What is Berberine?

An alkaloid derived from a number of plants, berberine is a component of goldenseal (Hydrastis canadensis), California poppy (Eschscholzia californica), barberry (Berberis vulgaris) and Indian barberry (Berberis aristata). Found in the roots, bark and stems of these and other botanicals, the bitter yellow compound has been long valued in both Chinese and Ayurvedic wellness systems for its associations with a wide array of health benefits, many of which have undergone scientific investigations in recent decades. **

Numerous studies have confirmed that berberine has a range of different health-enhancing antimicrobial, antibiotic, antioxidant and inflammation-regulating properties. The compound has been extensively investigated for its effects on various aspects of cardiovascular wellness, with research showing that it aids in maintaining both blood sugar (glucose) and blood lipid (cholesterol) levels that are already in a desirable range. Through these two key actions, the alkaloid helps to uphold heart health and overall cardiovascular and circulatory wellness. **

Researchers have also found that berberine, in part due to its inflammation-modulating attributes, optimizes digestive health and comfort. Its anti-bacterial properties are further believed to help with diarrhea management and issues related to intestinal parasites. **

Berberine’s antioxidant activity is believed to exert a neuroprotective effect, promoting healthy cognitive function. In influencing serotonin levels, it may further support a healthy mood. Berberine also supports immune system health and normal immune responses. Some investigations have even uncovered possible weight management and bone health applications, suggesting the compound’s potential in other wellness areas.**

Berberine Supplements
