Most people think of puffy white balls when they think of marshmallow. However, herbologists know how medicinally useful this herb can be. Marshmallow is a member of the mallow family and grows in marshy, wet areas. Although it can be found all over the U.S. its most common habitat is in the west. What many people don’t know is that the so-called marshmallows sold in stores actually don’t contain any real marshmallow. Once upon a time the roots were boiled to make this confection and the plant was often eaten as a vegetable in parts of Europe.
Marshmallow is prized for its high content of mucilage. This common herb works to support proper respiratory function, improves the health of the mucous membranes and may even help urinary irritation. This herb is soothing and lubricating for various parts of the body. Like all Nature’s Sunshine products, marshmallow capsules are made to the highest quality standards. There are 450 mg of marshmallow in each capsule.
