What Goldenseal herb Is:

To Native Americans and newcomers to the continent, goldenseal was a folk medicine staple, a surefire, infection-fighting antibiotic and antiseptic that also stopped bleeding and hemorrhaging. The low plant, which grows naturally only in shaded forests across the eastern and central part of the United States, bears just one green white flower, which is followed by a raspberry-like fruit. You'll have to dig deeper for the natural medicine, though, for the bright yellow roots contain the active ingredients and also produce a nice dye.

Highly valued by American Indians as a medicine, wild goldenseal is becoming increasingly rare. It has anti-microbial activity and is active against many disease causing organisms. Goldenseal prevents bacteria from attaching to cells, stimulates the immune system, lowers fevers, and has anti-cancer effects.
