Berberine...a.k.a. Nature's Ozempic Or Exercise In A Bottle!

Karen Fitzpatrick-Dame, ChhC, AADP

Berberine activates AMPK which is a pathway that upregulates metabolism. It's also activated during exercise, hence the phrase, exercise in a bottle.

This pathway takes blood sugar out of the blood and puts it into the cells where it can be used for energy. With GLP-1's and Berberine, GI upset is sometimes an issue, and this is because the bacteria in your gut has to take Berberine and change it into DihydroBerberine which is the active form and is more water soluble.

DihydroBerberine is already in the form that does not need to be converted, so it is highly absorbable and, therefore, you will see much less GI upset. If you have problems with your GI system, use the DihydroBerberine.

Berberine causes a major reduction in blood sugar levels. It decreases insulin resistance, making the blood sugar-lowering hormone insulin more effective; increases glycolysis, helping the body break down sugars inside cells; decreases sugar production in the liver; slows the breakdown of carbohydrates in the gut, and increases the number of beneficial bacteria in the gut.

Berberine reshapes the gut microbiome and helps with weight loss.
