Marshmallow isn't what you might think: it is not the puffy white sugary sweet marshmallow that folks roast over fires! Rather, marshmallow root is just a common herb used to heal burns, wounds, chaffed and sore skin, to soothe sore mouths and sore throats, for dry coughs, and gastrointestinal irritation. Its emollient and demulcent properties ensure it is very worthy of healing irritations, and therefore it is typically a part of combinations for ulcers, leaky gut, and for irritated mucous surfaces. Because the Marshmallow herb is such a highly effective wound-healer, it is well suited to healing peptic and duodenal ulcers, gastroenteritis, enteritis and colitis. It truly is one of the best herbs to take care of an ulcerated digestive system. It should come as not surprising that Marshmallow Root has been useful for over two thousand years in Europe. Its first recorded use was in the ninth century BCE. It was widely found in Greek medicine. Its name Althea comes from the Greek aitho, meaning, "to cure ". Marshmallow
Marshmallow capsules typically come in a 450 mg dosage - an ordinary daily dose is either 10 Marshmallow Leaf capsules, or 12 Marshmallow Root capsules. If you prefer Marshmallow Tea produced from leaves, infuse 1 - 3 teaspoons of the marshmallow leaves, or 1 - 3 tea bags, in a pot of water and drink three cups a day.
For Marshmallow Root Tea, decoct 1 - 3g of the loose root in a pot of water and drink three cups a day. (Note that the Commission E recommends slightly lower doses of the tea.)
Tincture doses vary: herbalist David Hoffmann recommends 1 - 4 mL three times a day, but others recommend 
the greater dose of 5 - 10 mL of the leaf 2 to 3 times a day, and 10 - 25 mL of the main up to three times a day. NEXBOX A95X
Marshmallow Leaf Extract should be studied 1 - 2 mL of the 2 to 3 times a day; an average Marshmallow Root Extract dosage will be 2 - 5 mL up to three times a day.
The marshmallow plant is quite safe and does not have any negative effects or contraindications. It's quite safe to take while pregnant or breast feeding. You will find no drug interactions, although marshmallow may delay the inner absorption of drugs taken at the same time. This possibility, however, is just speculative.
