Studies show Golden seal acts as an astringent, producing a vasoconstricting—tightening of the blood vessels—effect. Golden seal’s astringent ability enables it to help tone mucus membranes, which in turn, aids stomach and intestinal disorders, prostate and vaginal complaints, and stops internal bleeding and prevents hemorrhaging. Golden seal acts as a mild decongestant and laxative, relieves excess mucus, and reduces fever and inflammation associated with glandular swelling. Golden seal increases the secretion of digestive enzymes and fluids, especially bile, which helps regulate liver and spleen functions. Golden seal is recommended for numerous gastrointestinal disorders, including colitis, enteritis, gastritis, hemorrhoids, intestinal infections, and peptic ulcers. Berberine, an isoquinoline alkaloid found in golden seal, has been studied at length in both clinical and experimental environments for its antibacterial and amebicidal properties. Furthermore, golden seal has been found to potentiate insulin and have a hypoglycemic effect which is beneficial for diabetics.
