Dried Marshmallow Leaf

Marshmallow contains mucilaginous polysaccharides that soothe irritated mucous membranes within the digestive, respiratory and urinary tract. These compounds form a protective layer around the tissue while simultaneously promoting regeneration. The best part is they are not broken down as they travel through the digestive tract, so the benefits reach all the way to the intestines!


This herb is also a strong cough suppressant (comparable to codeine at high doses). Making it well known for its ability to reduce irritating, dry or spasmodic coughs and promote expectoration. It can also be helpful in treating asthma and acute or chronic lung congestion.


Despite the scarce research into Marshmallow and the urinary tract, there is a long history of use with most urinary issues such as bladder inflammation & difficult or painful urination. The mildly antibacterial mucilage counters infection, while its diuretic action helps draw out bacteria by increasing urine output.


To further intensify the benefits this medicinal offers the digestive, respiratory and urinary tract, Marshmallow helps promote healing by activating the immune system and supporting phagocytosis (removal of dead/damaged cells or debris). It is also antibacterial, helpful for treating gram-positive bacteria, such as Staph and E. coli.
