BERBERINE COMPLEX OFFERS TRADITIONAL GASTROINTESTINAL SUPPORT

This product aids in regulating blood sugar levels and improving insulin sensitivity, manages cholesterol levels, supports weight loss efforts, possesses anti-inflammatory and antimicrobial properties for gut health, and shows potential neuroprotective effects. 

How It Works

Berberine is a constituent of some plants including Barberry (Berberis vulgaris), Oregon Grape (Berberis aquifolium), and Goldenseal (Hydrastis canadensis). Berberine Complex contains extracts of berberine-containing plants: barberry, Oregon grape, and goldenseal. In addition to berberine, Goldenseal extract also contains other alkaloids such as hydrastine. Traditional use of herbs and extracts often relies on the complex nature of plants rather than isolated bioactive compounds. Berberine Complex is intended for traditional gastrointestinal support.

Goldenseal, which contains alkaloids including berberine, has been traditionally used in North America for gastrointestinal support. Mechanistic studies in animals and cell culture models suggest berberine may modulate gut microbiota by binding to the DNA of bacteria (1-3).

In animal and cell culture studies, berberine has demonstrated an ability to support the intestinal microenvironment (1). In a human Caco-2 cell model, berberine maintained tight junctions and supported epithelial barrier function (4).
