Bloodroot root (sanguinaria canadensis)Latin Name: Sanguinaria canadensis
Common Names: Bloodroot root
Bloodroot is actually an herb; despite its name. That is to say, it is a perennial that grows above the ground with a non-woody stem. However, it is the bloodroot root that is the most useful; also known as sanguinaria canadensis, it is one of the many natural herbs and other botanical products available through Starwest Botanicals, one of the leading bulk herbs suppliers on the World Wide Web.
The flowering part of bloodroot root is native to central and eastern North America from Canada to the Gulf of Mexico. Distantly related to stinging nettles (which sanguinaria canadensis resembles), it is unique in that it is pollinated not by bees or even birds, but by ants, which carry home the seeds to their nests, where they germinate. Because of its color, sanguinaria canadensis has been used as dye clothing.
Organic herbs may be very helpful and conducive to good health; however, used carelessly, many dried herbs and roots can be harmful and even toxic.
Starwest Botanicals strongly recommends that people planning to use any herbal or root extract consult with a licensed naturopathic doctor before using such a product; in addition, we will be happy top answer questions you may have regarding any product we sell.
Warning: Not to be used during pregnancy. May cause nausea and vomiting.
