Aloe Mallow Powder (180 grams)
Tiny Pioneer Aloe Mallow Powder is a unique product consisting of equal parts aloe vera and marshmallow root. The aloe vera is a super-concentrated, spray-dried powder made from the inner fillet of Aloe barbadensis leaves, while the marshmallow powder comes from peeled roots of the Althaea officianalis plant.
Tiny Pioneer Aloe Mallow Powder is cold processed without the use of enzymes. This allows the aloe vera to maintain a distribution of polysaccharides that closely mimics those found in nature. Unprocessed aloe vera contains polysaccharide molecules of different sizes, which have different properties. For example, small polysaccharides might help to reduce inflammation in conditions like arthritis and colitis; medium-large polysaccharides might have antibacterial and healing properties; large polysaccharides, including acemannan, might have anti-inflammatory and skin-regenerating properties; while very large polysaccharides have been shown to aid in immune support. Most processing techniques destroy large and very large polysaccharides, but the special process used to produce the aloe vera powder used in Aloe Mallow leaves plenty of large and very large polysaccharides intact.
Marshmallow root has a long history of use in traditional medicine. We are not allowed to tell you about that, but we’d suggest a few minutes of internet research so that you can find out for yourselves! Search terms like ‘marshmallow root interstitial cystitis’, ‘marshmallow root Crohn’s disease’, ‘marshmallow root gut’, ‘marshmallow root inflammation’ or ‘marshmallow root coughs’ might start you off nicely.
The aloe vera used in Tiny Pioneer Aloe Mallow Powder is organically grown, non-GMO and International Aloe Science Council certified. The anthraquinone components, including aloin, are removed during processing meaning that the powder is gentle on the stomach and suitable for long term use. Aloe Mallow Powder is IC/PBS friendly and is suitable for vegetarians and vegans. It does not contain any allergens, fillers, binders or excipients.
The suggested daily intake is 6g, meaning a 180g pouch should last one month. Aloe Mallow Powder has exactly the same aloe vera content as Simply Aloe Powder, but with an equal amount of marshmallow root powder added. Once you are settled into a stable situation, you might like to reduce your daily intake to a maintenance serving. As this is a powder product, the daily intake can be gradually adjusted over time to your own requirements.
As a food supplement, take 3g twice a day, or as directed by a practitioner. 3g is equivalent to 9.5ml and a 10ml scoop is included for your convenience.
For best results, take on an empty stomach mixed into water or other cool liquid. However, if you cannot tolerate the taste or texture then you can also mix the powder into smoothies, fruit puree, or other sloppy foods. Aloe naturally tastes rather plasticky and salty; the addition of marshmallow does nothing to make the overall product more palatable! Both aloe and marshmallow are mucilaginous, meaning the product will feel quite slimy if it is left in liquid for long. This is nothing to worry about and is actually a sign that the powders are of a high quality, but we apologise for the unappealing taste and texture!
If you are a bladder pain patient, please note that it might take several weeks to notice any changes. We recommend three months of consistent usage before drawing any conclusions.
The powder will go clumpy and hard if it is exposed to moisture or left unsealed. This will not affect the efficacy, but will make it more difficult to use. Please seal the pouch properly when not in use and store in a cool, dry place. Do not put a damp scoop or spoon into the pouch. We include a silica bag for freshness which you should leave in the pouch and we will not issue refunds because your product clumped after opening!
Organic, spray-dried aloe vera powder from inner fillet (200:1); peeled Althaea officianalis radix (marshmallow root). A silica sachet is included in the pouch to absorb moisture and a scoop is included for your convenience.
|Tiny says: To my knowledge, this is the only product of its kind on the market. Quite a few customers have mentioned to me over the years that they drink marshmallow root tea and I thought it would be nice to combine two products in one. I think these two herbs are a great pairing, because they are both rich in polysaccharides and mucilage. As with aloe vera, marshmallow can take a while to show its effects, so I would reiterate the need for patience and consistency if you are an interstitial cystitis sufferer. This product is unlikely to be pleasant to take, so try to squash the lumps out and then drink it quickly would be my approach! Or if you’re a smoothie fan, mixing it in your smoothie maker will probably be a great way to disguise it. I firmly believe the aloe powder used in this product is one of the best available in the world. I am really looking forward to hearing how you get on with it, especially if you have interstitial cystitis or an inflammatory bowel condition!|
