Traditional uses of goldenseal extract capsules have broadened to include the natural treatment and prevention of colds, respiratory tract infections, allergies, eye infections, digestive issues, canker sores, vaginitis, urinary tract infections.
Goldenseal contains berberine, which has been proven to be antimicrobial, anti-tumor, anti-inflammatory and blood glucose–lowering. It has been used in Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) and Ayurvedic medicine for thousands of years to treat dysentery and infectious diarrhea.
The energetics is key to understanding how goldenseal works. In Western Herbalism, Goldenseal is bitter, cold, and astringent. In TCM, these qualities are used to clear heat and drain dampness (both of which indicate possible infection).
As an astringent herb, it tones and tightens mucous membranes. This is one of our most important herbal actions for addressing infections located in our mucous membranes. By toning lax tissues, goldenseal helps to secure our mucous membranes as an important barrier between ourselves and the outside world.
Herbalists refer goldenseal as a mucous membrane tropho restorative because it balances the mucous membranes. It can both increase mucosal secretions and inhibit mucosal secretions, depending on the need of the individual. This works best with smaller dosages as large dosages tend to be more strongly astringent, thus drying out the mucosal membranes (which is often inappropriate).
