Marshmallow Root Benefits

If you've tried Elderberry Syrup PLUS, you'll already know that Elderberry Lane's founder Lorinda loves including marshmallow root in the PLUS ingredients. 

Sold in numerous over-the-counter forms including pill, droplet, or dry, it's one of our favorites, especially in today's climate.

Both the leaf and root of the marshmallow plant are used to decrease the pain and swelling (inflammation) of mucous membranes that line our respiratory tract - a perfect benefit for what we're going through.

Marshmallow Root Benefits

Marshmallow root is a soothing demulcent herb with incredible benefits, traditionally used to treat heartburn and reflux. However, its benefits don't stop there.

  • Decreasing Respiratory Tract Inflammation
  • Treating Dry Cough
  • Stomach Lining Inflammation
  • Diarrhea (TMI? It's just real life!)
  • Stomach Ulcers
  • Constipation (here we go again!)
  • Urinary Tract Infections
  • Urinary Tract Stones 

To add to that list, marshmallow root also has a delicious earthy and deeply soothing flavor.

We highly suggest also drinking it as a tea, while you enjoy a cool afternoon on the back porch or as a reward after taking a stroll around your local lake!

Even if it's a little chilly outside still, don't forget to get outside for fresh air as much as possible.
