    Slippery Elm Bark POWDER (Ulmus rubra)

    DIGESTION/SORE THROAT/URINARY TRACT ISSUES

    Used in treatments for:

    • Irritable Bowels
    • Colitis
    • Constipation

    • Digestion
    • Diverticulitis
    • Hemorrhoids
    • Hiatal hernia
    • Sore Throat
    • Ulcer symptoms

    Slippery elm contains mucilage, a substance that becomes a slick gel when mixed with water. It coats and soothes the mouth, throat, stomach, and intestines. It also contains antioxidants that help relieve inflammatory bowel conditions. Slippery elm also causes reflux stimulation of nerve endings in the gastrointestinal tract leading to increased mucus secretion. The increased mucus production may protect the gastrointestinal tract against ulcers and excess acidity.
    PRECAUTIONS-research before taking if pregnant, no known medical interactions
    Slippery Elm is used in our Tummy B Calm ULTRA recipes.

    DOSING SINGLE HERBS-the "Four Herb" rule.

    We apologize for the inconvenience but we do not give dosages for using one herb alone. The reason behind this is it is far easier to overdose using a single herb, than a combination of herbs. We would need a complete health history, complete feed breakdown and even with all the information, it can still be a risk to suggest dosage on single herbs. Therefore, our solution is to recommend the dosage for a minimum "four herb" combination. As herbs work synergistically (supporting each other) it is best to use herbs in combination, rather than alone. If you are wanting to target an herb (say Milk Thistle for the liver) it is very easy to do a simple online search, like “herbs for liver” and come up with several suggestions…milk thistle, marshmallow, ginger, and burdock are a few that pop up that would combine well to enhance liver function. Once you combine these minimum four types of herbs, feed in the following manner…

    900-1400lb horse 1-2 tablespoons mixed POWDERED herbs AND/OR ¼ cup mixed chopped herbs

    Over 1400lbs 2-3 tablespoons mixed powdered herbs AND/OR 1/3 cup mixed chopped herbs

    400-900lbs ½ to 1 tablespoon mixed powdered herbs AND/OR ¼ cup mixed chopped herbs

    Under 400lbs 1-2 teaspoons mixed powdered herbs AND/OR 1 tablespoon mixed chopped herbs

     Start with minimal dosage. If no changes seen within 2-4 weeks, increase by half dose.

    We continuously update information on our herbs for relevant information but as information on herbs is rather endless, please conduct your own searches as new information is constantly being uploaded on the internet.

     As with all herbs, please confirm if it is safe for pregnant or lactating mares before use.
