About This Item

 

Full Description

Each monograph establishes national standards for assuring authenticity, purity, and quality control of the monographed botanical. Accompanying the standards is the AHP Therapeutic Compendium which provides a complete and critical review of the pharmacological and safety data currently available, including information on pharmacokinetics, pharmacodynamics, actions, medical indications, historical and modern and traditional use, structure and function claims, dosages, interactions, side effects, contraindications, toxicology, and more.

Goldenseal is one of the most widely used herbal medicines for infections of the gastro-intestinal and reproductive tracts, as well as sinuses and eyes. Despite such extensive use, little modern research has been done on its therapeutic efficacy. This monograph reports comprehensively on all of the available modern pharmacological and therapeutic research on and traditional uses of Goldenseal Root; in addition, it covers research done on berberine, one of the bioactive compounds found in Goldenseal. Information is also presented on the conservation status of this botanical, the extensive use of which has caused serious depletion of native populations.
