Malva sylvestris

The leaves of the common mallow have a diuretic effect used to reduce inflammation of the mucosal membranes of the urinary tract and can help with Urinary Tract Infections. This plant can also relieve  toothaches, sore throats and general inflamed tissue. It is also an immunity booster as the polysaccharides act as pathogens in the body when ingested and activates the immune system, additionally the mucosa has an abundance of white blood cells and by increasing mucosal secretion, immunity is boosted.
