Common Sense™ “Golden Seal” has recently gained a reputation as an herbal antibiotic as well as an immune enhancer. It helps reduce internal inflammatory conditions along with relieving whooping cough, diarrhea, liver disease, fever, stomach pain, flatulence, and pneumonia.
It is also used to stimulate digestion and improve appetite, promoting healthy liver and spleen functions. It is great for treating inflamed skin and those of the eyes, such as conjunctivitis. Goldenseal root has been used as natural insulin without negative side effects (whether used long term or short term).
When made as a poultice, it is good for bedsores, psoriasis, and hemorrhoids. Other benefits of Goldenseal include relief from the flu, colds, and laryngitis. Goldenseal may also help with heart problems, hepatitis, cystitis, spleen, pancreas, and alcoholic liver disease.
Goldenseal soothes irritated mucus membranes such as the eyes, ears, nose, and throat. Taken at the first signs of respiratory problems, colds, or flu, Goldenseal can prevent further symptoms from developing. It has also been known to help reduce fevers and relieve congestion and excess mucous.
It is particularly the alkaloid berberine that is most likely responsible for Goldenseal’s effectiveness against bacteria, protozoa, fungi, and Streptococci. It also promotes easier removal of the bacteria by inhibiting their ability to adhere to tissue surfaces. Berberine is also anti-fungal and strongly anti-diarrheal. Goldenseal contains calcium, iron, manganese, Vitamin A, Vitamin C, Vitamin E, Vitamin B-complex, and other nutrients and minerals.
Ingredients: Goldenseal Root.
