While berberine has a number of benefits, one of the most significant benefits of this important plant extract concerns 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 is sometimes referred to as the "master metabolic switch" because it plays an important role in regulating metabolism. The unique way berberine works in the body makes it a useful nature-based option to support blood sugar balance.
Modern research shows that berberine supports healthy blood sugar, blood pressure and blood lipid levels, as well as overall health. An added benefit is that berberine can support healthy weight management as part of a balanced diet and healthy lifestyle plan.
In all Bio-Berberine® Complex capsules, the benefits of berberine are further enhanced by 25 mg of Origine 8 - a liposomese-rich green tea extract - and 25 ug chromium, an essential trace mineral that can improve sensitivity to insulin and improve protein, carbohydrate and lipid metabolism
