Description

The seeds are antitussive, astringent, cooling, decongestant, demulcent, diuretic, emollient, expectorant, galactagogue, laxative and lubricant. The seeds are also mucilaginous and therefore soothing to the mucous membranes lining the upper respiratory system. They can also be taken to calm inflammation in the digestive tract and to treat symptoms of constipation and colitis. Also useful in colds, cough, bronchitis, inflamed tissues, gastroenteritis, gastric ulcers, sore throat and irritable bowel syndrome.

A recent research has revealed that the polysaccharides contained in mallow can help to strengthen the immune system.
