Recent studies have reported that marshmallow exhibits fighting actions against
unfriendly organisms. The studies performed so far have focused on its traditional use in
the mouth and throat and its effect on harmful organisms typical to those areas. This
makes marshmallow root a potential fighter against bacteria associated with gum disease
and strep throat.
