The root of goldenseal is believed to help chronic inflammation of the mucous membranes, such as those lining the throat, sinuses, and lungs. In secreting mucus, which traps and immobilizes bacteria and viruses, healthy mucous membranes serve as the body's first-line defense against intruders. When they become inflamed, however, they lose their ability to secrete mucus, and microbes are able to enter the circulatory system. Two alkaloids in goldenseal, berberine and hydrastine, are believed to contribute to the root's ability to reduce inflammation of the mucous membranes, enabling the tissues to resume their protective role.
