This slippery elm was just not that slippery when compared to other brands I've bought. It did form mucilage when dissolved into warm or hot water, but not as well as others I've tried. I couldn't tell why, except maybe that it wasn't pure or was taken from a different sub-specie of Elm tree. In any case, the point of ingesting slippery elm is for it to effectively form mucilage and for it to coat the internals of the digestive system. Its slippery properties are therefore what is important. This one just didn't seem as effective as others I've taken. Please like my review if you found it helpful.
I purchased this product and it was a fantastic, light brown colour and formed a nice gooey mixture. When I reordered, the powder was darker brown and did not mix at all, no matter how hot water was used. Batch number is 2820.9030, the number above the barcode. So it depends on what kind of batch you get, the first one was fantastic, second useless.
Fantastic for adding to filtered water, even a small amount, whatever I feel is tolerable and it coats my stomach ulcer. This with vit c and zinc daily plus avoiding aggravating foods to the ulcer such as caffeine in coffee, black tea, chocolate , citrus such as orange, lemon, lime, apple juice for a year. Now my stomach ulcer has healed well. My functional /integrative medicine doctor recommended this. I had my bloods done for zinc and I need 75mg daily, a lot more than most people. I am doing great thanks to my functional/medicine doctor and this product. For my stomach ulcer. If I feel it ever flares up since I have reintroduced a little coffee now and again, then I come to slippery elm powder in water the next day.
Helping to keep stomach cancer away.
Great product good quality and easy to mix and drink. Drink quickly otherwise it thickens fast; good for acid reflux, bloating and stomach upset. I take away from other supplements but after food, if I get the above symptoms, the whole fsmily uses it very happily. iHerb provide me with wonderful customer service and fast delivery.Highly recommend company to others.
