Outside of the scientific and homeopathic communities, many health-minded Americans may wonder what berberine is because it’s not as recognizable as other antioxidants, such as resveratrol and turmeric.
Like turmeric, berberine has a deep, vibrant yellow color. And while its powerful therapeutic compounds are linked to an assortment of benefits, such as a healthy heart and gut, it’s how berberine benefits blood sugar, metabolism, mood, and supports weight loss that we’ll explore here.
Berberine is a plant extract traced to ancient medicine. But modern science reveals this “natural drug”works as well as the anti-diabetic drug, metformin, without the side effects, making it an effective tool to consider for healthy blood sugar balance. A balanced level of blood sugar is a key factor in maintaining steady energy and mood and reducing the risk of diabetes and heart disease. It also plays a vital role in how macronutrients become converted to fuel.
Numerous human clinical studies as well as animal and in vitro studies strongly support that the active compounds in berberine have the ability to reduce blood sugar, thereby having a positive snowball effect on other physiological conditions.
