Goldenrod is used to tighten the urinary tract and detoxify the kidneys. Clinical animal studies suggest that the goldenrod can reduce inflammation and fight infections, and is a diuretic.
Effective plants include Solidago species, not Verbascum densiflorum. If you are allergic to ragweed, chrysanthemums, marigolds, and others, you should avoid taking a gold rod.
Goldenrod is often taken as a tea or dye.
