The first thing that comes to mind when you read Marshmallow Root is likely not a flowering plant that’s home to one of nature’s most powerful and efficacious herbs.  However, Marshmallow Root has been used for thousands of years in many cultures as a powerful herbal remedy for a wide range of dis-eases ranging from colds, cough, and sore throat, to diarrhea, indigestion, and irritable bowel syndrome (IBS), to even eczema and pinkeye.

The marshmallow plant is native to Europe, western Asia and northeast America and is a fleshy, flowering plant that can reach up to 4 feet high.  According to the University of Maryland Medical Center (UMMC), the entire plant contains a slippery, slick substance called mulicage, long-believed to be the active ingredient in the herb.  Mulicage is actually comprised of large sugar molecules, a long chain of polysaccharides, most of which is concentrated in the plant’s root.  Marshmallow root is rich in nutrients and is easy to digest, making it an excellent food during times of digestive discomfort.

Organic Marshmallow Root is one of multiple herbs and numerous high-impact ingredients in Living Fuel’s revolutionary whole-meal functional superfoods LivingFuel SuperGreens,  LivingFuel SuperBerry Ultimate and SuperBerry Original.  Each of these foods contain 300 mg per serving of organic marshmallow root.

A cocktail of vitamins, minerals and herbals may delay the major aspects of the aging process and extend lifespan by 10 per cent, according to a new study from Canada.

Mice fed a supplement containing 30 dietary ingredients did not experience a 50 per cent loss in daily movement like other non-supplemented animals, according to findings published in the current issue of Experimental Biology and Medicine.

Researchers say the benefits were linked to increases in the activity of mitochondria, the power plants of the cells, as well as by reducing levels of free radicals produced by the mitochondria.

Lead researcher David Rollo of McMaster University said these findings could help people live better longer.

“This study obtained a truly remarkable extension of physical function in old mice, far greater than the respectable extension of longevity that we previously documented. This holds great promise for extending the quality of life of ‘health span’ of humans,” Rollo added.
