I've had this powder laying around but never got around to using it. I know it says to use one tablespoon in water but I'm wondering if it's okay to use in something like cream of wheat, which also consists of water.

Thanks in advance.

I would think so. Keep in mind se thickens in water, like psyllium, so I'd use particularly watery cream of wheat. Bon appetit!

I prefer to use away from meals, I think other users can chime in on how to use it exactly. I've always used Slippery Elm bark in the form of loose leaf tea. There is almost no taste.

I just bought some powder today and as I mixed some in a short glass of water, I nearly gagged. Woot! tongue

The directions on my capsules say to use between meals. It coats your insides and hinders the absorption of not only meds but foods as well.

"Slippery elm has no serious side effects. Because it coats the digestive tract, it may slow down the absorption of other drugs or herbs.
You should take slippery elm 2 hours before or after other herbs or medications you may be taking."

From the website cureforulcerativecolitis.com

I take it at night just before going to bed. Mix a tsp or 2 in a few ounces of cranberry juice. Can also mix it with water and honey.
Let it sit for a while to thicken.
For more info check out the website.

slipprty elm is a very interesting topic, ive heard good things and some not so good things. how does it actually work does it coat the intestines in the hope that it sooths the ulcers and reduces the inflammation?
 
Cheers

Its always something is right on.

Not super appetizing but, gruel of slippery elm and probiotics thinned with aloe is really healing. I really need to start that again.. thanks for the reminder.
