    The basics

    Berberine is a naturally occurring alkaloid compound in various plants, including the barberry shrub.

    It is a powerful herbal medicine used by Functional medicine practitioners, most notably for its potential role in improving gut health.
    It is also a powerful tool in managing blood sugar levels and promoting cardiovascular health.

    The need to know

    What are the benefits?

    Gut health & sugar stabiliser

    • Lowers blood sugar comparable to metformin
    • Weight loss and improved gut health, reduces cholesterol
    • Exercise performance and longevity

    The Science

    Berberine has been shown to activate an enzyme called AMP-activated protein kinase (AMPK) inside body cells. This enzyme is sometimes referred to as a "metabolic master switch" because it plays an essential role in regulating metabolism. Through this activation, berberine may help improve insulin sensitivity, promote glucose uptake in cells, and reduce glucose production in the liver.

    In terms of cardiovascular benefits, berberine's cholesterol-lowering effects are believed to be mediated through its impact on the gut microbiota and its ability to reduce the absorption of cholesterol from the gut.

    Berberine's antimicrobial action arises from its ability to interfere with the adhesion of pathogens to host cells, disrupting their biofilm formation and interrupting their cellular communication.

    How will I know its working?

    Successful use of berberine might manifest as more stabilized blood sugar levels, reduced cholesterol levels, and improved overall cardiovascular health. Additionally, those taking berberine for its antimicrobial properties might note a reduction in infections or related symptoms.

    When to take it?

    Take 1 capsule daily with food and water, unless specified otherwise on the sachet.
