   Marshmallow Leaf - Highest Premium Quality OverviewKnown throughout the ancient Egyptian, Arab, Greek, and Roman cultures, and used continually for at least 2000 years, marshmallow leaf and root continue to provide relief for irritations, internally and externally. In traditional folk healing practices it was given to soothe and moisten mucous membranes of the respiratory, digestive, and urinary tracts, and also as an external soothing poultice for wounds and burns. This plant has been used in beverages, desserts, candies, cosmetic creams, and was the "root" of the original marshmallow confectionaryMarshmallow leaves are of a slightly different chemical makeup than the root. They contain flavonoids including kaempferol, quercetin, and diosmetin glucosides; additionally, the leaves contain the coumarin scopoletin and phenolic acids including syringic acid, caffeic acid, salicylic acid, and vanillic acid. The root and the leaf of the plant both contain a substance known as a mucilate. This mucusy substance does not dissolve in water. When wet it swells and becomes very slippery. Marshmallow increases the production of the bodys mucosal fluids. This soothing action is very helpful with any condition that is irritated or chapped and works to sooth inflamed tissues. The root and leaves of the plant are used medicinally. Marshmallow has been used for many to relieve coughs and sore throats, as well as for chapped skin and minor wounds. One of the most famous uses of this herb was used in a drawing paste. When applied to a splinter, thorn or bee sting, it would draw out the offender and speed healing. If the skin is red, has a splinter/sting or irritated, you can apply crushed marshmallow to it and increase healing time.Marshmallow helps to lessen heartburn and intestinal conditions, such as ulcers, irritable bowel syndrome, and constipation.
