Berberine is a bioactive compound found in many different plants native to India, Asia and other countries that has a long history in traditional herbal medicine.
Berberine may help lower blood sugar by promoting the regeneration and functional recovery of beta cells in the pancreas. Beta cells produce and secrete insulin so berberine can promote the production of insulin. Berberine may also increase insulin sensitivity so the insulin that is secreted works better.1,2,3,4
In a 2009 study on 36 participants with newly diagnosed type 2 diabetes, researchers found that berberine supplementation decreased HbA1c by 21% and fasting blood glucose by 35%. They concluded that berberine is a potent oral hypoglycemic agent.5
Another study with 116 participants with type 2 diabetes found similar results. HbA1c decreased by 12% and fasting blood sugar by 20%. Researchers concluded berberine is a safe and effective treatment for type 2 diabetes.6
Researchers in a review of several studies claim that berberine is as effective as conventional oral hypoglycemics for the treatment of type 2 diabetes.7
Additionally, berberine has been shown to improve fasting blood sugar levels in people with metabolic syndrome.8
Berberine may help lower blood sugar and improve insulin sensitivity.
