Today, we’re going to talk about berberine. People all over social media are calling berberine a natural Ozempic, but if you do a quick Google search, you may have doubts.

There are several claims that berberine can give you diarrhea, gas, constipation, and stomachaches, and can even be fatal in large amounts. There are also claims that berberine can’t work as a substitute for Ozempic because there isn’t enough research.

Berberine is a phytochemical found in various plants that has numerous health benefits, especially for blood sugar. It has even been compared to Metformin, a popular drug used to treat type 2 diabetes.

The potential health benefits of berberine:
• Helps with insulin resistance
• Helps lower blood sugar
• Helps to activate vitamin D
• Supports longevity
• Has antiarrhythmic properties
• Helps decrease the risk of a fatty liver
•Has neuroprotective properties
• Helps make chemotherapy/radiation more efficient
• Reduces gluconeogenesis

Many health problems are related to problems with the mitochondria. Berberine increases the number of mitochondria (mitochondrial biogenesis), helps clean up damaged mitochondria, and makes mitochondria more efficient.

Berberine, in small amounts, has very few, if any, side effects! Combined with keto, intermittent fasting, and exercise, you could experience significant results when taking berberine.

    Still alive! 😂 When I take it consistently my blood sugar levels go down and I am not on metformin. I don’t know if it helps with blood pressure but my blood pressure has went to normal levels since taking berberine.

    I told my doctors that they can see me for visits but I am not taking the medicine. (Metformin or any high blood pressure medicine). They are keeping a close eye on me to make sure that I am within normal levels without taking pharmaceuticals.

Went from 225 to 218 so losing weight as well. Awesome video!

      NOW Panax Ginseng Extract, and Peak Performance Glucovantage Super Berberine. Dr Berg suggested the Ginseng with the Berberine for the Ozempic mimic effect in a previous video. There is 4 hour and 8 hour Berberine. I opted for 8 hours. More expensive but obviously worth it.

    Since I started combining L-carnitine and Berberine, I’ve lost a lot of weight and also gained muscle (protein diet + weight lifting, no cardio at all, and I mean AT ALL)
    Also, somehow it’s been 2 years now without stopping… and I haven’t been ill once. That has never happened before in my life.

    Oregon Grape has a massive amount of berberine in it and it has antibiotic properties that are incredible. It helps everything in the gut. Berberine is also a fantastic anti parasitic. We use it on ourselves as well as our cats, dogs, animals. A lot of Persian recipes also call for berberine berries (Japanese Sun Barberry) grow your own supply in a garden or really generous pot.

    Reading the subject line, stopped me in my tracks. I started using Berberine about a month ago and without changing anything or even thinking of losing weight, I lost 6 pounds. My clothes are now too big for me. I was wondering why I lost so much weight all of a sudden and now I know, Berberine!!
