Used for stomach ulcers, gastroesophageal reflux disease (GERD), stomach upsets, as a bitter tonic, to treat infections, and to cleanse the bowels. It is also the Oregon, USA State flower!
It shares many of the medicinal properties of goldenseal, but because goldenseal is close to extinction, many herbalists have begun to use Oregon grape root in their treatments instead. And like goldenseal, it should be used on an ‘as needed’ basis. This is why it is one of several ingredients in our capsules. A number of our customers have taken it every day for years. However, if you constantly took doses of grape root alone you will ultimately damage your intestinal probiotics.
It is renowned among herbalists for its ability to stimulate liver function, improve the flow of bile, and for blood cleansing. Uses have traditionally included treating both liver congestion and infectious conditions of the stomach and intestines. Another benefit is its functioning as an antimicrobial.The bitterness of this herb also has a positive effect on the digestive tract. It has a sedative effect on the smooth muscles lining it and stimulates the flow of bile which loosens waste in the digestive tract and helps prevent a myriad of complications. Namely; constipation, stomach cramps, diverticulosis, hemorrhoids, gallbladder disease, and irritable bowel syndrome.
