Have you heard of Berberine? It’s a plant with bright red berries and the root is bright yellow. Berberine Pro is made from the root of the berberine plant, hence the capsules are bright yellow in color.
Berberine is a powerful supplement when it comes to metabolism, the gut microbiome, and inflammation.
For metabolic health, Berberine is a superstar. It activates insulin receptors and can be helpful in Insulin Resistance and Diabetes. In fact, a study found Berberine to be as effective as Metformin, a common diabetes medication.
Berberine is also a natural anti-microbial, for both bacteria and yeast! It is used for treating gut microbiome disturbances like dysbiosis (bacterial imbalance), Small Intestine Bacterial Overgrowth (SIBO), Small Intestine Fungal Overgrowth (SIFO), and Candida overgrowth.
In addition, Berberine has anti-inflammatory benefits. Berberine Pro also contains Alpha Lipoic Acid which is a powerful antioxidant helpful for metabolism, nerves, as well as the mitochondria (energy powerhouses) of your cells.
Berberine Pro has been a favorite in my office because of it’s versatility and use for both metabolism and the gut microbiome.
Some of my videos reviewing the use of Berberine include Insulin Resistance, SIBO, and Candida and SIFO.
If you have any questions, please post them in the comment section of any of my YouTube videos. I appreciate your comments and feedback!
