Berberine+ taps into the power of GlucoVantage® Dihydroberberine to deliver up to 5x the bioactive benefits of ordinary berberine.*
Berberine is known as a powerful AMPk activator and insulin sensitizer - but why should you care?
Insulin sensitivity is a critical component in how well our body uses nutrients and glucose. If one has high insulin sensitivity, then the cells cooperate extremely well and only need a small amount of insulin to effectively lower blood glucose levels. In this case, we hope the blood sugar is directed towards muscle.
But if you have low insulin sensitivity, or you are insulin resistant, the body must produce a lot of insulin. And when it does so, it enters a state of elevated insulin levels. Called hyperinsulinemia, this bodily state has been linked to a mess of undesirable things, such as obesity, heart disease, diabetes, and hypertension.*
One of the most promising compounds that’s been used to increase insulin sensitivity is berberine and research is showing that dihydroberderine is a superior form of berberine.*
In 2015, scientists compared dihydroberberine to berberine, at doses that would amount to an equivalent final product. They found that the intestinal absorption rate of dihydroberberine was five times higher than berberine.*
