BERBERINE from SOLARAY . Berberine is a golden-yellow alkaloid obtained from the roots and stems of plants such as barberry or goldenseal, among others. The Indian barberry (Berberis aristata) and the Oregon barberry (Berberus aquifolium) have been used for more than 3000 years on different continents for their therapeutic properties in a wide variety of disorders.
Berberine has been used traditionally to support the digestive system and the functioning of the immune system. Recent studies suggest that Berberine may also support proper cardiovascular and cognitive function, as well as help maintain healthy blood glucose levels.
