I've had raging GERD for the past 4 years. Changing my diet helped 10%. Taking Rx antacids helped 10%. But I still had severe coughing so bad I'd gag multiple times a day, constant burning throat, constant upset stomach. Then waking up at least a dozen times a night to pop a cough drop to stop coughing even while sleeping at an incline. BTW, I'm in great health otherwise. Out of sheer desperation and fear of developing esophageal cancer over time I starting researching. I thought I'd give this a go. I took as directed and over the course of a week the symptoms receded. After the 1st 24 hrs my symptoms were 75% gone. A week after, ALL MY SYMPTOMS ARE COMPLETELY GONE!!!. The last few nights have been the first full night's sleep I've gotten in years! And I can lay flat!!! I'm just over the moon, I could just cry. Yes, it's a lot of capsules to take, (4 3x per day between meals) but ask me if I care. I just wish I would've figured out this miracle sooner.
This brand of slippery elm is excellent, whether in capsules or in bulk. I've used it for years for diverticulitis and ulcerative colitis. It's a great product! Be careful of other brands because they don't use the part of the plant/tree that's effective. If you open the capsules or put the bowl powder in a glass, it should thicken. If it doesn't, get your money back! And, You have to make sure that you're taking plenty of it for it to help with IBS.
It was a really a lifesaver
I had covid few months ago and after that I suffered with acid reflex and i was nauseous all the time . Every thing tasted badly until I started taking slippery elm
It was really beneficial for getting my appetite again.
The packaging and quality of this product are very good.
I really needed this supplement and thanks to Iherb found it as it’s not available in my country. I had problems with my gut micro biome after taking antibiotics for 10 days and this was the only thing that helped - natural ingredient and a high quality supplement with nothing artificial.
As an LPR (Laryngopharyngeal Reflux, or Silent Reflux) sufferer - which means that I get very tough reflux episodes during the night, choking for air - I am always looking for natural solutions, because the drugs (PPI's, esomeprazol for instance) do not work. They are mainly for people who have GERD (another type of reflux, with heartburn). I have now been taking 3 of these, with a glass of warm water (1/2 freshly boiled water, 1/2 water) about an hour before going to bed. I also take apple vinegar capsules from iHerb's own brand (another review). Since I started that procedure, the episodes have almost been eliminated. I no longer dread going to sleep at night, because of the fear of choking to death. I have just ordered the third bottle of Slippery Elm and I can foresee taking it for the rest of my (long) life.
I give this to my dog when she has a bought with diarrhea or stomach upset. It coats the GI tract to bring relief and healing. I either open the capsule and add it to her food or I sprinkle it in her water. Just be sure not to give any medications at the same time because the slippery elm will inhibit their absorption.
My doctor prescribed me this supplement capsules because of leaky gut syndrome and inflammatory processes. I'm taking it for a month now and my lab results show improvement! I find it a quality product and you can benefit from its consumption if you have such problems.
Consumption: I got it 3 times a day, 2 capsules with water shortly before meal.
This really helped heal my stomach in a few weeks. Slippery elm is a miracle supplement that coats the stomach & gut and allows it to heal. I was in severe pain due to taking long term antibiotics but this really helped my stomach to heal and I can now take my meds with no pain. When pain was extreme I also had to take a PPI (proton pump inhibitor) to reduce acid but that alone does not heal the stomach as I had been on it for years previously. Now I don’t need to take anything for my stomach.
I use slippery elm for gut health. I take one capsule in the night after taking other herbs ( you should take slippery elm 2 hours before or after taking other herbs). It does help me and I’m happy with this product.
