Marshmallow root extract

Marshmallow ... a root with healing properties

Althaea officinalis L. belongs to the mallow family (Malvaceae). Marshmallow is a hairy perennial shrub that can grow to 1.50 m high. Mainly, the two-year-old roots are harvested. The primary roots can reach lengths of 50 cm. After the harvest, the damp roots must be dried quickly and promptly, as this is important for subsequent processing.

According to the HMPC monograph, the root of Althaea officinalis L. is traditionally used for the symptomatic treatment of oral and pharyngeal irritation and the associated dry cough, as well as for the symptomatic relief of gastrointestinal problems.
