Welcome to the Goldenseal Library!!

This site has been developed as a part of our United States Department of Agriculture and National Institutes of Health – National Center for Complementary and Alternative Medicine funded research involving goldenseal.  It is not intended to provide medical advice but rather to serve as a clearing house for science based information regarding goldenseal and/or its isolated compounds, particularly berberine.  It is hoped this effort will foster knowledge-sharing among researchers, regulators, health care professionals and consumers resulting in a greater awareness of goldenseal’s potential effect on body function.  The data will be updated on a monthly basis so check back often for the latest!!
