Berberis Formula 90 vegcaps

Berberis Formula contains Berberine which is indicated for parasitic, bacterial and viral infections, candidiasis, yeast, urinary tract and bladder infections, intestinal flu, streptococcus and staphylococcus (1).

This supplement combines standardized extracts with whole, fresh herbs to ensure the high alkaloid content of berberine, oxyacanthine and columbamine, known for their antibacterial, antiviral and antiparasitic properties.

Research shows that environmental pollutants, lack of exercise and inadequate nutrition can lead to increased allergies, and parasitic and bacterial infections which, in turn, release toxins into cells, damaging tissue and leading to chronic degenerative disease.

Berberine also has cholesterol normalizing effects. A  published research study in the Journal of Nature Medicine, touted Berberine for its cholesterol lowering properties. The title of the study is "Berberine is a novel cholesterol-lowering drug working through a unique mechanism distinct from statins". Nature Medicine 10, 1344 - 1351 (2004)
Published online: 7 November 2004. Unlike statins, Berberine has no negative side effects on the liver, or libido. 

Berberine is a bitter-tasting, yellow, plant alkaloid with a long history of medicinal use in Chinese and Ayurvedic medicine. Berberine is present in the roots, rhizomes and stem bark of various plants including Hydrastis canadensis (goldenseal), Coptis chinensis (coptis or goldenthread), Berberis aquifolium (Oregon grape), Berberis vulgaris (barberry), and Berberis aristata (tree turmeric)

Goldenseal (dried root and rhizome) at 0.6-3 grams per day is traditionally used in Herbal Medicine to help alleviate infectious and inflammatory conditions of the digestive tract such as gastritis, as a bitter to aid digestion, as a bitter to increase appetite, to help relieve digestive disturbances such as dyspepsia and as a mild laxative (2).

To evaluate the antisecretory activity of berberine sulfate (BS), 165 adult patients with acute diarrhea due to enterotoxigenic Escherichia coli (ETEC) and Vibrio cholerae were studied in randomized controlled trials. In patients with ETEC diarrhea who received 400 mg of BS in a single oral dose, the mean stool volumes were significantly less than those of the controls during three consecutive 8-hr periods after treatment. At 24 hr after treatment, significantly more patients who were treated with BS and had ETEC diarrhea stopped having diarrhea as compared with the controls. In patients with cholera who received 400 mg of BS, the mean 8-hr stool volume during the second 8-hr period after treatment declined to 2.22 liters, which was significantly less than the 2.79 liters found in the controls. These results indicated that BS is an effective and safe antisecretory treatment for ETEC diarrhea, whereas the activity against cholera is slight and not additive with tetracycline (3).
