Goldenrod Herb Health Benefits

Goldenrod is an herbal remedy that has been used to treat people with medical conditions such as inflammation, urinary problems, kidney problems and other ailments for centuries.


Goldenrod contains chemicals that increase urine output, according to the University of Maryland Medical Centre, which is the reason it is used as a diuretic, to treat kidney stones and as an anti-inflammatory for the urinary tract when infection is present.


Additionally, goldenrod has been used to help heal wounds and treat muscle spasms, joint pain and even high blood pressure.


Externally, Native Americans boiled leaves and used them topically as an antiseptic and astringent for wound healing and relief from eczema, arthritis, and rheumatism.


It has properties that do make it useful topically for wound healing, eczema, arthritis, and rheumatism, and as a tea or gargle, it has properties that make it a likely valid remedy for colds, flu, sore throat, and laryngitis. 


When you use herbal remedies, be aware that they can be extremely powerful, and should you have any side effects when taking these infusions, immediately stop using the herb and consult your health practitioner right away.


Goldenrod is a hardy tenacious plant with cylindrical roots. This root structure allows the plant to bury deep into all kinds of soils.


Thus the plant grows successfully in the dry earth found in woodlands, it can grow well among bushes in waste areas, and it grows successfully on dunes and among rocks.


The hardy roots of the plant allow the plant to extend its range right up to the mountainous regions in many temperate countries.


The goldenrod possesses rounded stems that only branch at the top of the plant.


The compound called saponins found in the goldenrod herb are specifically effective against infection from the Candida fungus, which induces all kinds of yeast infections and oral thrush in the human body.


The herbal remedy made from the goldenrod is considered to be a soothing, gentle and safe remedy which is appropriate for use in treating or alleviating a number of disorders affecting the body.
