Organic Slippery Elm
Organic Slippery Elm Tea is made from the inner bark of the Slippery Elm tree, a forest tree species typically found in eastern North America. The tree, which is also known as Red Elm, Soft Elm and Indian Elm, gets its name from the gummy substance that oozes from the tough and fibrous inner bark that is collected in the spring from large branches and then dried. Slippery Elm bark has various traditional medicinal uses that include easing a sore throat and calming an irritated stomach by soothing the digestive tract and aiding in the relief of ulcers, diarrhea, heartburn and irritable bowel syndrome (IBS). Slippery Elm contains nutrients such as calcium, iron, magnesium, manganese, phosphorus, potassium, selenium, zinc, beta-carotene and vitamins B1, B2, B3 and C. The flavor of this tea is mild and subdued with an aroma that is faintly sweet.
