Preferred Nutrition's Berberine Helps maintain healthy glucose metabolism and cardiovascular health
Berberine is a yellow-coloured component in plants such as barberry (which this type is derived from) and goldenseal which has been used in traditional medicine in Asia for millennia. Modern research has shown Berberis vulgaris can increase the production of insulin receptors in our cell membranes, which likely accounts for why it's been found to lower blood sugar levels after meals (since insulin metabolizes sugar), reduce fasting blood sugar levels, and improve blood sugar markers. For people with Type 2 diabetes, studies also indicate Berberine can lower blood glucose, triglycerides, total cholesterol, and LDL cholesterol significantly better than a placebo, and as well or better than some medications.
