Berberis Formula is a blend of barberry, goldenseal, and Oregon grape extracts that are traditionally used in Herbal Medicine to help maintain gastrointestinal health and digestive function. The main bioactive ingredient in these extracts is berberine, which helps to promote normal bowel regularity. Berberine mediates the transport of ions and water across intestinal epithelial cells, and maintains the balance between electrolytes and water. It also promotes healthy intestinal motility.

Excellent product. I am still taking it. I take one a day at dinner time and still have a ways to go, probably a month more. There are 90 capsules in this bottle, so it's taking a while to complete. So far, I have to say, it must be doing something. So far, so good.
