What we think
Derived from Indian barberry extract (root), Thorne’s Berberine-500 is made up of an alkaloid (pure berberine HCI) which has significant impact on the GI system, insulin production and blood sugar levels in the human body.
This compound has been shown to block toxins produced by intestinal bacteria and help to increase good gut bacteria, while decreasing inflammation of the intestinal lining. It reduces cholesterol, triglycerides and LGL-cholesterol by helping the body to process these molecules more efficiently.
Berberine increases AMPK (your body’s energy-balancing enzyme) allowing your cells to balance blood sugar spikes or high blood sugar. It has been shown to aid in weight loss and is often used to treat diabetic patients because of its powerful effects on these digestive systems.
For anyone trying to maintain a healthy heart and gut, Berberine-500 will fuel these natural processes constantly working inside you.
