Bowel movements aren’t something that most people bring up during normal conversation. Due to this understandable hesitancy to discuss the matter‚ you may not know what’s considered normal bowel functioning. Furthermore‚ what’s considered completely normal for one person may be a source of concern when it comes to the bowel movements of another person.

In general terms‚ normal bowel function is defined as the regular passage of soft‚ formed stools in the form of feces. Bowel movement is crucial for preserving good health‚ because proper functioning eliminates toxins from the body. There is no ideal number of bowel movements per day or week set in stone; the appropriate frequency depends on the individual‚ often with their doctor’s input.

Berberine is an alkaloid salt derived from the plant Berberis aristata . Its extract form is known as berberine sulfate. This ingredient has traditionally been used in Chinese medicine to support regular‚ normal bowel function in healthy individuals. It has also been associated with treating certain intestinal disorders. If you’re suffering from bacterial or traveler’s diarrhea‚ this herb can benefit you. Studies also indicate that berberine may contribute to lowering excessively high cholesterol and triglyceride levels‚ without the typical side effects of statins.

That’s why Vital Nutrients’ Berberine 200 mg supplement contains berberine in an exclusive and effective formula. Each capsule is made with cellulose sourced from vegetables‚ and is preservative-free. This supplement hypoallergenic and contains no wheat‚ milk‚ corn‚ pork‚ beef‚ soy‚ or other commonly recognized allergens. Berberine is also free of synthetic chemicals—such as flow agents or surfactants—which can hinder the bioavailability of nutritional supplements‚ making it harder for your body to absorb and benefit from them.

Vital Nutrients provides a variety of effective‚ safe dietary supplements. All of their products are gluten-free‚ GMO-free‚ and packaged in BPA-free bottles.

      Helps bring sugar level down to the norm

      from manhattan, new york on 4/21/2014
      I can be classified as pre-diabetic. I follow a low fructose-glucose diet and have been taking berberine because it was prescribed by Dr. Dadamo. I can safely say that berberine brings my sugar level to the normal range faster than usual the few times that I eat a carbohydrate that would ordinarily keep my sugar up for days.

      It works for me.

      from Denver, Colorado on 10/11/2013
      Ive been using Berberine to lower my insulin resistance for four months now and is is working. Ive dropped from 200 to 127. My naturopath is pleased and were working to get it down to 100 or a little before before we go to a maintenance dose. We re doing Berberine as part of a plan to keep my cancer at bay. So far so good.


      Its working the waI wouldnt recommend this. It should have a professional involved.y we want it to


      Its hard to avoid the taste entirely. The outside of the capsules often have a dusting of the powder that I can taste on the way down. I wouldnt recommend it. A professional should be involved.

      I have always had a problem with constipation. My entire life has been plagued with this problem. Since taking Berberine I no longer have an issue. I take 2 every morning and 2 every evening. I recommend Berberine for those suffering.


      It works!

      Berberine 200 mg is recommended by our doctor. I am very grateful that Pure Formulas carries it as they sell it for less than our doctor.

      from So. AZ desert on 5/13/2011
      I found out about using Berberine by Vital Nutrients to treat intestinal parasites by researching online and in health books. I have had giardia several times and before I always struggled through the cure using an Rx for Flagyl. Flagyl a very strong antibiotic is not recommended for repeated usage plus I don't tolerate it very well. Plus using it always leaves me with a yeast infection a very nasty side effect. So I decided on my own after acquiring giardia in Honduras in April 11 to try using Berberine which also kills yeasts and is reported to be easier on the digestive system than Flagyl. This product was slightly confusing to determine a dose as most of the studies Id read were using Berberine Hydrochloride and this is Berberine sulphate. But after carefully rereading I realized that these capsules contain 200 mg of Berberine and that that is the crucial thing...not which chemical source it is derived from. I initially used 2 capsules twice a day with breakfast and dinner as I weigh 150 lbs. and my infection was quite severe by the time I received this formula. After 4 days I began experiencing what I thought were side effects of taking the berberine and as the giardia symptoms were no longer present I reduced the dose by half still dosing twice a day with meals and continued at the reduced dosage for another 4 days. It has now been two days since I stopped the treatment and I am still symptom free and am able to eat more normally with improving digestion. And no sign of yeast infection.


      Its an herbal alternative to Flagyl. Side effects were mild compared to Flagyl and I was able to alieviate them by reducing the dose. It improved my symptoms greatly after taking it for only one day and I had multiple severe symptoms. Capsules


      I did experience some side effects...difficulty digesting small meals especially dinner; a feeling of fullness and bloating; mild dizziness.

      I hesitate to use berberine...

      from Denver, CO on 4/21/2011
      I took Berberine by Vital Nutrients for almost a month and had very frequent headaches. I took it to treat systemic candida. I thought I was experiencing a die-off reaction at first but after more than three weeks I am thinking that I was reacting to the product. I am very sensitive to many foods so this is not surprising. I just wish I could continue to take it to help clear the candida.


      I like the fact that it is a very clean product with no fillers and is free of the allergens I react to.


      The bitter taste and my reaction.
