Golden thread is a herb that has been used in Chinese history for centuries.
It is a herb high in the alkaloid berberine and this constituent is a powerful anti microbial, antiviral, antibacterial, antifungal, antiprotazoal plus more. It is also reported to have antiradiation effects.
It is yellow in colour and tastes very bitter, though it is a stonger, cheaper and more environmentally friendly alternative to goldenseal.
It can also increase bile production and is used in the Orient in cases of chronic gall bladder problems, cold sores, and to help slow the development of atherosclerosis.
It can be used in enema form to support the painful symtpoms of ulcerative colitis. Research indicates that it is hepatoprotective probably due to antioxidant properties, and can lower blood sugar and blood cholesterol levels.
