Goldenseal is a woody herb native to northeastern North America, though it has been on the endangered plants list since 1991. Goldenseal (Hydrastis canadensis) is one of the most popular herbs sold on the American market. But why is it so popular? Western knowledge of goldenseal begins about 200 years ago. Benjamin Smith Barton’s Essays Towards a Materia Medica of the United States (published in three parts from 1798 to 1804) is one of the first sources of information on goldenseal.
For the most part exactly such active compounds of Goldenseal as alkaloids determine its influence on organism. The herb is considered to be a strong natural antibiotic so is employed to treat different disorders wherever localized in the body. It is efficient under inflammatory internal (respiratory, digestive, genitor-urinary) and external (skin) conditions. Alkaloid berberine activates white blood cells which fight with infection. An important Goldenseal’s peculiarity is its ability to act on all mucous membranes as alterative, antibacterial, astringent, antispasmodic, antiperiodic, detergent, diuretic, emollient, laxative, soothing, stomachic and tonic.
