Golden Seal (
Hydrastis canadensis) is an endangered herb and as
a result is very expensive and often substituted by other herbs. The
substituted herbs usually contain the substance berberine which provides
the yellow color, but they do not contain hydrastine which is unique to
Golden Seal. Only HPLC enables this differentiation to be made.
MediHerb only buys cultivated Golden Seal to ensure long term
sustainability of the herb. MediHerb tests each batch of Golden Seal raw
material and finished product to ensure the claimed levels of
hydrastine and berberine are present. Using HPLC, MediHerb is able to

berberine-containing species. The top trace is an example of
substitution where a professional product being sold in Australia as
Indian Golden Seal matched the trace of
