In the fast pace lifestyles of today, some are quick in prescribing medications. We want to either prevent certain diseases or to get to results very quickly. Therefore, we might forget natural products, vitamins, and supplements as viable choices, often with fewer side effects than prescription medications.
In the series of blogs we will be discussing a supplement in each session. Without a shadow of a doubt you do need to disclose the vitamins and supplements you are taking or plan to take, to your physician and pharmacist.
Berberine is found in several plants such as European barberry, goldenseal, goldthread, Oregon grape, phellodendron, and tree turmeric and has a long history of use in Chinese medicine.
One of the main actions of Berberine is to activate an enzyme in cells. This particular enzyme is often referred to as the “metabolic master switch”. Therefore, the benefits of Berberine are considered in several treatment regimens.
Berberine can be beneficial in regulating blood glucose levels, blood lipid (cholesterol and triglyceride) levels, cause weight loss, improve heart health, and many more.
Berberine lowers blood glucose levels considerably. Its effectiveness has been comparable to Metformin (Glucophage- a prescription medication).
It lowers the bad lipids in the blood while increasing the good cholesterol (HDL).
It decreases the chances of death in heart failure patients.
Berberine is also a very good anti-infective, antioxidant, anti-inflammatory, and it helps reduce fat build up in the liver.
