Goldenseal (Hydrastis Canadensis) is a perennial herb in the Buttercup family that may reach a height of 6 to 12 inches and often has three maple-like, glossy-green leaves on each branch. At the end of the stem, a single, white flower with yellow stamens, a tight cluster of red berries, and a pair of five-lobed stem leaves, all arising from a yellow underground rhizome. Each crimson berry contains a persistent shape and one or two black, gleaming seeds.
The rhizome has a bitter taste, and they appear to be twisting and wrinkly in appearance. Like wide other varieties in the buttercup genus, the flower is devoid of petals.
There are many other names for this plant that you may refer to it. It is commonly known as Eye-balm, Orangeroot, Yellow puccoon, Jaundice root, Golden root, Eye root, and Indian plant. The plant derives its popular name from the thick yellow rhizome that grows from the base of the plant. You may see them growing in moist, rich, and hardwood forests. The growth habit of this plant is a little out of the ordinary. It requires phases of dormancy as well as plenty of shade.
It thrives on rich, wet, loamy, well-drained soil with adequate air and water circulation. You may propagate this plant through seed, rhizomes, or roots. The manner of cultivation may also significantly impact the length of time it takes for this plant to grow. If you opt to develop your plant through seeds, it might require somewhere between 5 to 6 years to see it mature. On the other hand, using rhizomes may reduce the duration to three years.
It is a small plant that is native to North America. This plant has become scarcer due to overharvesting and habitat loss, but the plant is now commercially grown in the United States. Native Americans use it as a medicinal plant for treating skin disorders, ulcers, fevers, and other variety of health conditions. They also use it as a yellow dye, astringent, and insect repellent. Furthermore, the anti-inflammatory and antibacterial activities of this plant are well-known.
You may also often use this plant to prevent or cure upper respiratory tract infections and the common cold, making it a traditional medicine source. This plant may even aid people with type 2 diabetes since it contains berberine, which may help decrease blood sugar levels. Such is the extensive range of benefits that this plant offers. However, some people use its benefits for unlawful purposes. They may abuse goldenseal extract, which may hide the usage of illegal drugs during urine testing.
