Marshmallow root or Althea officinalis has limited research to support its use in treating GERD. However, there is research to support its demulcent, mucilagenous properties in the respiratory tract and from clinical experience I have seen these same properties helping to coat and soothe the digestive tract in someone who is experiencing GERD.
