Goldenseal Plus (60 Capsules)

Supports Healthy Immune Function


web-Goldenseal-Plus

Goldenseal is used to decrease irritation of the mucous membranes — commonly used in the second stage of a cold or flu (Clement-Kruzel et al., 2008).

 

Although not as potent as prescription antibiotics, berberine (the active compound) exhibits a broad spectrum of antibiotic activity (Amin, Subbaiah & Abbasi, 1969). It has also shown activity against protozoa and fungi (Kaneda et al., 1991). Berberine has also been shown to activate macrophages (Kumazawa et al., 1984).

 

In vitro, Clement-Kruzel, et al. have shown that goldenseal extracts can inhibit production of TNF-a, IL-6, IL-10 and IL-12 from LPS-stimulated macrophage cells. (Clement-Kruzel et al., 2008). Berberine has also been shown to inhibit production of PGE2 and nitric oxide from stimulated macrophage cells (Lee, 2003). These studies indicate that goldenseal is a useful soothing agent and that traditional use during and following mucosal infections may be validated.
