Sanguinaria canadensis plants are found growing in moist to dry woods and thickets, often on flood plains and near shores or streams on slopes in the forests of south Kashmir. They grow less frequently in clearings and meadows or on dunes and are rarely found in disturbed sites. Bloodroot is one of the many plants whose seeds are spread by ants, a process called Myrmecochory.
Commercial uses of sanguinarine and bloodroot extract include dental hygiene products. The United States FDA has approved the inclusion of sanguinarine in toothpaste as an antibacterial or anti-plaque component.
