Berberine 200 mg supplement contains berberine in an exclusive and effective formula.

Research reveals anti-fungal and anti-bacterial properties.

Each capsule is made with cellulose sourced from vegetables‚ and is preservative-free.
This supplement is hypoallergenic and contains no wheat‚ milk‚ corn‚ pork‚ beef‚ soy‚ or other commonly recognized allergens. Berberine is also free of synthetic chemicals—such as flow agents or surfactants—which can hinder the bioavailability of nutritional supplements‚ making it harder for your body to absorb and benefit from them.

Berberine is an alkaloid salt derived from the plant Berberis aristata . Its extract form is known as berberine sulfate.

This ingredient has traditionally been used in Chinese medicine to support regular‚ normal bowel function in healthy individuals. It has also been associated with treating certain intestinal disorders.

If you’re suffering from bacterial or traveler’s diarrhea‚ this herb can benefit you. Studies also indicate that berberine may contribute to lowering excessively high cholesterol and triglyceride levels‚ without the typical side effects of statins.

Berberine or Berberis is a bitter-tasting, yellow, plant alkaloid with a long history of medicinal use in Chinese and Ayurvedic medicine.

Clinical trials have been conducted using Berberine. Results point to treatment of trachomas (eye infections), bacterial diarrhea, and leishmaniasis (parasitic disease). Berberis has also shown antimicrobial activity. Berberis may be used to counteract effects of pathogenic bacteria, viruses, fungi, protozoans, helminths (worms), and chlamydia (STD).

Berberis Research Update

Berberine, a natural product, induces G1-phase cell cycle arrest and caspase-3-dependent apoptosis in human prostate carcinoma cells.
Berberine, a naturally occurring isoquinoline alkaloid, has been shown to possess anti-inflammatory and anti-tumor properties in some in vitro systems. In vitro treatment of androgen-insensitive (DU145 and PC-3) and androgen-sensitive (LNCaP) prostate cancer cells with berberine inhibited cell proliferation and induced cell death in a dose-dependent and time-dependent manner. The effectiveness of berberine in checking the growth of androgen-insensitive, as well as androgen-sensitive, prostate cancer cells without affecting the growth of normal prostate epithelial cells indicates that it may be a promising candidate for prostate cancer therapy.

Antimicrobial activity of berberine alone and in combination with ampicillin or oxacillin against methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus.

Methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus (MRSA) bacteria have been responsible for substantial morbidity and mortality in hospitals because they usually have multidrug resistance. Some natural products are candidates as new antibiotic substances. In this study they investigated the antimicrobial activity of Nerberine, the main antibacterial substance of Coptidis rhizoma (Coptis chinensis Franch) and Phellodendri cortex (Phellodendron amurense Ruprecht), against clinical isolates of MRSA, and the effects of berberine on the adhesion to MRSA and intracellular invasion into human gingival fibroblasts (HGFs).

Berberine showed antimicrobial activity against all tested strains of MRSA. These results suggest that berberine may have antimicrobial activity and the potential to restore the effectiveness of beta-lactam antibiotics against MRSA, and inhibit the MRSA adhesion and intracellular invasion in HGFs.

Berberine & Diabetes

Chinese, Korean, & Australian scientists at Garvan Institute in Sydney, Australia, show that Berberine can be helpful for Diabetes. Their studes using animal models show that berberine acts in part by activating an enzyme in the muscle and liver that is involved in improving sensitivity of the tissue to insulin which, in turn, helps lower blood sugar levels. Berberine shows that it can help reduce body weight as well. "Berberine has been used for decades, if not centuries, with few reported side effects. Given the limitations of existing medicines we are excited to have evidence that berberine may be a helpful new treatment for type 2 diabetes," they say.

Berberine use for blood sugar, cholesterol, & blood pressure regulation.

Berberine may be helpful in maintaining healthy blood sugar and cholesterol levels in those with type 2 diabetes. Dr. Guang Ning, of Shanghai Jiao Tong University School of Medicine in Shanghai and colleagues randomized 116 diabetes patients to receive one gram of Berberine daily or placebo for 3 months. Average hemoglobin A1C -- a measure of long-term blood sugar control -- dropped from 7.5 percent to 6.6 percent in those taking berberine supplements.

People taking berberine also showed significant reductions in total and "bad" LDL cholesterol. Blood pressure also fell in patients taking berberine. Patients on berberine lost 2.3 kilograms (5.1 pounds), on average, compared to 1.3 kilograms (2.9 pounds) for the placebo group.
