Marshmallow root (Althea Officinalis) has been widely used for centuries for its soothing properties for gastrointestinal and urinary tract issues, as well as minor skin wounds and burns. It works by coating irritated mucous membranes; alleviating a sore throat from a dry cough, and soothing an upset stomach and heartburn. It is typically consumed by infusing it in dried or powdered form into a hot or cold tea, and can be purchased from most health food stores.
Our own Digestion 360 contains marshmallow root powder, along with many other beneficial ingredients which promote a healthy gut and help to diminish bloating and irritation.
🍭Marshmallow root shouldn't be confused with the sweet store-bought marshmallows, (like the ones roasted over campfires) which are unfortunately no longer made with marshmallow root and don't contain any health benefits.
