Marshmallow Root Tea 50g Printable Version

 Product information:

The all-purpose healing herb!

 

Botanical Name: Althea officinalis

Common Names: Marshmallow, althea, sweet weed, mallards, guimauve, mortification plant, schloss tea, wymote

Origin:

Form: Tea

 

In Greek, the origin of the genus name althea means "to heal" which describes the medicinal properties of this great herb. Marshmallow root contains starch, mucilage, pectin, flavonoids, phenolic acids, sucrose, and asparagine. Inside the body, mucilage forms a slick gel that coats the throat and stomach to reduce irritation. It is this healing property that has made Marshmallow popular for healing sore throats, colds and flus, bladder infections and helping to pass kidney stones. Marshmallow root is also applied topically to soothe inflamed skin (e.g. eczema).

Note: Marshmallow root has also been shown to lower blood glucose levels, so people with diabetes should talk to their doctor before taking this herb.
