Goldenseal (Hydrastis canadensis) is a perennial herb native to the woodlands of North America, especially the eastern United States. It’s known for its distinctive golden-yellow root and has a long history of use in traditional Native American medicine and later in other herbal practices. 

Historically, Goldenseal was used by the indigenous peoples of North America for digestive issues, skin conditions, immune support, itchy or infected eyes, healthy mucosal linings, and improving respiratory conditions. It was also used as a general health tonic to promote well-being and vitality. It was believed to have tonic effects, helping to strengthen and invigorate the body.

Unfortunately, due to overharvesting and habitat destruction, wild Goldenseal populations have decreased, leading to conservation concerns. That’s partly because of how long Goldenseal takes to grow. It typically takes about 2 to 3 years for Goldenseal to reach maturity. By the third year, the roots of the goldenseal plant have developed sufficiently for harvesting.

As a result, sustainable cultivation practices are gaining traction, which is the case for The Wellness Way sourcing.
