TriSana Nutrition Marshmallow Root is a great additive for added protection for all the tracts in the body - respiratory and digestive. Marshmallow Root contains large quantities of a compound called mucilage - a sticky soothing sap that covers and protects mucous membranes. With it's soothing, emollient, and healing properties, the root is perfect for drawing out infections, soaking up excess stomach acid, and removing inflammatory waste products.
These actions, for the gut, remove considerable inflammatory pain when in contact with ulcers, by forming a protective layer and covering sensitive exposed nerve endings. Its soothing properties are effective all the way down the tract, helping with constipation or diarrhea.
If your horse has issues with breathing, such as COPD or heaves, this is a great addition to help soothe and calm the lungs.
