For health purposes, what is a safe amount of goldenseal tea to drink? Can you drink it over a long period of time?


Hi Ron and thanks for your question about Goldenseal Tea.

Goldenseal Tea - How Much is Safe?

Goldenseal tea is a popular herbal tea or tisane and is used to treat a variety of conditions.

If you take it for 'too long' it can reduce the absorption of Vitamin B into the body - so you would want to go with even intervals of on and off the goldenseal tea.

Say 2 weeks on and 2 weeks off. This way your body gets all the benefits of the goldenseal and does not become vitamin B deprived.

You should not take goldenseal tea if you are preganant either. (not for you Ron, but maybe some ladies are reading)

We have two great articles on Goldenseal Tea you can read them via the links here.

The article Goldenseal Herb contains a recipe for making goldenseal tea at home too.

I hope this helps.
