Benefits of Mallow Root—Mallow Root Tincture helps repair the Gut Lining, Preventing Leaky Gut Syndrome
Research suggests that mallow root is an effective way to help treat certain digestive disorders, including leaky gut syndrome, which develops when particles leak outside tiny openings in the gut lining, allowing them to enter the bloodstream where they can trigger autoimmune reactions.
Mallow Root helps restore integrity of the gut lining by forming a protective layer around small junctions. In addition, it seems to be beneficial for people suffering from other forms of inflammatory bowel diseases, including ulcerative colitis and Crohn’s disease.
Digestive uses for mallow root include lowering or preventing heartburn, stomach ulcer symptoms, diarrhoea and constipation. It coats the lining of the stomach and prevents acid from causing discomfort and “burning.” For most forms of indigestion, added to warm water as a tea tends to work the best and is usually soothing to the stomach while not causing any side effects. For even more stomach-soothing effects, you can mix mallow root with other digestive aids, such as peppermint essential oil or steeped/raw ginger root.
Mallow Root Tincture Fights Bacterial Infections
If you feel symptoms of tonsillitis, bronchitis, a urinary tract or respiratory infection coming on, take marshmallow root at the first sign of discomfort like swelling, burning and tenderness. It helps speed up the healing process and naturally kills bacteria that can cause various ailments.
Once ingested, it helps increase the secretion of urine, which improves the body’s ability to draw bacteria out of the urinary tract. This is the reason it’s also recommended for treating kidney stone symptoms.
Tinctures are made with fresh herbs extracted in alcohol. Diluting for children or pets is suggested. Add to boiling water and let sit for 10 minutes and alcohol traces will dissipate.
