Goldenseal Products

Goldenseal Products

This Native American botanical played a very important part in the European settlement of the Americas. Goldenseal is an extremely bitter tasting plant which contributes to its medicinal appeal. Indigo Herbs have two Goldenseal products, Goldenseal Tincture and Goldenseal Powder, that which are some of the very best 100% pure Hydrastis canadensis products on the market.

The history of Golden Seal as an herbal ingredient starts with the European settlement of the Americas. Even though it is almost certain that certain tribes of Native American Indians used this plant for centuries, there are no records of its use before the Europeans started to incorporate the plant into their own medical concoctions. When Europeans first started settling in America they favoured medicines from Europe that were known and trusted. Of course, these medicines were scarce and in short supply necessitating the need for other herbs to be used in their place.

Being weary of the Native American herbal remedies, Goldenseal did not become a major part of early American herbalism until the middle to late 18th century. It was not until 1798 that Goldenseal appeared in American herbal literature with the most notable work being that of Benjamin Smith Barton in his notes toward the ‘Materia Medica of the United States’. From the period of 1830 to 1955 Goldenseal was an official drug plant and today it is one of the most sought and used alternative remedies within the United States.

Because of its wide use during the 18th and 19th century, Goldenseal was given the status of an endangered species. Wild plants are every rare in America and are protected by law. Most of the Goldenseal products made today come from plantations where plants are monitored and protected. Goldenseal is an herbaceous perennial that can reach a height of 30cm. It is harvested for its roots which are knotted and covered in many tiny rootlets that are golden yellow in colour. The leaves are green and hairy with serrated margins. The top of the stems bears a single white flower which eventually develops into a single red berry which resembles a raspberry.

Using Herbal and Superfood powders on a daily basis is simple, easy and can be really delicious. The simplest way is to rehydrate the powder in a little filtered water to make a shot, this can easily be prepared once, twice or three times per day if you are taking the herbs therapeutically. However sometimes the herbs can be bitter so the botanical powders can be added to a superfood smoothie instead of just water. The smoothie can be made with a base of nut milk, seed milk or non-dairy milk such as rice milk. Alternatively the main body of the smoothie can be created with fruit or vegetable juices. 

Additional superfood and herb powders can be added to fortify the smoothie with extra beneficial properties. The powders are largely dissolvable and can be scooped in and then blended, shaken or stirred until fully mixed with the liquid. Any true Superfood smoothie disciple would advise that the list of possibilities is endless with the goal to feel great and potentially replace a meal with this glass of super goodness. For full instructions go to our How to take Herbal Powders page.

Another option is to use a Capsule Machine that can be bought from the Indigo Herbs website. Filling capsules with your favourite herb has never been easier when you buy a Capsule machine. You can then be sure that the capsules you are taking are 100% pure ingredients without fillers added by some companies.

Indigo Herbs Goldenseal Powder can be used in conjunction with a dressing to cover abrasions and wounds. This herbal powder can be re-hydrated in water or fruit juice, it can be encapsulated or added to a herbal powder blend. Please consult the Herbal Materia Medica or Medical Herbalist for this botanical ingredients uses.

Serving:

Take 1/3 to 1 gram a day. Or use a very small amount of paste directly on wounds. Do not exceed recommended serving.

1 teaspoon equals 2 grams (1 tsp = 2g)
  • Produced to GMP standards.
  • Quality Assured by Indigo Herbs.
  • Suitable for vegetarians and vegans.
  • Re-sealable air tight, foil pouch.
  • 100% pure botanical ingredients, absolutely nothing added.

Manufacture Process

Indigo Herbs Goldenseal Powder comes from plants grown for the specific purpose to be used as an herbal ingredient. The typical production method employed is to generate perfect root growth and only harvest when the plants are at peak maturity. The Goldenseal is then carefully dug up making sure all roots are intact. The main body of the plant is then cut away leaving the precious roots. After meticulous cleaning and screening only the very best Goldenseal roots proceed to the process of dehydration in special dehumidifiers. These machines make sure that all moisture is taken from the root matter before the dry root can finally be milled into a fine powder. All powders are then tested for heavy metals and other pollutants before being made ready for shipping. This product is 100% pure botanical ingredients, with absolutely nothing added and manufactured to GMP standards.

Goldenseal should not be used by pregnant women, or by those with hypoglycemia.

If taken over the long term, it can deplete Vitamin B and possibly disrupt normal bowel flora, therefore vitamin B and lactobacillus must be supplemented.

Taking herbal remedies in a Tincture or Fluid extract preparation is simple and easy. The tincture can be measured out into the small ml measuring cup that comes with each bottle. (A medicine cup or spoon could also be used) and the tincture can be taken directly.

However some people do find the bitter tincture taste to be too strong, so it may be a good idea to dilute the drops in water or fruit juice. For children, the elderly, those with a sensitive constitution or those avoiding alcohol, the alcohol can be evaporated from the tincture. This can be done by putting the drops in boiling water and leaving for 10 minutes to evaporate. For full instructions go to our How to take Herbal Tincture page.

Goldenseal Tincture can be added to water or fruit juice.

Serving:

Manufacture Process

The typical production method for Goldeseal is to generate perfect root growth and harvest when the plants are at peak maturity. The Goldenseal is then carefully dug up making sure all roots are intact. The main body of the plant is then cut away leaving the precious roots. After meticulous cleaning and screening only the very best Goldenseal roots proceed to the process of cold percolation in order to extract the active constituents into tincture form. The cold percolation method employs a gradient circulation of the solution which keeps the plant ingredients in perpetual contact with the blend. This technique is faster and more efficient than maceration and ensures there is less waste of precious plant materials. This premium quality product is 100% pure botanical ingredients, completely free of synthetic ingredients with absolutely nothing added. It is manufactured to GMP standards and Quality Assured by Indigo Herbs.

Goldenseal should not be used by pregnant women, or by those with hypoglycemia.

If taken over the long term, it can deplete Vitamin B and possibly disrupt normal bowel flora, therefore vitamin B and lactobacillus must be supplemented.

Best tinctures!!
Purchased their tinctures when they started up & have stayed with them ever since! They have always offered high quality products, excellent customer service, p&p and discounts. I was also impressed with their extensive knowledge of the plants, herbs etc and grateful for the well written summaries of each on their website. Over the years they have expanded to provide fresh raw foods, ingredients & recipes. Try the raw chocolate & nut butters..yum! My only gripe (small & picky) is that sometimes with so much to choose from the website can seem a bit chaotic to navigate. Having said that its never put me off!!
