Modern research shows that berberine supports healthy blood sugar, blood pressure and blood lipid levels as well as overall general health. An additional benefit is that berberine may support healthy weight management as part of a balanced diet and healthy lifestyle plan.
Berberine is an alkaloid in a number of plants, including barberry, tree turmeric, Oregon grape and goldenseal. Its history dates back 3 000 years when it was used in traditional Chinese and Indian Ayurvedic medicine. Berberine has fast become one of the most researched plant extracts and remains in the scientific spotlight, supported by 4 500 published studies.
In every capsule of Bio-Berberine® Complex, the benefits of berberine are further enhanced by 25 mg of Origine 8® – a liposome-infused, polyphenol-rich green tea extract – and 25 ug chromium, an essential trace mineral that may improve insulin sensitivity and enhance protein, carbohydrate and lipid metabolism.
Whilst berberine has a series of benefits, one of this important plant extract’s most significant benefits pertains to conditions related to metabolic syndrome. This is because berberine is one of the few compounds known to activate AMPK, which is an enzyme in the body’s cells. It’s sometimes called a “metabolic master switch” because it plays an important role in regulating metabolism. The unique way in which berberine acts makes it a useful nature-based option for supporting blood sugar balance.
