Golden Seal Root
Natures Sunshine Goldenseal Root. Hydrastis canadensis. Golden seal root has been used for centuries by Native Americans for a variety of problems, including healing cuts and wounds, improving appetite, relieving liver and stomach problems, repelling insects (mixed with bear grease) and treating watery eyes (probably allergies). Some reports indicate the Cherokees used goldenseal for external cancers. These days, we consider it to be one of most most powerful natural antibiotics. Berberine, an isoquinoline alkaloid found in golden seal, has been studied at length in both clinicial and experimental environments for its antibacterial and amebicidal properties. Berberine has been shown to have a vast array of antibiotic effects, including against bacteria, protozoa and fungi, including candida albicans. 100 capsules
