Goldenseal is known to have large quantities of berberine, an alkaloid that is an anti-inflammatory. Due to the anti-inflammatory properties, golden seal extract oil is a component to our topical use products.
Advantages of goldenseal.
Studied by the University of Maryland Medical Center, UMMC, berberine appears to have antimicrobial actions which can kill different types of bacteria, yeast, parasites, and possibly other harmful microorganisms. Furthermore, the Memorial Sloan-Kettering Cancer Center informs that goldenseal also contains hydrastine, canadine, canadaline, and beta-hydrastine that can assist in anti-inflammation and detoxification of the body. Due to these properties, we include goldenseal extract for topical use against rashes, ulcers, wound infections, itching, and eczema.
Commonly grown in North America, goldenseal can be easily found all over the eastern side of the United States. To ensure that our dried goldenseal have been properly dried, stored, and sourced to avoid mold and ecosystem harm from where they can be found, Holistody works directly with Mountain Rose Herbs to ensure that our goldenseal are Certified Organic and Kosher Certified.
