Berberine is an alkaloid found in many plants, but most notably in goldenseal (Hydrastis canadensis), barberry (Berberis vulgaris), Oregon grape (Berberis aquifolium), and goldthread (Coptis chinensis). These plants have a long history of use in supporting health. Berberine can be produced from various plant parts (e.g., seed, bark, root, etc.). Enzymedica’s Berberine is a sustainable product produced from the seeds of barberry (Berberis vulgaris).†
Enzymedica’s Berberine is provided in a targeted delivery capsule to prevent the breakdown of the capsule and subsequent release of berberine in the stomach. This type of capsule is recommended for berberine as in an acidic environment berberine will bind with other berberine molecules to form insoluble complexes that do not get absorbed. Prevention of the formation of these complex is thought to double the absorption of berberine possibly
Berberine has been extensively studied in clinical trials for positively influencing regular blood sugar, lipids, and hypertension. Recently, the Journal of Ethnopharmacology published a detailed review of the 27 clinical studies with berberine in these disorders that provided clear answer questions on its safety and efficacy.1
Berberine has also been examined as a weight loss aid in two double-blind clinical trials. In one study, 37 men and women with metabolic syndrome were given 300 mg of berberine three times per day for three months. The body mass index (BMI) levels dropped from 31.5 to 27.4.2 In another study, 500 mg of berberine three times per day caused an average of 5 pounds of weight loss over a 12-week period.3
