Botanical extract for metabolic, cardiovascular, and GI support
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.
Berberine is an alkaloid found in many plants, including Hydrastis canadensis (goldenseal), Coptis chinensis (Coptis or golden thread), Berberis aquifolium (Oregon grape), Berberis vulgaris (barberry), and Berberis aristata (Indian barberry). The berberine in Berbercap and Berberine-500 is from Indian barberry extract (root) (Berberis aristata).
