Additional product info:
Goldenseal (dried root and rhizome) at 0.6-3 grams per day is traditionally used in Herbal Medicine to help alleviate infectious and inflammatory conditions of the digestive tract such as gastritis, as a bitter to aid digestion, as a bitter to increase appetite, to help relieve digestive disturbances such as dyspepsia and as a mild laxative (1).*

To evaluate the antisecretory activity of berberine sulfate (BS), 165 adult patients with acute diarrhea due to enterotoxigenic Escherichia coli (ETEC) and Vibrio cholerae were studied in randomized controlled trials. In patients with ETEC diarrhea who received 400 mg of BS in a single oral dose, the mean stool volumes were significantly less than those of the controls during three consecutive 8-hr periods after treatment. At 24 hr after treatment, significantly more patients who were treated with BS and had ETEC diarrhea stopped having diarrhea as compared with the controls. In patients with cholera who received 400 mg of BS, the mean 8-hr stool volume during the second 8-hr period after treatment declined to 2.22 liters, which was significantly less than the 2.79 liters found in the controls. These results indicated that BS is an effective and safe antisecretory treatment for ETEC diarrhea, whereas the activity against cholera is slight and not additive with tetracycline (2).*
