A few centuries past in North America the inner bark of the Slippery Elm tree was considered a great commodity since it could heal your body inside and out. Indigo Herbs is now offering you this ancient Native American high quality treatment in its purest form of Slippery Elm Bark Powder. This ingredient can be either mixed up for internal consumption or made into a topical paste for treating the skin. We think you’ll agree it has great qualities for helping lower intestine problems and skin problems.

The Elm is one of many trees that are revered by the Northern Tribes of Native Americans. The Slippery Elm grows in the North East of the American continent where it was used as a gathering point of neutrality for certain tribes. Under the Elm they would make treaties and barter with neighbouring tribes. The Slippery Elm was also held sacred because it could help heal wounds, comfort an upset stomach and be prepared into a nourishing emergency food. Today scientists have remarked that the inner bark of the Slippery Elm when dried and milled into a flour has nearly the same nutritional content as oats porridge. George Washington and his men survived on little else but Slippery Elm bark for 12 days during the siege of Valley Forge in 1777. Some historians have noted that if George Washington’s soldiers hadn’t of know about the Slippery Elm as a food then the American War of Independence could have had a very different outcome.

Slippery Elm is a deciduous tree that can grow to around 60 feet tall. The inner bark is reddish and is slimy to the touch. The leaves are a light lime green with an asymmetrical shape with a velvety sheen. Buds and flowers are red when first emerging and turn into red tinted stalked bunches that resemble sea urchins. The seeds are encased in a papery ‘wing’ that when released by the tree uses the wind to carry them off to distant locations.

Using Herbal and Superfood powders on a daily basis is simple, easy and can be really delicious. The simplest way is to rehydrate the powder in a little filtered water to make a shot, this can easily be prepared once, twice or three times per day if you are taking the herbs therapeutically. However sometimes the herbs can be bitter so the botanical powders can be added to a superfood smoothie instead of just water. The smoothie can be made with a base of nut milk, seed milk or non-dairy milk such as rice milk. Alternatively the main body of the smoothie can be created with fruit or vegetable juices. 

Additional superfood and herb powders can be added to fortify the smoothie with extra beneficial properties. The powders are largely dissolvable and can be scooped in and then blended, shaken or stirred until fully mixed with the liquid. Any true Superfood smoothie disciple would advise that the list of possibilities is endless with the goal to feel great and potentially replace a meal with this glass of super goodness. For full instructions go to our How to take Herbal Powders page.

Another option is to use a Capsule Machine that can be bought from the Indigo Herbs website. Filling capsules with your favourite herb has never been easier when you buy a Capsule machine. You can then be sure that the capsules you are taking are 100% pure ingredients without fillers added by some companies.

Our Slippery Elm Bark Powder can blended with a superfood smoothie, mixed with fruit juice, taken simply with water or sprinkled into food.

Serving:

Suggested serving range is 1-4g up to 3 times a day. It is recommended that Slippery Elm Bark Powder is added to a large glass of water (300ml) as taking the powder with water increases effectiveness.

Indigo Herbs Slippery Elm Bark Powder comes from the United States where it has been harvested in the traditional way by herbal experts. The trees used are all from a sustainable source and either scheduled to be cut down or grown specifically to be harvested for their bark. After the tree has been cut down, the outer bark is stripped and the inner bark harvested. The viscous inner bark is then dried in strips with only the best bark pieces used. The bark strips are then milled into a powder which is tested for foreign bodies and other chemicals before it can be packed and shipped.

Pregnant women should not take Slippery Elm without talking to a medical herbalist first.

My lack of understanding meant I was surprised when this went very gloopy when I tried to make tea out of it - I now don't believe this is how it is supposed to be prepared. It's much better as part of a smoothie etc. However, the fact that it was gloopy reassures me that it would have lined my throat as I had wanted, if I had drunk it. The error was on my part and not a reflection of the powder which was of high quality.

I've had bad IBS for 15 years.. was using capsules and paying silly money for them and compared to this powder they are rubbish. This is the real deal. IBS is 80% better. half teaspoon each day sorts me out. i was taking loads of capsules with not much effect.

This slippery elm product is sourced sustainably and is very pure, both of which was of prime importance to me and why I ordered from Indigo Herbs. I find this product to be very helpful in soothing the whole of the digestive tract, and is also helping with the nausea I have experienced due to the removal of my gallbladder some six months ago. This slippery elm really seems to be effective in settling things down and making life more pleasant.

Used to help relieve Psoriasis symptoms. This is the second pack I have purchased so to early to report any change. I have high hopes because there have been a lot of good reviews on this product. It has a strange taste so 2 or 3 spoons of chocolate milkshake helps.
