Golden Seal/Parthenium Extract is a combination of two herbs that help support and strengthen the immune system. Golden Seal/Parthenium Extract provides additional nutrition to the body helping cleanse and strengthen it, and focuses its action on stimulating the immune system. Golden seal and parthenium roots are well-known for their antibiotic properties. They are beneficial for treating a variety of symptoms, including fighting infection, both viral and bacterial.

Golden seal's numerous uses are attributed to its antibiotic, anti-inflammatory and astringent properties. Golden seal soothes irritated mucus membranes aiding the eyes, ears, nose and throat. Taken at the first signs of respiratory problems, colds or flu, golden seal may help prevent further symptoms from developing. Golden seal may be used to help reduce fevers, and relieve congestion and excess mucous.

Parthenium root is a close relative to echinacea containing many of the same medicinal properties. Parthenium contains substances that helps soothe inflamed and irritated tissues, and is beneficial for treating fatigue, respiratory infections, tonsillitis and swollen glands. Parthenium may also be used to treat gastrointestinal infections and various skin conditions, including wounds.

(Golden seal should not be used for extended periods or by individuals with hypoglycemia and women who are pregnant.)

Take 1/2 teaspoon either with a glass of water or directly under the tongue three times a day.
