PROPERTIES:

Immuno-Stimulant, Anti-bacterial, Anti-viral, Anti-microbial, Anti-parasitic, White Blood Cell stimulant, Astringent 

INDICATIONS:

Echinacea & Goldenseal is an acute formula. Echinacea stimulates innate immunity and excites phagocytosis of the white blood cells in general circulation while Goldenseal and Yerba Mansa stimulate immunity in the respiratory tract to act more vigorously. It will help keep control over undesirable microorganisms.

Goldenseal is indicated for warm and hot immune conditions and should only be used when acute or sick. Do not use over two weeks. The key active ingredients of Goldenseal include the alkaloids hydrastine and berberine. They exhibit the antibacterial action effective against Staphylococcus aureus, Streptococcus sanguis, Escherichia coli, Pseudomonas aeruginosa. Berberine is also anti-parasitic, amoebicidal, kills giardia, inhibits smooth muscle contraction and is anti-inflammatory. It is specific as an aid for parasitic infections.

The bitter alkaloids from Goldenseal and Oregon Grape will also increase bile secretion as well as flow by relaxing the bile duct, thus aiding fat digestion. Secondarily they will increase peristalsis and therefore assist in bowel regularity.

Echinacea and Goldenseal are great aids for infections in any mucosal tissue including:

      Respiratory tract (sinus, throat, lung)

      Urinary tract (bladder, kidney, ureter, urethra)

      Digestive tract (whole length)

      Reproductive tract (male and female)

Goldenseal is becoming a threatened plant, so only organically cultivated goldenseal should be used (Herb Express uses only organically cultivated goldenseal in all of our liquid extracts).

Oregon Grape Root has actions similar to Goldenseal, but focuses more on liver cleansing and blood purification via liver function. Oregon Grape Root is another berberine source.

Yerba Mansa has actions similar to Goldenseal, but is more tonic to inflamed mucosal tissue.

Myrrh and Wild Indigo (Baptisia) are great acute white blood cell stimulants for active infections.   

CONTRA-INDICATIONS AND CAUTIONS:

Pregnancy. Diabetes. Concurrent use with Heparin to avoid antagonizing the anticoagulant activity. Do not use over two weeks in a row.The amount of licorice in here is small and should not raise high blood pressure.  

COMPLIMENTARY FORMULAS & SINGLE HERBS:

Respir-Ease/Respiratory Complex (to clear out lungs)

Mushroom Master (rebuild immunity)

Aller-Calm/Allerg-Ease (if sinus infection)

Oregano Oil (powerful anti-microbial, candida, parasites)
