Effects of Berberine on blood glucose levels

Of all studied effects, one of the most significant was Berberine’s blood glucose regulating potential. During a Chinese clinical study course, Berberin’s implications have been studied on Type 2 Diabetes conditions throughout 4 years period, between 2007 and 2011. During this trial, it has been sufficiently as well as scientifically proven that 12 weeks of Berberine treatment could persistently regulate the blood glucose level and significantly improve the IR/PCOS conditions. [1].

According to this clinical trial, it was concluded, that besides its hyperglycaemia reducing attributes, Berberine was able to compensate dyslipidaemia occurring during diabetes conditions, therefore its fat-reducing effect is also remarkable. Dyslipidaemia is a certain lesion, as being one of the major cause of unjustified obesity and large scale fat deposition in the body. Indeed, Dyslipidaemia is resulted of lipodystrophy – disturbed fat metabolism – when the level of fats are reaching a significantly higher value to normal. In most cases, dyslipidaemia is the cause of yo-yo effect, and this lesion is the background for uncontrollable obesity processes. Thus, Berberine successfully demonstrated to offset Dyslipidaemia. A comparison of Berberine vs other blood glucose reducing drugs has also been disclosed in this publication, for example comparing it with Metformin, which is the formula that has been prescribed in the highest number up until today, for women suffering in IR/PCOS caused lesions. Berberine per se, demonstrated to be more effective than Metformin and, in addition, the greatest advantage of Berberine, is, that it works its way of efficacy without causing physical symptoms and discomfort feeling as Metformin does. Berberine’s hypoglycaemic action (blood glucose lowering effect) is a proven fact, however, Berberine’s versatility can be well characterized and proved by results of clinical studies; besides the already mentioned treatment ability of dyslipidaemia, its positive effects on HbA1C (one major parameter examined at diabetes conditions) as well as its co-benefits on cholesterol levels. All these benefits can be proved with research based evidences. [2-7].

Interactions with other drugs

Taking Berberine in its own is absolutely harmless and has neither produced any major, nor more moderate or even mild side effects at any patients involved in the research trials, however, Berberine’s concurrent use of certain pharmaceutical compositions may be risky.
DO NOT apply Berberine with macrolide antibiotics like Azithromycin and Clarithromycin.
IMPORTANT: Be sure to read the document on possible side effects.

Berberine – Potential Adverse Effects and Cross-reactions with other Drugs


In order to demonstrate the most effective biological comparison of Berberine, daily taking of 3 capsules is recommended. Neither more, nor less. 3 capsules daily – in the morning, at noon, and in the evening, each time, preferably after meals. [19-20].

Summary Applying Berberine as a supplement, in particular is strongly recommended for patients in IR / PCOS and type 2 diabetes (with type 2 diabetes making up about 90% of the cases). Berberine is recommended as well to those suffering from insulin problems, or, for any reason whatsoever targeted to lower their higher than normal blood sugar (glucose) level. On the basis of carried out researches, Berberine was able to lower the cholesterol level in the blood. As Berberine perfectly regulates the body’s insulin secretion, treats dyslipidaemia, and thus fat metabolism in the body, therefore being very effective in reducing the percentage of body fat (weight loss).

90 percent of the publications that examines Berberine were done within the past 6 years, therefore due to the uptodate research results as well as the representative size of study groups demonstrated credible evidences of Berberine’s efficacy.

Berberine was administered throughout 12 weeks in each case, taken daily a dose of 1000-2000 mg in multiple smaller serves throughout the day. Major adverse effects were not diagnosed at all, however, it is definitely not recommended to use Berberine in combination with macrolide antibiotics. Caution should be used when taking Berberine concomitantly with other medicines, as it may be risky. Before usage, it is certainly recommended to consult your physician.
