  • Staying on top of managing all facets of your health can seem like a very time-filling exercise. It may even feel like a sort of chore sometimes. The fact is‚ your health matters. Spending time out of your busy day to try and find out what you can improve in your lifestyle to make your body feel better may be rather difficult‚ however. Some people‚ in order to try and help benefit their health‚ take supplements.

    Berberine-500 is a dietary supplement that includes botanical compounds. It may help in promoting healthy lipid levels in the body‚ as well as provide cardiovascular support. While promoting lipid levels that are a responsible level‚ this supplement may also be helpful in supporting glucose metabolism that also is at a healthy level in the body.

    Lipids are small molecules that have the ability of storing energy and acting as structural components for cell membranes. Lipid molecules include fats‚ waxes‚ sterols‚ fat-soluble vitamins‚ and a few other molecules. Lipids also include fatty acid molecules‚ which includes cholesterol. When sponsoring healthy lipid levels‚ Berberine-500 specifically can work towards helping out LDL cholesterol levels. LDL‚ which is short for low-density lipoprotein‚ is sometimes misleadingly called ‘bad cholesterol’‚ as it is responsible for transporting fat molecules to the artery walls.

    Berberine itself is an alkaloid that can be found in several plants‚ including barberry‚ Oregon grape‚ goldthread‚ tree turmeric‚ goldenseal‚ yellowroot‚ and prickly poppy. The specific berberine extract used in Berberine-500 is from Indian Barberry extract root. All of these plants mostly supply berberine in roots‚ stems‚ and bark. Berberine has its documented beginnings in cultures as a dye‚ as its natural strong yellow coloring could be used on leather‚ wool‚ and wood. Its natural fluorescence yields a strong yellow shade as well. As used in traditional medicine‚ berberine is considered to possibly hold antibiotic properties‚ according to some. In reference to lipids‚ some research has shown berberine to promote lipid health by activating AMP-activated protein kinase‚ which can play a part in both glucose and lipid metabolism‚ which is turn can be helpful in promoting heart health.

    Each 60-capsule bottle of Berberine-500 by Thorne Research should last for about 1 month at the recommended dosage of 1-2 capsules two times a day‚ or as directed.

    Thorne Research strives to provide pure‚ high-quality supplements to people looking to enhance their health and well-being. Its products are commonly used in prestigious research studies‚ and are recommended by many doctors and health care practitioners. The company always goes the extra mile to ensure that Thorne Research dietary supplements are safe and effective for immune-compromised‚ allergic‚ and chemically sensitive patients.

    Curbs sugar cravings.

    I take Berberine 500 by Thorne Research 15 minutes before I'm going to have a carb and/or sugar heavy meal or snack and it really must be keeping my blood sugar in check as I don't feel the uncontrollable hunger after the meal or snack that I normally do. Of all the supplements I've tried over the years to curb sugar cravings, this definitely performs the best.


    Pros

      Curbs my hunger.

    Cons


    I would recommend this item to a friend.

    The best Berberine-500.

    PureFormulas offers Thorne Berberine which the lipid clinic I go to recommends. They say that the Berberine by Thorne Research is the best on the market! Much research has gone into the product to produce a pure and absorbable formula. My body will not tolerate statins and I was told this is the next best thing that is safe for me to use. Have not been on it long enough to have lipids retested yet. Hoping it's as good as the clinic says it is.


    Pros

      It's inexpensive and doctor recommended.

    Cons

      Nothing.

    Great supplement!

    You shouldn't take Berberine-500 by Thorne Research without the advice of a doctor but I take it for the insulin resistance associated with my polycystic ovarian syndrome. This isn't the brand I normally take because its more expensive but I do buy it occasionally. It works well.


    Pros

      Effect.

    Cons

      Cost.

    Trying for SIBO

    Too soon to tell, but I'm incorporating Berberine-500 by Thorne Research as part of an anti-Candida, anti-SIBO (small intestinal bacterial overgrowth) protocol, taking 1 capsule per meal for a month. I've heard you cannot use berberine long-term because it's hard on the liver.


    Pros

      Thorne makes great products without additives, fillers, excipients.

    Cons

    My Doctor informed me of Berberine-500

    My doctor said finding a source that will provide the right ingredient that will perform well and cost would be minimal. Well I searched the web and found Pureformulas.com. Read their reviews and put my trust with them and ordered my first 3 months supply. I am extremely happy with the process and the info they provided. Order was shipped and handled in an expeditious manner and received it within a week. Showed it to my doctor and he said lets give it a try and check my diabetes results in three months. I am quite sure I will get the results from Berberine-500 by Thorne Research. Company is very professional and stands behind every order you make.....Satisfied completely.


    Pros

      Great and pure ingredient. Well packed.

    Cons

      So far nothing that I dislike.

    Recommended

    Berberine was recommended to me by my Naturapathic Oncologist as an addition to breast cancer therapy. I am using it with medical therapies and am doing well. I would definitely buy this trusted name product again and recommend it to others.

    A "must have" medication made

    My doctor recommended this product for my cholesterol condition. I was unable to find it in my local health food stores and this process made it quick easy and best of all it was delivered straight to my home without having to run all over town.
