What is Goldenseal? (Hydrastis canadensis)
Goldenseal has been called “King of the Mucous Membranes” for its notable benefit upon infected or inflamed mucous membranes. It is especially indicated for infections of the mucous membranes of the respiratory tract and digestive system.
In the respiratory tract, Goldenseal works best when an active infection is present, as indicated by mucous that is thick and yellow or green in color. It is a highly effective remedy for sinus infections and can be diluted in water and used as a sinus irrigation fluid (for example, in a neti pot). It is not indicated for thin, runny mucous.
Due to its astringent and drying nature, Goldenseal should only be used for acute infections and not for longer than two weeks at a time.
Goldenseal root contains the bitter alkaloids berberine and hydrastine, two powerful, natural antibiotics. These compounds help to overcome infection by activating the white blood cells, especially the T-cells, a specialized subgroup of immune cells that defend against bacteria and viruses. Berberine is also specific for parasitic infections including Giardia, and fungal infections such as Candida.
Its bitter compounds also increase the secretion of bile and improve its flow. They inhibit contraction of smooth muscle surrounding the bile duct, thereby relaxing the duct and facilitating the flow of bile into the small intestine. This supports fat digestion and, secondarily, increases peristalsis and bowel regularity.
Because widespread use of Goldenseal has resulted in over-harvesting of this important botanical from its wild habitat, Natural Wellbeing uses only certified organic Goldenseal, to ensure sustainability.
