If you are looking for goldenseal root powder in bulk you should really consider Starwest Botanicals. They are one of the biggest and trusted herb suppliers in the world. This is personally where I buy mine.
A lot of goldenseal supplements have so little goldenseal in it, you won’t really get any of the herb’s health benefits taking it. Goldenseal is known as a “cure all” because of all the ailments and sicknesses it helps fight. Just some of the problems it can help with is:
- All diseased states of the digestive system
- Stomach disorders and acute inflammations
- Open sores, eczema, all skin diseases
- Liver problems
- Tonsillitis and all throat problems
- Improve appetite and aid in digestion
- Bowel and bladder issues
- Good for your spleen, kidney and pancreas
- Sinus issues
- And a lot more
It truly is one of the most wonderful remedies in the entire herbal kingdom and one you should have on hand at all times. The powder is a great way to get all its benefits and we’ll take a look at bulk prices from Starwest (and a few other ways to take it).
Price varies depending on quality, amount and type.
USDA Organic Goldenseal Root Powder: $166.67 per lb
Goldenseal is a rare herb and you will have a hard time finding better quality than this. It USDA certified (grown and cultivated in the most ideal manner) and one of the best ways to get the healing and health benefits of the herb. To take, you just have add 1/4th teaspoon to a glass of hot water, let is dissolve and drink. A good time to take is when you wake up and one hour before lunch and dinner.
Goldenseal Root Powder Wildcrafted: $118.58 per lb, $31.58 per 1/4 lb
USDA Organic is grown under human supervision and grown on unpolluted lands; these herbs are pampered. Wildcrafted is grown in nature without any human interaction. Wildcrafted is cheaper because there is no growing costs or anything like that. You just find it and harvest it.
It’s a good alternative if you don’t wish to spend the extra on organic and is available in 1/4 pound. The 1/4 pound of USDA Organic, mentioned above, is sold out.
USDA Organic Goldenseal Leaf Powder: $79.83 per lb, $22.33 per 1/4 lb
Most of the medicinal value in goldenseal comes from the root. The leaves have some value, just not nearly as much. If you wish to use the leaves and leaf powder, use externally for skin problems and things of that nature; the root is what you want to ingest and use internally.
Other Goldenseal Options
You must likely came here looking for goldenseal powder but there are other versions available that can help you out tremendously.
Goldenseal Alcohol Free Extract: $90.00 for 4 oz., $25.00 for 1 oz: Extracts are an extremely easy and convenient way to take goldenseal. You simply just add 10 to 20 drops to water or juice and enjoy.
UJSDA Organic Goldenseal Extract: $83.17 for 4 oz., 23.33 for 1 oz: The main difference between this extract and the extract above is the use of alcohol. The alcohol used is in this extract is completely organic, and so is the entire product.
Goldenseal Root Capsules: $142.50 for 500, $31.88 for 100: Capsules are a very popular way to take herbs. They don’t take action as fast as extracts but are the most convenient herbal option. You only need to take 1 to 2 capsules daily.
USDA Organic Goldenseal Root C/S: $166.67 per 1 lb, 36.58 per 1/4 pound: C/S just means cut and shifted. Having the root like this gives you a lot of options and you can make infusions, decoctions, teas and all other stuff. I created a guide on how to prepare herbs which you can access by clicking below

Any Dangers Involved?
Goldenseal is a pretty potent herb and you shouldn’t take for prolonged use without giving yourself rest. Pregnant women should avoid. Cut the dosage in half if giving to a child, weak or debilitated people and the elderly.
If you take the normal amount recommended and give yourself breaks from time to time, you will be fine. Compared to chemical medicines and prescriptions it is WAY safer to use. In fact, all herbs are.
Hope This Helped!
