Goldenseal Earns the Gold

Your Body is Made of Gold

    Goldenseal has been used by Native American tribes for treating such medical conditions as cancer, ophthalmia, and the swelling of the breasts. It was even used for a short period of time for the swelling of the thyroid gland. It is noted in the American Materia Medica that a pregnant woman who developed goiter was given a goldenseal tonic and the thyroid was almost immediately back to its normal size. This same technique was tried and successful for 25 other cases of goiter.
    
    This could be due to the fact that goldenseal stimulates bile secretion, which can help with ridding of poisons from the body and skin. This is because the active ingredient in goldenseal has antiseptic properties. It is also used to treat upset stomachs due to the fact that it can keep your tummy alkaline. It can also help rid of infections in mucous membranes like in the intestinal tract, eyes, and sinuses. This means goldenseal is a natural way to help treat illnesses such as colds, eye infections, and UTI’s.

    Still, one of the main reasons why goldenseal is one of the most popular herbs out there is because rumor has it that it will mask illegal drugs in your system.

    Not a lot of research has been done on this topic, but the reason it is in our REVV product is because it has amazing immune-boosting properties. Again, this is because goldenseal helps protect the mucous membranes of the body which is the easiest way for a pathogen to infect. These membranes literally block out anything that can be harmful to the body so if they are in tip-top shape it is easier for them to do their job.

    Goldenseal can build up your immune system by making membranes that protect your body stronger. Goldenseal is in our WheatgrassLove products because it is one of our main goals to keep your immune system made of kicking; we want you to have immunity and strength of a gold medalist!
