There are hundreds of scientific and medical studies on the positive benefits of Berberine. Here are just a few to get you started on your quest for knowledge!
To receive the maximum beneficial effect we recommend you take your Berberine 20-30 minutes prior to a meal, 2 to 3 times daily. However, Berberine like many supplements can cause an upset stomach and you may find it easier on your stomach to take it immediately after your meal.
Unlike the far cheaper Berberine HCL most manufacturers use, our Berberine Sulfate can provide an additional positive benefit to your body. Once the sulfate group is cleaved from our revolutionary Berberine Sulfate, it can participate in phase II detoxification conjugation reactions in the liver.
For most people Berberine yields an improvement in their glucose levels after a few weeks of regular use. Every individual is different however and your results may vary. Our advice is to stay committed to Berberine for at least 30 days and you should begin to see positive improvements in blood sugar, cholesterol, and triglyceride levels in due time. One interesting thing to note about Berberine is that it is “normoglycemic” which means that it tends to provide a bigger benefit to individuals whose blood sugar levels are further than normal than it does to those whose blood sugar levels are near normal.
What makes Berberine special and distinguishes it from other supplements?
Berberine is favored among herbalists because for generations it appears to have helped support overall cardiovascular health. However, what makes Berberine special and distinguishes it from other supplements is that it has shown itself to support healthy cholesterol and glucose levels already within the normal range. This dual action sets Berberine apart as other supplements focus on either cholesterol or glucose support only. With Berberine you are giving your heart and cardiovascular system a double dose of herbal love.
Rich History of Traditional Medicine Uses Berberine is naturally found in the stems, bark and roots of plants with rich herbal medicine traditions. Berberine containing herbals have found a place in traditional health practices around the world. Goldenseal, for instance, was popular in Native American traditions. Chinese Goldthread remains a valued ingredient in traditional Chinese herbal preparations. Other natural sources of Berberine include Hydrastis Canadensis (goldenseal), Berberis vulgaris (barberry), Berberis aquifolium (Oregon grape) and Berberis aristata (Indian Barberry). Our Berberine is naturally extracted from the roots of Berberis aristata (Indian Barberry or Tree Turmeric) which is considered to be the best, most potent source. Berberine is favored among herbalists because for generations it appears to have helped support overall cardiovascular health. However, what makes Berberine special and distinguishes it from other supplements is that it has shown itself to support healthy cholesterol and glucose levels already within the normal range.

More Active Form LEAN Nutraceuticals Berberine capsules deliver a guaranteed 500 mg of pure Berberine Sulfate, naturally derived from berberis aristata (Indian barberry or tree turmeric). Unlike the less active HCl form, our Berberine Sulfate provides enhanced performance. This is because once the sulfate group is cleaved from Berberine Sulfate, it can participate in phase II detoxification conjugation reactions in the liver. Which the HCL form cannot. So there is an additional minor, added value when using our Berberine Sulfate form.

Hi Kathy... Yes, I am very satisfied with my Berberine. It has really helped in the control of my blood sugar.
I checked my sugar and I was at 250. I took 2 pills and it went down 60 points in an hour and 100 points in an hour and a half. Will be buying more.
I often call myself an alien because things that other people can eat, do or use is forbidden to me. I can't take *any* pill-form medication in existence, because the cellulose binding (Micro Crystalline Cellulose - **WOOD PULP**) is quite literally poison to me. Im forced to have all medications compounded into capsules without added cellulose. Around February, I was accidentally given a thyroid medication containing cellulose. And from that one pill, I had weeks of life threatening problems, but when the effects of that one pill should have faded, I was still left with the problems that Id been bothered with for months. In the end, I found that it was my Metformin that was continuing the staggering, brain fog and other truly horrible symptoms. I knew I had to find a way off that vital medication, but I don't switch medications easily. I researched *all* meds but failed to find anything I knew was safe for me. But from the very first search, Berberine kept coming up. I decided to give Berberine a try until I could find a "real" alternative prescription medicine. I ordered Berberine and took my first two capsules. That week, my numbers (growing higher by the day on the Metformin) didn't soar. The following week only brought further good news. Now, Im about a month on the Berberine, tolerating it well, with numbers far better than Ive seen since Christmas last year. Best part: *Most* of the horrible symptoms (racing heart, extra heartbeat, breathing difficulties, staggering, brain fog, panic attacks, sleep issues, unwarranted anger.) have disappeared or are *greatly* eased. Now, Im very happy to have Berberine. For the first time in years, Im beginning to feel human instead of a sickly alien. I realize this review is wordy. But a simple I like it doesnt cut it. Seriously. I feel finding Berberine may have saved my life. [Personal Disclaimer: My case is extreme. Please consult with your doctor before changing *any* prescribed medications of your own accord. I did, ...
