What are Swanson Slippery Elm Lozenges?

When it comes to winter each year, we all suffer at some point or other. Colds, coughs and chest infections are all commonplace irritations induced principally by damp, bitter weather. They aren't unlikely to cause you any serious problems but they are unquestionably a source of daily consternation when they happen.

Let's face it, this is far from a new phenomenon. For obvious reasons, weather induced illnesses were more of a problem hundreds of years ago than they are now, which is exactly how Slippery Elm was first discovered as a tonic for the throat.

Slippery Elm (Ulmus rubra) is a very particular species of Elm tree native to North America. It gets its very evocative name because the Native Americans who first discovered it, noticed that when it rained, the bark of the tree would become greasy and oily to the touch. Being the industrious and daring sorts that they were, they soon realised that they could use this gel to not only apply to wounds as a sort of poultice but they could also swallow it to offer them relief from sore throats and gastrointestinal problems.

Today that gel is called mucilage and its purpose remains just the same. The only difference being that instead of having to scrape it off a tree it has been standardised and placed in a handy, naturally sweetened lozenge for you to take. With added vitamin C and Echinacea, this surely has to be the most simple, natural and pleasant way to soothe your sore throat.

What are Swanson Slippery Elm Lozenges used for?

Such is the elastic nature of Slippery Elm that it can even be used when hardened to create a bandage. Not just for humans either, its particular protective chemical makeup means that, Native Americans used to wrap their food in these bandages to keep it fresh.

English colonists would use the Slippery Elm's abundant nutrients and vitamins to treat cold sores, boils and chafing as well as turning to it to make a nutritious gruel when times got really hard. But that was then and this is now.

Today, we don't need to worry about keeping our food fresh or making bandages, we just need to know that all the incredible vitamins and antioxidants in Swanson Slippery Elm Lozenges can help to soothe our sore throats.

  • 100% sugar free throat lozenges
  • Supports immune health
  • Boosted by the incredible power of both Vitamin C and Echinacea
  • Just take one each day for ongoing support through the winter months
