Goldenseal is a perennial North American native plant known for its ability to "enhance seasonal resistance." Due to its popularity and the loss of habitat, goldenseal is listed in various states as threatened or endangered. We sell only certified organic cultivated goldenseal.

Goldenseal root has an earthy, bitter flavor and a bright yellow color.

Suggested Use

To make a goldenseal root infusion, pour one cup boiling water over 1/2 teaspoon powdered goldenseal, stir well and let stand for 10 minutes.

Goldenseal is historically most associated with the mucous membranes with which it has an affinity. It was valued as a cooling, bitter tonic and used in small amounts to promote overall strengthening of tissues. It was also combined with other herbs in various bitters recipes.

Today, goldenseal is best known for its ability to enhance seasonal resistance. It can be used as an infusion (not very tasty), tincture or encapsulated.

Goldenseal leaf is less often used than root and is most often used in tea form, making a less bitter tea than the root. Its actions are similar but it is a milder, less powerful herb than the root, having much lower levels of the important constituents.


Not to be used during pregnancy.

Hydrazine (1.5 to 4%) and berberine (1 to 6%), are the most significant alkaloids present in the root with lesser amounts of canadine, berberastine, candaline and hydrastinine present.

Goldenseal root powder

Posted by herbgirlz on Aug 05, 2014 | Verified Purchase

I am so happy that I ordered this product, I've been trying to find a high quality, pure goldenseal root for a very long time. Most products available in capsules and tincture are not pure root or bulked up with stems and arial parts, and have a characteristic greenish tinge. Frontier, thankfully, has one of the best available. Highly recommended -- and worth every penny.

Thanks for your feedback!

Very High Quality

This is a beautiful golden color. As far as i can tell, over the years,it's impossible to find this quality in capsules. I really think it's important to buy quality goldenseal if you have and issue that requires it. I hesitated for a while because of the price, but even 4 oz goes along way.
