what else you should know

goldenseal root

Goldenseal is a North American herb that produces a knotted, yellow rhizome that gives rise to several common names like yellow puccoon, orangeroot and jaundice root. Several Native American tribes used the root stock to make tonics and skin washes. They also used goldenseal root to produce a natural dye.

The bitter alkaloids responsible for the antibacterial activity of goldenseal include berberine, hydrastine and canadine. However, check with your doctor before using this herb if you take pharmaceutical medications or have a history of heart disease or high blood pressure because of possible interactions. Canadine, for example, acts like a calcium channel blocker and berberine may interfere with the metabolism of certain drugs, including antidepressants.
