Description

Berberine (as Berbercap or Berberine-500) helps maintain healthy cholesterol and blood sugar levels. It also supports a healthy balance of microbes in the GI and respiratory tracts. Thorne's high-quality berberine supplement provides broad-spectrum immune function and GI support. Berberine helps maintain a healthy balance of normal bacteria in the intestines and promotes healthy respiratory tract mucus membranes. Thorne has been trusted by health-care practitioners, U.S. National Teams, and families around the world for more than 30 years. Thorne Bestsellers are a testament to Thorne's mission to provide high-quality supplements that are tested for quality, safety, and efficacy. Berberine-500 is a botanical extract that has important benefits for blood sugar metabolism, maintenance of healthy cholesterol levels, and insulin sensitivity. There are no unnecessary fillers or additives in Thorne supplements. Thorne is committed to providing high-quality supplements that contain research-backed ingredients, in efficacious amounts, that retain the potency to meet label claims until the day of expiration. When our tissues need an additional blood supply, like during exercise, or when we’re stressed, our blood vessels need to dilate efficiently. If blood vessels are not as elastic as they should be, then our health can suffer. The production of nitric oxide is very important to blood vessel health. When an adequate amount of nitric oxide is produced in our blood vessels, the vessels are more elastic, normal blood pressure can be maintained, sexual arousal occurs normally, and cardiovascular health is promoted. Thorne supplements enhance the body’s production of nitric oxide, thus promoting healthy blood vessels. We develop better standards for higher quality ingredients. Thorne cares deeply about where our ingredients come from. We partner only with suppliers whose practices emphasize quality, science, and responsibility. Better ingredients means better potency, absorption, and digestibility - and ultimately better health. We manufacture our own products to ensure full supply chain transparency. For more than 30 years, we have invested in clean manufacturing practices. We refuse to use ingredients that can inhibit absorption. We perform our final production in the United States. Our Charleston, SC facility is third-party certified. We run four rounds of testing for each of our products. We have invested in two state-of-the-art in-house laboratories that allow us to conduct four rounds of testing, while most competitors test only one or two times. We test our raw materials, in-process batches, finish products, and product stability for each product. We're thinking sustainably to protect our environment. We believe the environment should never be compromised for the sake of business gain. At Thorne, we believe that doing our part to protect the environment and its most valuable resources goes hand in hand with our product quality standards.

abunda_amazon_reviews This has been a miracle drug to the person for whom I purchased it because they are insulin resistant (apparently many people are who do not know it). The person lost an incredible amount of weight as a direct result of taking this version of berberine. The only side effect seems to be a more active bowel movement schedule. Not diarrhea, just more and looser BMs. If you are having an insulin resistance problem i.e. you can't lose weight no matter how much you exercise and cut calories you should consider looking into whether you are insulin resistant and taking berberine. Look up the studies comparing prescription Metformin to berberine and you'll see that berberine is literally just as effective but without side effects. Don't believe me, look it up yourself. And it seems this particular brand and dosage works as claimed whereas many others do not. I appreciate the "Amazon's Choice" endorsement of this and other supplements as they cut through the morass of ineffective versions of supplements. The person who is taking this was considering Metformin. According the U.S. government--the National Institutes of Health--berberine does everything Metformin does but without side effects. And as far as I can tell, that is absolutely the case. I am loathe to endorse any product as a weight loss drug because I have never seen one that worked without concomitant harm of some sort. But this one absolutely is a weight loss drug if--and it's a big IF--you are insulin resistant (borderline type 2 diabetic) and considering taking Metformin. In the case I am witnessing (it's been about 90 days--30 days on, 30 days off, 30 days on--there is no question that berberine has radically treated insulin resistance. When the person was off, appetite was high, weight loss stopped, tiredness returned, etc. On berberine (this brand and dosage in particular) the person has lost weight, reduced appetite, increased energy, improved muscle tone, complexion, etc.--all the stuff that the imbalanced blood sugar levels were affecting.
