La Malva per le infiammazioni
Mallow, a humble little plant that grows everywhere, is a major figure in popular medicine, used for centuries against inflammation of all kinds. Its name comes from the Greek malaké, springs, and rightly points out the emollient properties of this herb. The ancient Romans used it to recover from hangovers and the doctors of the time recommended it to keep away diseases. Today, we know that its active ingredients, mucilages, have specific efficacy on the mucous membranes throughout the body.
