Description

Berberine is an alkaloid extracted from plants with a history of usage in traditional Chinese medicine. It is most commonly used as a supplement for its anti-inflammatory and anti-diabetes properties, and is also used to reduce liver production of glucose.

Recommended Dosage

We recommend that one 500 mg capsule of Berberine be taken between two to four times per day. It is strongly recommended that each capsule of Berberine taken per day be consumed at least 3 hours after the last one, as taking too much at once can increase the likelihood of gastrointestinal side effects.

Berberine should be taken along with or directly after a meal in order to maximize its beneficial effect on blood glucose levels.

Berberine Side Effects

When taken at normal doses Berberine is non-toxic and is usually well tolerated. The most common side effects reported are stomach upset, cramping, and diarrhea. These side effects are more likely to occur if more than 1 capsule is taken at a time.

Berberine should not be combined with any prescription medications without first consulting a physician as serious adverse reactions can occur when it is combined with certain drugs, specifically Phosphodiesterase inhibitors and microlide antibiotics such as azithromycin and clarithromycin.

Before I started taking this, I had just been diagnosed with Diabetes Mellitus type 2 and had began diet and exercise, but was extremely hesitant to take Metformin for various reasons most concerning of all being the three other medications I would have to take just to counter the potential side effects of it. While researching to find a natural alternative I came across Berberine and Double Wood Supplements. After trying other glucose lowering products and not having much luck with them, I decided to give this supplement a try due to the great reviews and studies I had read vetting Berberine as a viable natural substitute for Metformin.

I started to have problems with my sugar levels & didn't want to take a prescription drug. I read up on natural sources to help get it under control & found Berberine. I have been taking it going on 5 months & it has done a pretty good job. I changed the way I eat & have been getting a little more exercise which has helped too. My blood sugar was in the 300s when I started & now it stays down around 100 to 140. Stays pretty consistent from just those changes. Not great but a lot better. Hope this keeps it in pretty good check so I don't need anything from the doc.

I had been doing a keto plan which I had taken a break from, so I purchased this product in July to help with blood sugar control. Later, I received a free bottle from the seller. I will say that I have not taken it as directed ( 3 to 4 times a day, preferably with meals), but I have taken it at least once, mostly two times per day. It has helped me not to get completely out of control with the carbs which was my hope until I return to my keto plan.

I cannot use metformin so after lots of reading berberine became the next choice. Works much better for me with zero GI problems (unlike metformin) and also works very well with my system. Looking forward to A1c testing soon to see if its working.

I started taking Berberine last month as a weight loss aid. The recommended dosage is 3 per day, but I am still only taking one because when I increase, I have definite intestinal issues. That being said, one Berberine per day seems to be helping. I have been logging my food and exercise since January and aim for 1200 calories per day and about 2 - 4 hours of exercise each week. Since the onset of menopause, my metabolism has screeched to a halt and I'm lucky if I loose a pound/week while I can easily gain weight. I lost 3 pounds the first week I took Berberine. Following that week, I went on a two week vacation and didn't diet at all. I didn't gain or lose while on vacation. This week, I'm back to my usual dieting and so far so good. I will post updates as time passes.

IBS (Irritable Bowel syndrome) has been a pretty big problem for me most of my life. I am already at the point where I had to completely cut out breads and grains. I can’t drink beer anymore which is not great. Even though changing my diet has helped me get it somewhat under control it still bothers me a lot and recently I went on a search for supplements to help out. I started a probiotic regimen right away and also came across a study which said berberine helped IBS.

Does it work for high Lipoprotein a. I have very high cholesterol. I take high doses of (Atorvastatin 80 mg) and I was told it causes liver damage. I'm very worried because I had a stroke. I was told it was because of my high lipoprotein a. I can't find anything you can take for this problem and I don't want to have another stroke.

Every year for the past 3 years my cholesterol has been just a tad high. It has come back between 240-245. My doctor gave me some diet tips but didn’t really seem that concerned about it. I am almost 40 and in great shape. I also eat very well, so his tips didn’t really make any difference.

Have reordered twice since my original order. I choose only the best and this product definitely fits into that category. Berberine is an amazing supplement and finding the best quality is of utmost importance to me. Buying anything of a lesser quality is a waste of money.
