What is Berberine?
Berberine is an alkaloid found in plants, like Goldenseal, Barberry, Oregon Grape and Goldthread. It has a rich history of use in traditional herbalism for a number of common purposes, especially to boost blood sugar metabolism and promote healthy weight loss.* Modern research now bolsters what common wisdom told us about berberine.
There are numerous research studies that support Berberine's use as a dietary supplement. In a series of two double-blind studies, Berberine was found to be influential for healthy weight management.*1,2
The form we use comes from Berberis aristata, commonly called Indian barberry.
What Makes Enzymedica Berberine Phytosome Better?
Enzymedica's Berberine Phytosome uses ultra absorption phytosome technology. Berberine can be difficult for the body to absorb, which makes it harder to unlock its true benefits. Berbevis® phytosome solves this problem – by boosting bioabsorption 9.6 times compared with standard raw extracts. This unlocks greater potency at a lower dose, allowing for a small, easy-to-swallow capsule.
Where other Berberine products may fall short, Enzymedica’s Berberine is formulated to deliver results! A matrix of ingredients support bioavailability while resolving the issues that raw extracts have. Pea protein is a carrier that supports absorption.* Berberis aristata offers greater solubility than raw Berberine extracts.* Grape seed extract supports the intestinal lining for greater tolerability.* The result is a formula that helps keep your metabolism in balance, naturally.*
What is science saying about Berberine Phytosome?
A human pharmacokinetic study shows Berbevis® improved berberine bioavailability (AUC) by nearly 10 times on molar basis and with observed dose linearity.
Berbevis® Berberine Phytosome is made from the roots of Berberis aristata, and it is standardized to contain between 28% and 34% of Berberine.
