  2. I have been taking berberine since January 2021. I lost 38 pounds adding this. Some things to watch for is chelation of iron, liver enzymes going up and kidneys getting a lil to healthy to the point of being on the low low side of tests. I also did an Intestinal ISO enzymes test and it was 0 because of the berberine. The good things are my CRP is 1, my fasting insulin got to an 8, Cholesterol numbers went down ,HDL went up, NO more joint pains , Rosacea flare ups lessened. So many benefits to BERBERINE. It is a very powerful herb.

    1. @Teresa Reesman I was taking Thorne Berberine but they changed the formula to a phytosome to increase absorption with sunflower, pea and grape seed extract. I find it’s not working for me so i am trying something else. The Nutricost one and I have Himalaya for subscribe and save.

  3. I started taking Berberine for Cholesterol and Triglycerides’ improvement. I’ve only been on it about five days now, but I have noticed my knees are not aching like they used to when I am sitting down watching TV. I also noticed I no longer have uncontrollable cravings for carbs or sweets.
