Malvas are part of the purple plant family. Overall, these herbs are well known for their calming qualities. Malvas contain mucilages, polysaccharides and flavonoids. The mucilage gives them their soothing property. In herbal medicine Malva herbal teas are considered to be a “softener” which helps eliminate irritation and inflammation in the gastrointestinal and respiratory tracts.

Malva is effective in the fight against irritation and inflammation of the mucous membranes. In the gastrointestinal tract, these ingredients form a protective layer on the stomach lining. This action helps to relieve gastrointestinal disorders, such as gastric catarrh, enteritis, indigestion, ulcer and colitis.
