Berberine Highlights and Facts
Berberine HCL (Berberis aristata) (bark)
Berberine is a bioactive compound found in several plants, including Berberis shrubs. A compound like this belongs to a class of compounds called alkaloids. Yellow in color, it is often used as a dye. A variety of ailments were treated with berberine in traditional Chinese medicine. The benefits of berberine for a variety of health conditions have now been confirmed by modern science. (1)
Berberine and Its Effects
Numerous studies have been conducted on the effects of berberine. It affects a variety of biological systems. When berberine is ingested, it is absorbed by the body and transported to the bloodstream. It then enters the cells of the body. Once inside the cells, it binds to several different molecular targets and changes their function. Pharmaceutical drugs also work in a similar manner. (2)(3)
In cells, berberine activates an enzyme called AMP-activated protein kinase (AMPK). Metabolic master switches are sometimes referred to as this enzyme. Many organs contain it, including the brain, muscles, kidneys, heart, and liver. This enzyme regulates metabolism. (4)(5)(6)
Berberine and Life Style Changes
Diabetes type 2 has become more prevalent in recent decades, causing millions of deaths annually. Elevated blood sugar (glucose) levels are caused by insulin resistance or insulin deficiency. Over time, high blood sugar levels can damage tissues and organs in the body, causing a variety of health problems. In people with type 2 diabetes, berberine can significantly reduce blood sugar levels. (9)
As a matter of fact, its effectiveness is comparable to that of the popular diabetes drug metformin (Glucophage). Berberine lowers blood sugar levels by decreasing insulin resistance. Berberine increases glycolysis inside cells and decreases sugar production in the liver by producing an enzyme. As a result of berberine's beneficial effects on the gut, the number of beneficial bacteria increases as well. (10)(11)
In one study, 1 gram of berberine per day lowered fasting blood sugar by 20%, from 7.0 to 5.6 mmol/L (126 to 101 mg/dL), or from diabetic to normal. Additionally, it reduced hemoglobin A1c by 12% and improved blood lipids like cholesterol and triglycerides. Berberine, which is an oral diabetes drug, was found to be as effective as metformin, glipizide, and rosiglitazone in a review of 14 studies. (12)(13)
A 12-week study found that obese individuals lost an average of 5 pounds by taking 500 mg three times daily. Participants also reduced their body fat by 3.6%. (14)
Researchers believe weight loss results from improved fat-regulating hormone function, such as insulin, adiponectin, and leptin. Berberine inhibits fat cell growth on a molecular level as well. (15)(16)
Berberine and the Heart
Premature death is primarily caused by heart disease. Many factors that can be measured in the blood are associated with an increased risk of heart disease. These factors have been shown to be improved by berberine. In addition to lowering total cholesterol and LDL cholesterol, Berberine also lowers blood triglycerides and raises HDL cholesterol. (17)
This supplement has also been shown to lower apolipoprotein B by 13-15%, another major risk factor. According to some studies, berberine inhibits an enzyme called PCSK9. As a result, LDL is removed from the bloodstream. (18)
The remarkable berberine has been subject to cutting-edge research illuminating its ability to support the body with various heart conditions, such as hypertension and arrhythmias. It also helps manage diabetes by reducing insulin resistance - making it an invaluable safeguard for your cardiovascular system. (19)
Berberine Secondary Benefits
Researchers have found that it may be helpful in treating depression in rats. Berberine has been shown to have potent antioxidant and anti-inflammatory properties in several studies. By reducing fat buildup in the liver, non-alcoholic fatty liver disease can be prevented. One study found that it improved patients' symptoms and reduced their risk of heart failure death.
