Marshmallow root is a valuable medicinal raw material, consisting of whitish and light-brown dried roots. Marshmallow is used in both traditional and folk medicine due to its anti-inflammatory properties. It's effective for digestive system diseases such as gastritis and ulcers, as well as in treating eye diseases. It possesses disinfecting and wound-healing properties and is used in various forms, including infusions, solutions, and decoctions.

The history of the plant dates back to ancient Greek medicine — the word "marshmallow" comes from the Greek althaia, mentioned by such authors as Theophrastus and Dioscorides. Marshmallow is a perennial plant with a branched rhizome and fleshy roots, numerous stems, and round leaves with dense down on the underside.

Marshmallow is often used in medicine as an effective expectorant and cough suppressant. Cold infusions of marshmallow roots are used to treat esophageal inflammation, hyperacid gastritis, dysentery, and diarrhea. Clinical studies confirm the expectorant, coating, and anti-inflammatory effects of marshmallow root infusions.
