Get Berberine with Ceylon cinnamon

Berberine activates an enzyme inside cells named AMP-activated Protein Kinase (AMPK).

We also add Ceylon cinnamon to our new Berberine+. Ceylon cinnamon is packed with vitamins, minerals, and antioxidants, which provide benefits for your immune system, hair, nails, inflammation, and glucose support. In the context of the Berberine+ supplement, Ceylon cinnamon complements the effects of Dihydroberberine by further supporting healthy blood sugar levels and providing additional health benefits.

The first studies on Ceylon cinnamon were done in 1975, and since then have shown that Ceylon cinnamon promotes optimal insulin sensitivity, as it contains anti-inflammatory properties, and can help maintain healthy blood pressure levels.

Berberine's main goal is to balance blood glucose levels, so take it up to 20 minutes before your two large meals of the day. This allows your body to function at its best.

Berberine improves normal, balanced blood sugar levels by increasing insulin sensitivity. This, in turn, helps to prevent those carb crashes and blood sugar spikes. Moreover, it reduces the possibility of overeating and helps to control your appetite.
