Marshmallow has been used to treat certain digestive disorders, including heartburn, indigestion, ulcerative colitis, stomach ulcers and Crohn's disease.

Marshmallow works as a mucilage, producing a thick sticky substance that coats membranes. Marshmallow extract contains flavanoids, which contain anti-inflammatory properties. The flavanoids are able to reduce inflammation while the mucilage holds them in place and prevents further damage. 

The mechanism by which it soothes sore throats applies to gastrointestinal mucosa as well and regular consumption of marshmallow can help with the pain of ulcerative colitis and Crohn's, and prevent stomach ulcers from perforation.

A demulcent is an agent that forms a soothing film over a mucous membrane, relieving minor pain and inflammation of the membrane. This soothing effect can help inflamed and irritated tissues of the digestive tract, and urinary and respiratory organs. 

The root is also said to help increase the secretion and flow of urine and is considered a good diuretic. For this reason, it can aid in the passage of kidney stones, while minimizing discomfort. Marshmallow root is also used in combination with other diuretic herbs for kidney treatments which assist in the release of gravel and stones.

Principal uses:

- Eases sore throats and dry coughs
- Soothing effect on inflammed mucous membranes
- Digestive disorders (IBS, colitis, Crohns, heartburn, indigestion, ulcers)
- Natural alternative for managing blood sugar levels
