Berberine is derived from the plant Berberis aristata, and is supplied as an extract as berberine sulfate. Berberine has traditionally been used to support regular and normal bowel function in healthy individuals.
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).

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.
