Berberine TPGS is a well-researched orthomolecular combination of ingredients that provides a significantly higher Berberine coefficient of absorption and utilization.
Berberine is an alkaloid present in several plants such as Goldenseal (Hydrastis canadensis), Oregon grape (Berberis aquifolium), Barberry (Berberis vulgaris) and Chinese Goldthread (Coptis chinensis). Recent and more thorough studies of Berberine were carried out establishing clearly that Berberine has a therapeutic use in metabolic syndrome (MSyn) charaterized by high blood sugar and A1c levels.
Berberine is poorly absorbed across the gut wall and therefore high doses must be taken to achieve therapeutic results. In addition, Berberine is degraded by stomach acids. Berberine TPGS is encapsulated in delay release (DR) capsules to minimize the impact of stomach acids. It also contains a support belnd that significantly improves absorption, bio-availability and utilization. Therefore, lower dosages of Berberine are needed but with increased efficacy. This also means less probabilty for gastrointestinal discomfort.
Berberine TPGS targets to control glucose metabolism in part by activating adenosine monophosphate-activated protein kinase or AMP-activated protein kinase (AMPK) and by increasing expression of insulin receptors and therefore reducing insulin resistance. The activation of AMPK tells the body to burn fats for energy which, by doing so, can also lead to weight loss.

Who can benefit?
If you have elevated blood sugar and/or Hemoglobin A1c, Berberine TPGS may help you improve those numbers. However, if you are already taking diabetes medication, you should consult with your healthcare provider prior to use in order to avoid abnormally low blood sugar levels (hypoglycemia).
Adults take 2 capsule 1 time per day.
Take without food (preferably take on an empty stomach).
For enhanced control of blood sugar/lipid metabolism it can be associated synergistically with Provita Metabolix™ AMPK.
For use beyond 3 months consult a health care practitioner. Do not use if you are pregnant or breastfeeding. If you have an allergy to seafood, do not use this product. If you have hypoglycemia, hypo-tension or if you take medicines for diabetes, consult a health care practitioner prior to use. If you have leukopenia, consult a health care practitioner prior to use. If you have cardiovascular disease, a liver or kidney disorder or diabetes, consult a health care practitioner prior to use. May cause gastrointestinal discomfort such as constipation, vomiting, abdominal pain or diarrhea, in which case discontinue use and consult a health care practitioner.
