Slippery Elm powder

The inner bark of the Slippery Elm is an official drug in the United States Pharmacopoeia.

In the old days it was widely known, but the Native Americans used it the most. They made a beverage from the ground-up tree bark that was soothing to an inflamed alimentary canal and also very nutritious. The Native Americans also used it as a healing salve. Until not too long ago, Slippery Elm was part of home-made baby foods and a common remedy for digestive disorders.

Today Slippery Elm is one of the most valuable remedies in the herbal pharmacy. The powder contains an abundance of tannins and mucilage, which have both an astringent and anti-inflammatory effect. It is soothing and healing to all parts it comes in contact with. All areas that it reaches are rejuvenated, coated, and protected from irritations such as inflammations and infections. When all other foods fail, Slippery Elm is well tolerated by the stomach and can reestablish harmony in inflamed intestines within hours to a day.

Slippery Elm does several things at the same time; absorbs impurities and toxins and helps them to pass harmlessly out of the body, while nourishing the whole body and assisting the activity of the adrenal glands.

I often ad a little to the parrot food to boost the nutritional value.
