    Best thing ever

    My Nan introduced me to Slippery Elm Powder 70 years ago. Any tummy problems, eating disorders etc can be eased by drinking this product, either alone or mixed in a smoothie. Particularly good when feeling nauseous. Highly recommended.

Product Description

Thompson's Slippery Elm Food is a 'must'. It has been taken with excellent digestive benefits by those with delicate stomachs and intestines for decades. But it is extraordinary how many people say that it's also 'the best bedtime drink for ensuring sound restful sleep'.Odd name Slippery Elm Food - Food because it's as nourishing as oatmeal - Elm because it comes from the inner bark of the North American Red Elm Tree - and presumably Slippery came about because it gently leaves a smooth, silky lining through the digestive tract creating a comfortable, relaxed feeling. A soothing, easily digested beverage, particularly suitable for invalids, convalescents and sufferers from digestive disorders. Usage:Fill a half pint beaker with milk. Pour into saucepan and heat, leaving at least two tablespoons of cold milk in the beaker. Add one heaped teaspoon (or more according to taste) of Thompsons Slippery Elm Food to the milk in the beaker and mix carefully to a thin smooth paste. Slowly pour the hot milk onto the mixture stirring continuously. Can alternatively be microwaved. Sweeten or flavour to taste if desired. Slippery Elm is the ground inner lining of the bark of the Slippery Elm tree (Ulmus fulva), which is found in the forest glades of the Americas. It is capable of absorbing many times its own weight in liquid and forms a mucilage. For many people milk is difficult to digest, as the milk protein forms into heavy clots in the stomach. When Slippery Elm is mixed with hot milk a mucilage is formed which disperses throughout the milk preventing these heavy clots from forming. In this way instead of the solid mass being formed in the stomach, a finer more easily digested curd is produced.
