Whilst berberine has a series of benefits, one of this important plant extract’s most significant benefits pertains to conditions related to metabolic syndrome. This is because berberine is one of the few compounds known to activate AMPK, which 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.
Studies indicate that berberine works via multiple mechanisms, including decreasing insulin resistance, making the insulin hormone that lowers your blood sugar work more effectively. In addition, berberine encourages decreased sugar production in your liver and helps your body break down sugars in your cells.
In every capsule of Bio-Berberine® Advanced, the benefits of 500 mg berberine are further enhanced by 125 mg of Origine 8® – a highly bioavailable liposome-infused and polyphenol-rich green tea extract – and 25 ug chromium, an essential trace mineral that can improve insulin sensitivity and enhance protein, carbohydrate, and lipid metabolism.
