Sanguinarea canadensis (Bloodroot)

The Sanguinarea canadensis flower resembles a water lily and has 8 to 16 white petals around a golden center. The rhizomes contain a red juice, thus explaining its name. Used for a long time by native North American tribes, modern herbalism also prizes its expectorant attributes that promote coughing and clear up the mucus in the respirator tract. Bloodroot�s antibacterial and antiplaque properties, makes it a great toothpaste.
