The most prominent of berberine’s pharmacological properties are its beneficial effects on insulin and blood glucose management. Berberine exerts its effects independently of the mechanism of metformin and other common hypoglycemic agents so the compound may be used alone or in conjunction with conventional pharmaceutical drugs. In fact, berberine has been shown to be as effective as metformin and lowering fasting blood glucose and hemaglobin A1C levels.
There are multiple mechanisms behind berberine’s influence on blood glucose control and insulin sensitivity. In diabetics using insulin, the addition of berberine resulted in increased fasting in postprandial c-peptide, which suggests that long-term use of berberine might improve insulin secretion in patients who failed to respond to oral hypoglycemic drugs. Berberine helps carbo-addicts who craves sugar and carbs because it inhibits the digestion and absorption of carbohydrates by interfering and inhibiting with the enzymes related to that function. Berberine also uses oxidative stress and helps reduce strain on the liver.
