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.
