Mallow flower root, famous for growing in marsh lands, may facilitate the release of hardened, synthetic calcium from bones to allow the utilization of organic calcium. It may powerfully replace unusable, brittle calcium with bone-building potassium and restore bone health by re-crystallizing bone structure. This process may increase bone density and strength, restore bone flexibility, and provide pH balance to bone marrow for improved B-cell (killer immune cell) production. Marshmallow root contains mucilagin, the substance that makes it slimy, also making it possible for it to soothe and soften any kind of tissue, particularly mucous membranes, and reduce skin infection, bruises, and wounds, and to repair cell damage. Topical applications may also reduce varicose veins, while internally working to sooth sore throat and upset stomach, expectorate mucous laden bronchia and lungs, and stimulate the immune system.
