Hydrastis canadensis - ENDANGERED
Goldenseal is best-known for its berberine content, which lends it its bright yellow color and anti-microbial activity. It has an affinity for the mucous membranes and is a great tonic, restorative, antibacterial, and anti-inflammatory. This makes it a great choice for irritation, inflammation, or infections in the gut mucosal lining, the sinuses, the throat, the mouth, or the lungs and bronchia. Goldenseal can be helpful for healing ulcers of the gut or skin. Finally, its bitter taste triggers a nervous system response that stimulates the gastric juices and aids digestion.
