. Slippery elm bark may be used to help relieve stress and anxiety, treat symptoms of psoriasis, improve digestion, decrease gastroesophageal reflux disease (GERD), reduce symptoms of irritable bowel syndrome (IBS) and inflammatory bowel disease (IBD), soothe a cough and sore throat, and treat urinary tract and bladder infections.
