Goldenrod is most often used as a supplement for improving urinary health and reducing inflammation.
Goldenrod supplies many beneficial plant compounds, including saponins and flavonoid antioxidants like quercetin and kaempferol.
Saponins are plant compounds linked to many health benefits. They may particularly be effective in inhibiting the growth of harmful bacteria and yeast like Candida albicans.
Candida albicans is a fungus that can cause vaginal yeast infections, as well as infections in other parts of the body.
The flavonoid antioxidants quercetin and kaempferol in goldenrod help protect your cells from damage caused by unstable molecules called free radicals.
