Oregon's Wild Harvest Organic Slippery Elm
The demand for Slippery Elm has increased in the past ten years. The majority of commercially sold product is wildcrafted without sustainable practices, leaving the tree vulnerable to disease. Oregon's Wild Harvest is proud to offer an extensive line of certified organic encapsulated herbs, as this supports our quest to provide a sustainable source of raw materials in the manufacturing of our products.
The Slippery Elm is native to eastern Canada, and the eastern and central United States, where it is found mostly in the Appalachian Mountains. Its name refers to the soothing slippery consistency the inner bark assumes when it is chewed or mixed with water. Native American healers have used the dried inner bark of Slippery Elm trees for centuries, internally and externally.
From 1820 to 1960, the bark was listed in the U.S. Pharmacopoeia as a demulcent, emollient and antitussive. Slippery Elm has been used in Ayurvedic and Traditional Chinese Medicine for gastrointestinal symptoms.
Presently the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) recognizes Slippery Elm as a safe and effective option for sore throat and respiratory irritation due to coughs.
