Berberine has in recent years risen to natural health stardom due to its powerful health promoting benefits. A large amount of supporting evidence and research has been focused on berberine’s ability to support and maintain healthy blood sugar levels and lipid profiles through its effect on 5’ Activated Protein Kinase or “AMPK”, regarded as the bodies master switch for energy regulation. AMPK dysfunction has been linked to a multitude of health conditions and is a key to correcting metabolic syndrome.

Berberine is an alkaloid present in a number of plants, including barberry, tree turmeric, Oregon grape, and goldenseal. Its history dates back 3 000 years when it used in traditional Chinese and Indian Ayurvedic medicine. Berberine has fast become one of the most researched plant extracts and remains in the scientific spotlight supported by 4500 published studies.
Whilst Berberine has a series of benefits, this important plant extract demonstrates important benefits to conditions related to metabolic syndrome. This is because Berberine is one of the few compounds known to activate AMPKwhich is an enzyme inside your body’s cells. It’s sometimes called a “metabolic master switch” because it plays an important role in regulating metabolism. The unique way in which Berberine acts on the body makes it a useful nature-based option for supporting blood sugar balance.
Modern research shows that Berberine supports healthy blood sugar, blood pressure, and blood lipid levels as well as overall general health. An additional benefit is that Berberine may support healthy weight management as part of a balanced diet and healthy lifestyle plan
In every capsule of Bio-Berberine™ Complex, the benefits of 500mg berberine are further enhanced by 125mg of Origine 8® – a highly bioavailable liposome infused and polyphenol rich green tea extract – and 25ug chromium, an essential trace mineral that can improve insulin sensitivity and enhance protein, carbohydrate and lipid metabolism.
