Berberine is an alkaloid and natural constituent of many herbs such as Golden Seal and Barberry. Studies have shown that berberine helps support healthy blood sugar and cholesterol levels. Berberine is found in the roots, rhizomes, stems and bark. Its history of use dates as far back as 3000 years in Chinese traditional and Ayurvedic medicine.
Berberine has fast become one of the most researched phytochemicals and continues gaining popularity, as is evident through the increased research each year and the 4500 published studies as of 2017.
Berberine has multiple actions but the primary one believed to have the greatest impact on human health is its ability to support the healthy expression of AMP-activated protein kinase (AMPK).
AMPK dysfunction has been linked to a multitude of health conditions and is a key to supporting metabolic syndrome. Other natural activators of AMPK are calorie restriction and exercise.
