Goldenseal is a woody herb native to northeastern North America, though it has been on the endangered plants list since 1991. The plant has a long history of medicinal use among the Native American tribes, such as the Iroquois and Algonquin, as an antibiotic and treatment for colds and various stomach and digestive complaints. More recently, it has gained a reputation as an immune system enhancer, though more research is needed to confirm those claims. The active constituents in goldenseal include berberine, which has proven to be an effective broad spectrum antibiotic when extracted from the roots and leaves of the goldenseal plant. One of the most prevalent myths surrounding goldenseal is that it can mask urine tests for illicit drugs such as those derived from opium and morphine; this is absolutely false. In fact some studies have shown that it can in fact help promote a false positive reading.
