Goldenseal, also known as Yellow Puccoon and Orange Root, is a perennial herb native to the woodlands of northeastern US and Canada. Although goldenseal is a member of the buttercup family, its small white flowers are not very remarkable.

The leaf was used extensively by Native Americans, who introduced the herb to early European settlers. Today, the leaf and extracts made from the leaf are found in antibacterial ointments and salves.

Goldenseal is a member of the Ranunculaceae family, which includes the common buttercup. The root is more commonly used in the traditional Chinese and Indian wellness systems, but the aerial parts of the plant exert similar properties. The common denominator is the presence of a plant alkaloid called berberine that has significant antibacterial and antifungal properties. Although the herb has been used in Asia for centuries, goldenseal is native to eastern North America.

Currently, goldenseal is classified as an endangered species due to over-harvesting and mountain top removal mining. Because the removal or transplant of wild goldenseal without a permit is unlawful and irresponsible, most goldenseal on the market today is farm cultivated.


Safety: Goldenseal can be toxic if taken in high doses. Don't take this herb if you have high blood pressure, are pregnant, or nursing. Consult your health care provider before beginning use of any herb.
