									Golden Seal

Golden Seal is a perennial herb that is part of the Buttercup family.
Golden Seal is used for a lot of medicinal purposes in a variety of ways
both topically as well as internally. There are actually quite a few ways
to purchase Golden Seal, in a bulk powder, salve, tincture, or a tablet.
Internally it is a great digestion aid and if gargled with it has been
known to remove canker sores.

Golden Seal has been around since times of the European conquest of
America but has remained very strong because even today it is used for
anti-catarrhal, anti inflammatory, antiseptic, astringent, bitter tonic,
laxative, and muscular stimulants. Herbalists say that if you are trying
to ease gastritis, colitis, duodenal ulcers, loss of appetite, and liver
disease, Golden Seal is what you might want to look into which is
available at all herbal supplement stores. Golden Seal is very bitter so
it stimulates bile secretions, stimulates the appetite, and aids in
digestion.

Golden Seal has been around since the mid 19th century but is now
threatened because Golden Seal is one of the most over harvested herbs.
It keeps getting harvested and harvested but never replaced. Golden Seal
which also goes by the name Yellow Root is often combined with Echinacea
and prepared for easing the symptoms of colds. It is the underground root
of Golden Seal that is harvested and dried to make teas and both liquid
and solid extracts that are then turned into bulk powder, capsules or
tablets.

Scientists claim that there is no evidence to support the use of Golden
Seal for any ailments or medical condition whatsoever because of the very
small amount of berberine that Golden Seal contains. Regardless of
scientific claims, Golden Seal is one of the most widely sold herbs on
the market today.

Although a very controversial subject, many people believe that the
reason that Golden Seal is standing solid ground in the marketplace is
because it is used primarily for the purpose of masking positive drug
screens for people who are required to take drug tests for work or
through law enforcement agencies. Many claims there is no validity to
this claim but still many people are buying it because a friend told them
that it worked and for that matter it is promoted in High Times magazine
for the sole purpose of covering bogus drug screens. The claim is that
because THC which is the active ingredient in marijuana is fat soluble it
stores itself in the kidneys and becomes water soluble. Two to three days
prior to a drug screen, you get some Golden Seal, follow the directions
and it's a guaranteed pass.

If Golden Seal is one of the most popular herbs on the market today then
someone has to be keeping them in business and it is true that many
people are turning to herbal remedies in an attempt to heal themselves
naturally rather than load up with a bunch of prescriptions that have
nasty side effects.
