The Marshmallow plant originates in Europe, where is has a long history of use as both a food and a medicine. The use of Marshmallow root as a confection dates back to ancient Egypt, where it was originally mixed with honey. This is believed to be the inspiration for the modern-day candy. Marshmallow root is high in a soluble fiber known as mucilage, a thick gelatinous substance. Studies suggest that marshmallow root may provide nutritive support for a healthy gastrointestinal and respiratory tract.
