Cedar Bear® Goldenseal Root (1 fl oz)
Goldenseal is one of herbalism’s more bitter herbs, which is what makes it the strong health supporting herb that it is. Goldenseal originally grew only in eastern North America and is a member of the buttercup family. It’s the root that is used as an herb.
Goldenseal has a long history in Native American medicine, who used it for many common needs, including respiratory, skin, digestive, liver, and eye health. It became known as Goldenseal because when the stem is broken, the scar resembles a gold wax letter seal. Goldenseal became part of early colonial medical care as the European settlers learned about it from the native tribes. It became very popular in the 1700's and by the 1800’s it was harvested by the hundreds of thousands of pounds and became endangered in the wild.
Even though Goldenseal has become rare in the wilderness and woods, there are now successful growing projects that have made it so we can utilize the powerful health benefits of Goldenseal Root today.
Cedar Bear’s alcohol-free TincTract® of Goldenseal Root stimulates and supports the immune system, digestive system, urinary system and mucous membranes throughout the body.
Goldenseal Root is an immune stimulant and helps to boost immune system function and especially helps upper respiratory needs.It’s the chemical berberine in Goldenseal that gives it the distinctive yellow color to its roots. Berberine is also in Oregon grape rootand barberry root bark, which have very similar actions as Goldenseal, and work well when they are used together. Goldenseal is also frequently combined with echinacea, as they are both immune activators, they work very similarly, and complement each other when used together.
Goldenseal benefits the mucous membranes throughout the body, including the mouth, sinuses, throat, the intestines, stomach, and the urinary tract, and if your body is holding onto excess water weight, Goldenseal helps promote urination and sweating and supports proper fluid dynamics.
Goldenseal also helps out with your gastrointestinal system. One of Goldenseal’s very important benefits is to your gut flora when it needs supporting. Because it is very bitter, Goldenseal stimulates appetite, aids digestion, and encourages bile secretion.
