All plants possess many kinds of nutrients, which account for a wide variety of health benefits from the plant kingdom. Members of the echinacea genus, for example, contain polysaccharides, fatty acids and glycosides that promote optimal function of the immune system. Echinacea is used by herbalists to help maintain the normal body function of clearing toxins and promoting normal resistance. Its large array of benefits encourage its use for diverse needs.
Golden seal root (Hydrastis canadensis), along with echinacea, has long been a staple of Native American cultures. It contains powerful alkaloids like berberine and hydrastine to help the body tackle the job of maintaining strong immunity. It has become one of the most popular herbs in America today. Golden seal also has a wide range of components that benefit the digestive, circulatory, respiratory and glandular systems.
Since each herb in this formula is highly compatible, total effectiveness is enhanced. Be sure to have plenty on hand when the need arises.
* Pregnant women should consult a health professional before taking golden seal, since it may influence uterine muscles.
Are You Getting the Real Thing?
As demand continues to rise for echinacea and golden seal, past experience shows that some companies may be tempted to adulterate their products with alternative, less expensive herbs (that are not easily detected), then label them as "pure" herbs.
Nature's Sunshine requires stringent inspection of herbs and their physiologically active ingredients. For example, berberine is the most easily detected alkaloid in golden seal because of its yellow color. Hydrastine, on the other hand, requires more careful analysis and is an excellent marker to identify golden seal.
If a company uses Oregon grape to boost the berberine content of its "golden seal" product, the hydrastine content will be lacking since it is peculiar to golden seal.
The bottom line? Use only Nature's Sunshine if you want the highest quality and the greatest benefits from your nutritional supplements!
