Slippery Elm (Ulmus rubra) Bark Profile

Also known as

Ulmus rubra, Ulmus fulva, Indian elm, moose elem, red elm, and sweet elm.

Introduction

The slippery elm is a large, deciduous tree that is native to North American from Texas to Manitoba, and from Florida to Quebec. When growing in well-drained soils, it can reach a height of 60 feet (20 meters). The inner bark of the branches is collected in spring for medicinal use. Slippery elm bark added to hot water has a slippery and mucilaginous consistency. Native Americans used soaked slippery elm bark as a natural bandage, allowing to dry over wounds. Many tribes also wrapped slippery elm around stored food to prevent spoilage. Slippery elm also served as a food during famine and for making porridge for small children and elderly persons.

Constituents

Mucilages.

Parts Used

The chopped bark is suitable for poultices. Use ground bark for tea. The inner bark is preferred and this is what Mountain Rose Herbs exclusively offers.

Typical Preparations

Teas, infusions, poultices. Up to 5 tablespoons (15 grams) of slippery elm bark can be dissolved in a cup (240 ml) of water. Sometimes found encapsulated and as a liquid extract.

Precautions

Since slippery elm is a food product, there is no upper limit on dosage, although about 2 tablespoons (10 grams) of the herb is the minimum amount that produces noticeable effects. Avoid taking it with other medications, as the mucilage can prevent proper absorption. Make sure to drink lots of water with slippery elm bark powder or capsules.
