Herb meanings and uses A-Z: Goldenseal. An Herbal Antibiotic.

Goldenseal, a member of the Buttercup family, is a potent Herbal Antibiotic and Immune System enhancer. While used all over the world today, Goldenseal was originally both an oral and topical Native American remedy. A solution from the roots was applied to control bodily inflammation; washing the eyes with Goldenseal was known to stop irritation and Conjunctivitis.

When ingested, Goldenseal reveals a very positive relationship with the digestive tract. It fosters  an internal environment which facilitates repair of the intestines. This herb soothes the microbiome by irradicating harmful bacteria, while promoting beneficial bacteria. It significantly reduces Diarrhea, Constipation, IBS, SIBO, Colitis, Gastritis, Leaky Gut, and difficult digestion. Goldenseal can tentilate the appetite, and is therefore popular in recovery from eating disorders.

Particularly adept in treating infection/irritation of the mucous membranes, Goldenseal gently targets the eyes, mouth, nose, and vaginal areas. It quells sore throats and coughs, due to its ability to coat the respiratory tract. Acting as an anti-inflammatory, Goldenseal decreases the body’s allergic reactions and accelerates cellular regeneration. It aids lung ailments, flu, fever, and colds by expediting the healing process. Goldenseal decreases the mucosal response in the body, which is great for stuffy noses/colds/coughs!

Containing vitamins A, C, E, the whole B-complex, and Berberine, Goldenseal yields diverse effects. It stimulates bile flow and boosts the production of digestive enzymes, helping the body process food. This also ensures liver and spleen health, improves absorption of nutrients, and prevents infection of all organs.

The presence of Berberine within Goldenseal amplifies its Antibacterial properties. Berberine  protects against Bacteria, Protazoa, and Fungi. Goldenseal is a proven natural alternative to traditional Antibiotics.
