    Hi Gloria. I make up Slippery Elm as a drink as I find it really soothing for my gut... it doesn't make my tum hurt so I'm afraid I have no suggestions on how to avoid!

    I buy the Slippery Elm in powder form sold as a food supplement from the health shop and follow the instructions on the box- it can be made up so it's like porridge consistency and eaten as a meal or made up as a drink, which is what I do. I have a mug most nights and if my gut is "off" I have it during the day instead of food. Wouldn't be with out it!

      Thanks for your response! I was wondering was I suppose to take it that way. Since it absorbs more faster that way. I'm really afraid to try it again since it made my stomach hurt. Maybe that was to strong taking it that way and maybe I should cut back to one capsule.
