What is Althea?
Althea is an herbal remedy that's been used for thousands of years as part of traditional Ayurvedic, European, Greek and Unani medicine. Also known as marshmallow or sweet weed, althea is can be sourced from the root or the leaves of the plant. Although it's probably best known for its association with sweet marshmallow treats, it actually offers powerful benefits for throat and respiratory issues. The herb forms a protective layer on mucus linings to help soothe irritated tissues, including those in the throat, lungs, digestive system and urinary system. It can also help to maintain gastrointestinal health when taken on a regular basis.
