Organic Oregon Grape Root
Oregon Grape Root, Mahonia aquifolium, comes from an evergreen, flowering shrub that is the Oregon State flower. It has lovely yellow flowers that develop into clusters of juicy, purple fruit, hence the name. It is similar in chemical structure to goldenseal and has very similar healing properties. They both contain berberine which has been shown to stimulate the immune system and help protect against bacteria, viruses, and fungi. It also contains tannins that ease skin irritation, inflammation, and itching. Studies have shown that when Oregon grape is used in skin washes, it helps deter the overproduction of skin cells that occurs in plaque psoriasis.
