Slippery elm bark has been used as an herbal medicinal remedy in North America for hundreds of years. It works with the body to draw out impurities and toxins, assisting with the healing of all body parts. Historically, Native Americans used the herb topically for skin issues and internally for a variety of ailments. In fact, it was used to treat wounds on soldiers during the American Revolution.
Slippery elm bark also contains antioxidants that help relieve inflammatory bowel conditions. This makes the bark an excellent herbal treatment for a variety of digestive conditions including Gastroesophageal Reflux Disease (GERD), Crohn’s Disease, ulcerative colitis, diarrhea, diverticulitis, and Irritable Bowel Syndrome (IBS). It is also believed that slippery elm bark may cause extra mucus production in the gastrointestinal tract, in which case it may also help protect your intestinal tract from ulcers. It is for these reasons you’ll find it as an ingredient in Jon Barron’s all natural Colon Regenerator formula.
