Info: 90 Veg. Capsules
Berberine is a yellow plant alkaloid found in plants such as goldenseal and barberry which has been used in Traditional Chinese and Ayurvedic medicine for thousands of years. Modern research has shown it can increase the production of insulin receptors in cell membranes, which likely accounts for how it's been found to lower blood sugar levels after meals (since insulin metabolizes sugar), lower fasting blood sugar levels, and improve blood sugar markers.
Product Notes:Berberine may also have cardiovascular benefits: it appears to be able to improve the cardiac function and quality of life in patients who have suffered from heart failure, with some reporting more tolerance for exercise, less fatigue, and fewer episodes of shortness of breath. Berberine also appears to decrease cholesterol levels and reduce inflammatory markers. This product is suitable for vegetarians/vegans.
