Berberine is a chemical compound found in many plants including goldenseal, barberry, oregon grape and phellodendron. Usually extracted from the roots, stem and bark, Berberine has had a long history of use in both Chinese and Ayurvedic medicine. Herbalists have recognised the benefits that Berberine could have in cardiovascular health.
Unlike other herbal supplements for heart health, Swanson has selected Berberine for its combined action on maintaining both healthy cholesterol and glucose levels. Continued studies and trials into Berberine use in traditional therapies has indicated the wide possibilities Berberine could have in health including:
- An Antimicrobial: Berberine may help to fight against bacterial infections, viruses and support the GI tract.
- Maintenance for healthy blood glucose levels: Studies have suggested that Berberine may be effective in helping to regulate glucose metabolism.
- Support for a healthy heart: Research has shown that Berberine could have a positive effect on lowering cholesterol levels, blood pressure and fat loss to collectively reduce unnecessary pressure on your cardiovascular system.
- A Boost for brain health: Berberine may help to prevent oxidative damage to brain cells.
Research is still being conducted into how Berberine exactly works in the body, but later theories have suggested that it could be enhancing the action of the enzyme AMPK (adenosine monophosphate-activated protein kinase) which influences how the body creates and uses cellular energy.
