Marshmallow Root

Marshmallow root has been traditionally used as an expectorant and cough remedy for thousands of years. It is rich in vitamins A, C, & B-complex as well as minerals such as selenium, zinc, copper, and iron. Marshmallow root contains a compound called mucilate which provides a protective barrier in the digestive and respiratory tract which helps to heal and repair irritation and mucus. 

Marshmallow root has been known to be an effective remedy for bronchitis, pertussis, respiratory infections, canker sores, laryngitis, strep throat, and sore throats. It is also highly beneficial for indigestion, gastritis, peptic ulcers, colitis, hiatus hernias, diarrhea, heartburn, irritable bowel syndrome, Crohn’s disease, bladder infections, and GERD. 

Marshmallow root has also been used to aid weight loss as it is known to curb the appetite and function as a natural diuretic which helps to remove bloating and water retention from the body. Topically marshmallow root has anti-bacterial properties that are helpful in treating cuts, scrapes, pinkeye, boils, shingles, abscesses, psoriasis, and eczema. It also works great as a mouthwash for swollen gums and infections and it can also be very helpful in relieving gum pain in teething infants. 

Marshmallow root tea is a wonderful way to receive its health benefits. Simply simmer 4 teaspoons of dried root with 2 cups of water for 30 minutes. Allow to cool, strain, sweeten with raw honey if desired, and sip throughout the day. Marshmallow root can be found in tea, extract, syrups, tincture, capsule, and cream form at your local health food store.
