I use this for my IC (Interstitial Cystitis), it doesn’t even take time to work. It works instantly. I take it as directed before night with a small amount of water, and instead of getting up 5+ times a night to go to the bathroom, it’s only one. Sometimes none! I **highly** recommend this product. I have tried other marshmallow root products but this is the only one that, as long as I remember to take it nightly, it works! The taste isn’t too bad, it has a hint of sweetness to it and it is the best tasting marshmallow root extract I’ve tried so far.
I can't say it was this alone, but two to three drops of this combined with two to three drops of Marshmallow root essential oil into your favorite carrier oil, rub into your skin, and its like new skin by next morning. I've used more essential oils, creams and lotions than I can count, and there's absolutely no comparison. The normal results are always, temporary smoothness or hydration, sticky residue or heaviness that never absorbs. I apply this before bed and next morning my skin feels supple, from the inside out,skin I haven't felt in a long time, I'm always wanting to touch my own skin now 😉
I think, in comparison with marshmallow root powder, the suggested dose of this extract, which is 1-2 ml 3 times a day is a sufficient dose, and taking more means consuming more glycerin, which they use as an additive. So I switched to organic marshmallow root powder, which is used to make a tea-like mixture, the mixture is thicker than water, and to make the same thickness from this extract, I would probably need to use the entire bottle for one mug. Also, the flavor of 2 ml dissolved in 4 tbs of water is not that strong, so I assume the extract itself is not that strong...? Of course if you hate the taste of marshmallow root tea, this extract is easier to consume, dissolved in a small amount of water and doesn't require using hot water like the powder does.
This is a most excellent herbal extract product. Not only is it alcohol free, it is high quality, fresh and potent. I've used this product for multiple purposes and it has been excellent in each application. I have used this product to reduce and relieve symptoms of both viral and bacterial bronchitis and have had wonderful results. Marshmallow is an herb that helps loosen and reduce viscosity of the buildup that happens with colds and bronchitis. It is also a great product for helping to soothe and heal your gastrointestinal system. I have also mixed this marshmallow root extract with organic, natural lotion products and used it topically to soothe eczema, psoriasis, chapped and cracked skin. It can be used on skin either straight or mixed with a quality moisturizer or lotion to soothe many skin issues. It is also a fantastic herbal product to help heal cystitis and UT inflammation and irritation. Really good for diaper rash, too.
I have been taking Marshmallow Root for several months now after having read that it helps with IC symptoms. This product has been a God-send, and I make sure that I always have it on hand. I take it 3 times/day mixed with a small amount of water. Would recommend it to anyone struggling with IC.
I bought this for my 11 year old dog who was having issues with her bladder. The vet recommended she take this along with a few other supplements and when I introduced this into her daily routine I noticed a big difference. She seems more comfortable and was having less accidents. Hopefully it continues!
I bought this for my mom's dog. He's on a strange diet and medications and has had terrible stomach troubles with all of it. He begged constantly to go outside to eat hibiscus flowers. Unfortunately in the winter there are few to none available. He's been desperate and miserable and unable to settle down. My reading suggested that the marshmallow root would provide relief similar to the hibiscus and even better in some ways. After ONE DOSE I got a phone call telling me that he was a different dog. He's been on it for about a week and she continues to be thrilled with the change in him. He's comfortable, is able to relax, and is a happy boy.
Having IC is a pain & getting into food that causes distress can happen on purpose or sometimes comes as a surprise. I have been using these drops mixed with water & I am amazed at how they take pain away or keep it from happening. I put 30 drops in a glass of water & sip it during the day or gulp it down, (depending how I'm feeling). There are times I have NO pain at all & remember the good old normal days. (Just remember not to eat things on your trigger list or you will soon be reminded that these are NOT the good old days!!!) Love this product. Highly recommend it!!!
I got this so that I don't have to make marshmallow tea all the time to keep IC in check, so as a time saver. Happily it works better than the tea! I'm not as sensitive to triggers. I also noticed that I am not so reactive to citrus which used to cause bleeding, pain, and spasms almost immediately with any amount. I read about something like this in the scientific literature, apparently it's true. It's simply magic. Marshmallow gave me my life back.
I use only 5 drops per day, not more. Too much marshmallow root causes joint issues and can really wreck kidneys. 5 drops is perfect.
