Berberine regulates cholesterol and glucose levels in the blood. Through its lipid-lowering and glucose-lowering effects, it reduces bad cholesterol (LDL) levels and is an effective ally in the prevention and treatment of pre-diabetes and type II diabetes.
Berberine also has a protective effect on various organs such as the heart, liver and kidneys. In addition, berberine has antibacterial, immuno modulating and anti fungal properties.
In particular, it acts against Candida albicans, a yeast-like micro-organism naturally present in the body (intestine and mouth, in particular), but whose proliferation can lead to an infection called candidiasis.
Berberine is also known for its antioxidant effects, which help reduce oxidative stress caused by free radicals.
