The active ingredient in our metabolic support is Berberine.
Berberine is a potent alkaloid derived from the Berberis aristata plant. This plant was initially used as an antibiotic drug.
In recent years the effects of Berberine on lowering blood sugars has been studied. In a study published in JCEM: one hundred sixteen patients with type 2 diabetes and dyslipidemia were randomly allocated to receive Berberine (1.0g daily) and the placebo for 3 months. Results: in the Berberine group, fasting and postload plasma glucose decreased from 7.0 ± 0.8 to 5.6 ± 0.9 and from 12 ± 2.7 to 8.9 ± 2.8 mm/liter, HbA1c from 7.5 ± 1.0% to 6.6 ± 0.7%.
This supplement is an alternative therapy for our borderline Diabetics or adjunct therapy to patients already on glucose lowering medication.
