According to Heal Naturally, nature provides a means to fight off bacterial and viral infections without producing resistant bacteria. One of those agents is Goldenseal (Hydrastis canadensis). Goldenseal has been shown in several studies to be both antibiotic and antiviral. For example: a study from the University of North Carolina illustrated how Goldenseal can be used as a lethal antibiotic.
The researchers in this study tested both raw Goldenseal and Berberine – an antibiotic component extracted from Goldenseal against various USA300 strains of MRSA. They found that while the Berberine inhibited MRSA significantly – with average minimal inhibitory concentrations (MICs) of 150 micrograms per milliliter – the Goldenseal inhibited the MRSA strains at a rate two times the rate of Berberine – with an MICs of 75 micrograms per milliliter. This last point confirms that whole powdered Goldenseal is preferable to berberine extract. Read Article from Heal Naturally
