Goldenseal is an herbal supplement often claimed to be beneficial for treating various conditions (such as allergies or infections) and for masking illicit substances during urine drug testing. Although the plant contains several compounds that may have medicinal properties, there is concern that these active compounds are too poorly absorbed to have significant medicinal effects when the product is taken by mouth. There is very little evidence to suggest that this herb really works for any use.
