Berberine has many positive effects on the body but has largely been used to help manage blood sugar levels and improve insulin sensitivity. Improving glucose metabolism can be difficult if we’re falling short on healthy complex carbohydrates like whole grains, fruits, veggies, and legumes, and consuming too many simple sugars often hidden in processed foods.
Because of berberine’s ability to improve glucose uptake, this plant-like substance has been known to regulate energy metabolism helping to aid in weight management and body fat reduction.
Besides helping to keep us trim around the midsection, healthy glucose metabolism also contributes to good cellular health and function. Glucose imbalance not only impacts our weight, but can lead to oxidative stress, inflammation, and damage to cells.
CanPrev’s Berberine 500 contains 500mg of Berberis aquifolium extracted from Oregon grape root and standardized to 97% in each vegetable capsule. While this plant alkaloid offers other useful broad-spectrum benefits like antioxidant, anti-microbial, cardiovascular, and healthy cholesterol support, consider it a top choice to help even out any metabolic mania setting you back.
