ARROWROOT MEDICINAL PLANT
Arrowroot is a plant. People use starch taken from the root and rhizome (underground stem) to make medicine. Arrowroot is used as a nutritional food for infants and for people recovering from illness. It is also used for stomach and intestinal disorders, including diarrhea. Some people sooth painful gums and sore mouth by applying arrowroot directly to the affected area. Babies cut teeth on arrowroot cookies. In foods, arrowroot is used as an ingredient in cooking. Arrowroot is often replaced with cheaper starches, including potato, corn, wheat, or rice starch.
- Intestinal problem (irritable bowel syndrome, IBS). Early research suggests that taking powdered arrowroot three times per day with meals for one month reduces stomach pain and diarrhea in people with IBS.
- Soothing mucous membranes, such as the mouth and gum linings.
- Other conditions.
More evidence is needed to rate the effectiveness of arrowroot for these uses.
