Hi, I have tried both to help with acid reflux. I found the marshmallow made me sick, but I may have taken too much in not enough water!

I find the slippery elm helpful and take it twice a day. I would recommend taking the powder and mixing it in warm water and allowing to stand for a while before taking, that way it forms into mucalage which is the desired effect to coat the stomach.

Re: marshmallow root or sliperry elm?

Hi,
I havent tried marshmallow and slippery elm did nothing for me.
Aloe-Vera juice is good.
I started taking "Manuka-Honey" ten days ago and have found I feel pretty good since I started it, so will continue for a month and see how things go,
Good Luck,

Solofelix.

I take herbal remedies in powder form and mix with water as I think that is the best way to take them, particularly for slippery elm or marshmallow as you want to create a mucalage. If you get capsules you can open them up and pour the powder into water, and wait a while, you will see how they turn glupey - you want that to line and protect the stomach.

I take slippery elm about half an hour before lunch and dinner, but sometimes I take it between meals.

good luck hope it helps
