Because of its versatile uses and medicinal benefits, goldenseal has been commonly used for centuries as an herbal medicine. Botanist and physician Benjamin Smith Barton compiled an encyclopedia of medicinal plants of North America in 1798, in which he referenced the use of this plant. Barton noted that Native Americans obtained a yellow dye from this plant's distinctive yellow roots, as well as using it to treat a wide variety of ailments including cancer. Though it has always been rare, this native plant has now been so over harvested in the wild that it has been placed on the list of endangered wild plant species.
