Slippery Elm Bark is recommended to sooth gastric diseases and has several beneficial effects on digestion. It reduces bowel transit time, absorbs toxins, increases fecal bulk and dilutes stool materials thereby reducing stool contact with the intestinal mucosa, and enhances beneficial bacteria. The bark has noted anti-inflammatory activity. As the mucilage resists digestion by stomachs acids and enzymes, it maintains its soothing action throughout the entire digestive system
