    Very good quality, using it for stomach tonic and food poisoning. I always like to powder my own whole root. It is very similar to the American Goldenseal in use. Its bitter but that’s good for the digestion. If you need it, it doesn’t even taste bad at all, as I have tried it and actually liked it! Probably if you don’t need it then it tastes awful! Your body is smart, it knows what you need if you can but figure out what to offer it..
