HELPS REDUCE BODY WEIGHT AND BODY MASS INDEX (BMI)
Berberine has been shown to be helpful in supporting healthy blood sugar levels, cholesterol levels, blood pressure and body weight/Body Mass Index (BMI).
One of the main actions of berberine is to activate an enzyme inside cells called AMP-activated protein kinase (AMPK), sometimes referred to as a “metabolic master switch”. AMPK is found in the cells of various organs, including the liver, kidney, heart, muscles, and brain. This enzyme plays a major role in regulating metabolism.
Many studies show that berberine can significantly reduce blood sugar, since it appears that it;
- Increases glycolysis, helping the body break down sugars inside cells.
- Decreases insulin resistance, making the blood sugar lowering hormone insulin more effective.
- Increases the number of beneficial bacteria in the gut.
- Slows the breakdown of carbohydrates in the gut.
Further, in a 12-week study in obese individuals, 500 mg taken three times per day caused about 5 pounds of weight loss, on average. The participants also lost 3.6% of their body fat. Another more impressive study was conducted in 37 men and women with metabolic syndrome. This study went on for 3 months, and the participants took 300 mg, 3 times per day. The participants dropped their body mass index (BMI) levels from 31.5 to 27.4, or from obese to overweight in only 3 months. They also lost belly fat and improved many health markers.
Studies also show that berberine reduces cholesterol and triglyceride levels, while raising HDL (the “good”) cholesterol. It may lower the risk of heart disease in the long-term.
