iherb上有卖的。Goldenseal, 品牌nature's answer。不是国内黄连噢
Goldenseal root is a popular herb from North America that works as a powerful herbal antibiotic and immune system enhancer. Goldenseal is a good source of vitamins A, C, E, & B-complex and minerals such as calcium, iron and manganese. It contains potent anti-bacterial, anti-microbial, anti-fungal, and anti-inflammatory properties as well as alkaloids that are known to be an effective treatment for diarrhea and stomach problems that are caused by influenza or food poisoning.
It is also very helpful for other digestive problems such as peptic ulcers, gastritis, dyspepsia, and colitis. Goldenseal helps to increase digestive enzymes and significantly enhances liver and spleen functions. It is an amazing infection fighter and is known to be particularly useful at treating sinus, respiratory, mouth, throat, bladder, yeast, and urinary tact infections.
It is also an effective remedy for hemorrhoids, athletes foot, canker sores, and to help stop heavy menstrual bleeding. Goldenseal is an essential herb during cold and flu season as it can help to prevent and relieve the symptoms of colds, flu, fevers, bronchitis, heavy congestion, and even pneumonia. It is also helpful against hay fever, laryngitis, cystitis, hepatitis, and liver disease.
Externally, a wash can be made with goldenseal extract to help treat conjunctivitis and inflamed eyelids. A mouthwash can also be made and used as a gargle for sore throats and gum infections and goldenseal creams/ointments are very effective for treating eczema, ringworm, boils, cuts, and rashes. Goldenseal is often combined with other herbs including Echinacea which work synergistically and enhance both of their healing properties together.
Goldenseal can be found online or at your local health food store in capsule, tincture, extract, tea, mouthwash, and cream form. It should only be used for a week or two at a time in order to maintain its effectiveness within the body.
