Berberine is a compound found in the roots, rhizomes, stems and bark of several plants commonly used in botanical and Chinese medicine, such as goldenseal, Oregon grape, barberry, and Berberis aristate—from which its name is derived.
It has become increasingly popular as people seek natural compounds that may aid in maintaining healthy blood glucose and insulin levels, without some of the adverse side-effects of pharmaceutical medications commonly used for this purpose.
Berberine helps promote healthy blood glucose levels and sensitivity to insulin through multiple mechanisms.*
One way berberine may aid in healthy glucose regulation is by limiting the activity of enzymes that digest carbohydrates in the small intestine, thus resulting in less glucose being absorbed into the bloodstream after meals.
Alpha Lipoic Acid
Alpha lipoic acid (ALA) is best known as an antioxidant. ALA is both water- and fat-soluble, meaning it exerts its antioxidant effects in different types of tissues and different compartments in the body. In addition to its antioxidant effects, ALA supports healthy insulin secretion and sensitivity, in part by facilitating the way cells take up glucose from the blood.*
ALA is also a key cofactor for enzymes inside the cells’ mitochondria, which is where fats, carbohydrates, and proteins are converted into energy. Thus, ALA helps support a healthy metabolism.*
Recommended Use: As a dietary supplement, take one capsule per day with a meal, or as directed by your health care practitioner.
Note: Work with your physician to monitor your blood glucose levels, as medication for blood sugar regulation may require adjustment to account for the effects of berberine.
