Microgenics Slippery Elm Digestion Formula 60 Capsules

Soothes irritated tissues as seen in gastric reflux. It is estimated that close to 12% of the Australian population suffers from gastric reflux1.

Gastric reflux can happen when the sphincter between the oesophagus and stomach doesn’t seal and close properly. This allows the acidic contents of
the stomach to come back up into the oesophagus, where it irritates the lining of the oesophagus, which can lead to inflammation and serious damage2.

Slippery elm can be used to soothe those inflamed tissues. Its mucilage component attracts water to form a gel which has soothing and protective effects throughout the gastrointestinal tract and provides a barrier against gastric acid. This makes slippery elm particularly useful in the treatment of hyperacidity, dyspepsia, and gastro-oesophageal reflux3.

Studies have shown that slippery elm also has antioxidant activity in inflamed mucosal cells4.

Liquorice acts as an anti-inflammatory and protects the mucous membranes in the digestive tract as well. This makes it a very useful herb for those suffering from a peptic ulcer, as several studies have shown that liquorice can help improve gastric and duodenal ulcers5.

Supports IBS
A combination of Slippery Elm 14 grams per day and Liquorice 3 grams per day has been shown to be effective to improve bloating, abdominal pain, flatulence and bowel motions in IBS6. Microgenics Slippery Elm Digestion Formula contains higher doses of both herbs, if taken in the correct dose.
