Marshmallow is known for its mucilaginous qualities. It was once used in French confectionary but is unlike the puffy candy that received its name. It is a demulcent, an agent that coats and protects mucosal surfaces. The active components in marshmallow are large carbohydrate molecules that form marshmallow’s characteristic texture when mixed with fluid.
In the respiratory tract marshmallow decreases cough, speeds removal of mucus and helps to heal the tract. In the stomach and intestines marshmallow protects the lining from ulceration. Marshmallow also soothes the urinary tract and helps the skin to heal. Natural health practitioners recommend marshmallow for a variety of needs including sore throat, colds, coughs, bladder infections, digestive ulcers, burns, and wounds.
Marshmallow herb is an excellent kidney and bladder tonic. It contains active components that help to relieve the build of fluid, and also those that help to remove toxins from the body. Often used by people on cleansing and detox programs, Marshmallow root capsules can have a "soothing" effect on an irritated urinary tract.
