C. Norman Shealy, M.D., Ph.D.

I have known about berberine for some time but the increasing evidence of its tremendous benefit in type 2 diabetes pushes me to discuss it. The essential fact is that it is AS EFFECTIVE as prescription metformin, Glucophage®, and much safer! Other benefits include:

· Decreasing inflammation

· Controlling diarrhea

· Decreasing glucose neurotoxicity

· Memory

· Hypertension

· Possibly in congestive heart failure

· Autoimmune neuritis

· GERD!!

· H. pylori infections

· Lowering cholesterol

· Parasitic infections

· Bacterial, fungal and virus infections

· Thrombocytopenia-low platelet


Adult dosages of 400 to 500 mg three times daily are recommended. As with many herbal preparations, there is tremendous variability in products offered. I have spent some time searching and I would trust Dr. Whitaker’s brand. Patients on anti-diabetic drugs should be very careful as berberine could lead to significant hypoglycemia when taken with the Rx drugs!
