Berberine is a bitter-tasting alkaloid that has a long history of use in both Chinese and Ayurvedic medicine‚ primarily to support gastrointestinal function. Berberine has demostrated significant activity against a wide variety of organisms including a broad spectrum of bacteria‚ yeasts‚ fungus and parasites. Its mechanism of action is thought to result in part from its characteristic structure‚ which is that of a planar catonic molecule. In addition‚ Berberine has been shown to be supportive of healthy blood sugar levels‚ including fasting and postprandial blood glucose‚ and HbA1c as well. Berberine has also been shown to be supportive of normal blood lipid levels‚ with the apparent mode of action described as an increase in the production of a receptor protein in the liver which binds LDL-cholesterol‚ preparing it for elimination.
