What is Swanson Marshmallow Root?

Come on - admit it. You never realised that Marshmallow actually came from a plant. Don't feel stupid, very few people do. The fact is though that Marshmallow isn't just a confectionary dreamt up in a sweet shop; it is a natural flavour with a fascinating history - both as candy and as medicine.

You might imagine that Althaea officinalis, the flowering plant from which our famous fluffy sweets is derived, is a mythical, tropical plant from far, far away. The most random and rare of flora that has long been a well guarded secret of ancient kings and rulers. Actually, it grows right here, in Europe, all around us. In fact, it's surprisingly common.

The ancient Egyptians were the first to recognise Marshmallow for its true worth, using the root to create a honey and nut sweetened confection which soothed sore throats - much like our lozenges do today. It was the French who eventually took it a step further, adding egg white and rose water to cook up something closer to the treats we know today.

Away from the soothing internal effects of the Marshmallow root, the Romans would extract the sap of the plant and adhere it to the wounds of their gladiators in preparation for their fights. Even the ancient Arabs would use the sap to create poultices (bandages) for their wounds.

What is Swanson Marshmallow Root used for?

For well over 2,000 years now the root of this flower has formed an important cornerstone of both food and medicine. Used by the Chinese, the Egyptians, the Romans and the Syrians, it has formed an unexpected cornerstone of palliative care and childhood fantasies.

  • Soothes throat, GI tract and stomach
  • 100% natural
  • 500 mg per capsule

What makes Marshmallow Root so useful is a substance called mucilage. It may not sound particularly attractive but when it's mixed with water, it forms a slick gel that can be used in liquid form to coat the thrat, GI tract and stomach to ease irritation.

By harnessing that mucilage in an easy to take capsule, Swanson Marshmallow Root offers you one of nature's most ancient soothing liquids, capable of settling even the most tumultuous of stomach irritations.

What is the recommended dosage of Swanson Marshmallow Root?

Simple - just take one capsule each day with water. To be used as a dietary supplement.
