What is Berberine?
Berberine is a plant alkaloid that is known for its bright yellow color, and is found in plants such as goldenseal and barberry. It has been used for thousands of years in ancient health and wellness practices. Berberine is difficult to find in food sources, so it is best to take berberine in with a high-potency supplement. Our Berberine Extract is a premium herbal supplement available in an extra-strength formula. It delivers pure and natural berberine in an easy-to-digest vegetable capsule so you can receive its many benefits, such as blood sugar and cardiovascular support.*
What does Berberine do?
Berberine is a powerful substance that has many benefits. It is best known for its ability to balance and maintain healthy blood sugar levels. Berberine also helps calm inflammation, has antioxidant properties, and supports cardiovascular and immune system health. Berberine is also a powerful AMPK activator. AMPK is known as the “metabolic master switch.” Our berberine supplement delivers 1200 mg of pure and natural berberine to support your health and wellness.*
Berberine connects with molecular targets within your cells, which helps it activate an enzyme called AMPK. This enzyme plays an integral role in regulating metabolism. AMPK is also known as the “metabolic master switch” and is found in many muscles and organs throughout the body.*
Berberine helps your body maintain healthy blood sugar balance and metabolism. Berberine also helps increase the effectiveness of the hormone that regulates your blood sugar. Out-of-balance blood sugar levels may cause headaches, fatigue, and other issues.*
Berberine helps support heart health and cardiovascular health by helping maintain balanced triglyceride and LDL levels. This is known as the “bad” cholesterol in the body. Berberine may also help lower blood pressure.*
Berberine can also be a potent antioxidant, providing anti-inflammatory support to cells. Antioxidants help scavenge damaging free-radicals in the body that you encounter during daily life and rid the body of harmful toxins.*

*UPDATE*So originally this cause a lot of gas and felt it was always stuck in my throat . I am 1.5 weeks in and I will say that symptom subsided . In addition I have lost 7.5 pounds in just that short time . Amazing ! Definitely recommend for my PCOS girls .I just began taking this product so I can’t really review its efficacy however something I’ve immediately noticed is this product gets stuck in my throat . I don’t know if it’s genuinely there or if it’s just a sensation but no matter how much water I drink it feels as though it’s lodged in my throat . The feeling last the entire day and never subsides . It feels as though there is a fist in my throat constantly .
I have been taking this product for 4 weeks straight and eating my regular diet. I didn’t intentionally change anything with the foods I eat. I notice while taking this product 2 weeks in, I didn’t crave chocolate and sweets as I normally would have. I no longer have the urge to leverage will power to combat cravings. This product helps curve them so I don’t crave sweets at all. My weight has trended down over the weeks and it has stayed down. I have not noticed any negative side effects since starting. The product is performing better than I expected.
I wanted to try this because I briefly needed to take Metformin, but didn't tolerate it very well. Thankfully I had no side effects (even at the 3 a day). I want to ensure I don't have to take Metformin again.
I've been taking Berberine for several years now to regulate my blood sugars. Most brands recommend taking a their supplements twice a day. I ordered from this company because they actually recommend the 500 mg capsules, 3 times a day. This makes sense to me to maintain a constant supply of the supplement in your system. I'm happy to say that my blood sugars are within very acceptable ranges & stay there.
Works better for me than prescriptions
