Goldenseal Root (Hydrastis Canadensis), grows in the wild in the eastern United States and southern Canada. The plant is a low growing, sprawling leafy plant found in rich shady soil in forested areas. It is in the Ranunculaceae , or buttercup family. The part of the plant most often used as a remedy is the underground rhizome. This root has a deep yellow color, which probably lead to the names “yellow root’ and ‘orange root’. It is high in berberine- a bright yellow very bitter alkaloid, which, along with other alkaloids, including canadine and hydrastine, gives goldenseal its distinctive color, along with many of its helpful properties.* Native people used goldenseal for centuries for a variety of health challenges, including those linked to micro-organisms as a causative factor. * It supports the health and resistance of mucous membranes * that line the digestive, respiratory and urinary tract to help act as a protective shield. *

 

Due to its popularity as a remedy, and the fact that it takes so long to grow, it has been severely over-harvested in the wild. Goldenseal Root is often cultivated by herb growers, which has been able to re-establish its availability in the herbal marketplace.
