Preliminary research suggests it may be supportive for the normal, healthy function of the heart, gastrointestinal tract, and liver. Much of the research has centered on berberine’s effects on blood sugar regulation and metabolism. Among its many effects is that of providing powerful antioxidant activity. Berberine has potential to increase superoxide dismutase (SOD) activity, while also lowering levels of malondialdehyde and superoxide anion. Nutricology's berberine is Non-GMO, and no common allergens are added to the ingredients.
