Description - Research and Analysis

Name

Althaea officinalis L. (Malvaceae), commonly called marshmallow, marsh mallow, or sweetweed. In French, it is Guimauve offcinale; in German, Eibisch or Weisse Malve.

Source

Remedies are made from the dried peeled roots, usually collected in Autumn, when the plant is at least two years old.

History

The Romans raised this herb to eat, but the Greeks used it as a medication. Emperor Charlemagne believed in its restoring properties and promoted its use in Europe during the Ninth Century. During the Middle Ages it was used (unsuccessfully) to help support symptoms of bacterial infections.

Traditional Support Uses

Demulcent and emollient.

Commission E Recommendations

Extracts of the leaves can be used to help support irritation of the mouth and throat. Extracts of the root can be used to help support mild stomach upset.

Possible Effects

The main constituent of the herb is mucilage. Mucilage is a type of material produced by plants for storing energy. Technically, mucilage is a type of sugar. Pectins and starches also fall into this class. When the roots are soaked in water they swell and form a soothing gel, which may explain the popularity of ointments made with this product. When the gel passes through the gastrointestinal tract it has the effect of calming the intestines (although very large amounts can produce exactly the opposite effect). For that reason, European physicians still prescribe this herb to help support gastroenteritis, ulcer issues, and even colitis. The practice makes sense, but like so many of the other supportives endorsed by Commission E, the practice has not been validated in clinical trials.

Dosage

The recommended dosage is 6 grams of root or equal preparations. As a syrup, a single dose is 10 grams.
