Berberine-500‚ by Thorne is an alkaloid that can be found in several plants‚ including barberry‚ Oregon grape‚ golden thread‚ goldenseal. The specific berberine extract used in Berberine-500 is from Indian Barberry extract root. All of these plants contain berberine in their roots‚ stems‚ and bark. Berberine has its documented beginnings in cultures as a dye‚ as its natural strong yellow coloring could be used on leather‚ wool‚ and wood. Its natural fluorescence yields a strong yellow shade as well.

As used in traditional medicine‚ berberine is considered to promote broad-spectrum immune function and digestive support. Its benefits include maintenance of intestinal bacteria and encouraging healthy respiratory membranes as well as playing a role in regulating blood sugar‚ insulin tolerance‚ and cholesterol levels.

      My doctor prescribed Berberine-500 by Thorne Research for my Crohn's. I had high hopes that it would work. Unfortunately, it gave me it caused a great deal of gastro distress. I took it for a month thinking my issues were a Crohn's flare up then I read that one of the side effects could be diarrhea. I stopped taking the Berberine and within 48 hours I no longer had issues. I lost 10lbs in a month being on it. My father takes it for his diabetes and has great success with it and no side effects.

      Pros

      Worked for my father.

      Cons

      Made me very ill. Make sure to take it with food. When I took it on an empty stomach, it made me vomit.

      I got Berberine-500 by Thorne Research to boost my metabolism while starting the Glow15 intermittent fasting program. So far so good. I taste the bitterness only slightly as another reviewer mentioned, but it goes away completely once swallowed. I would not recommend opening up the capsule but taking it whole.

      Pros

      Easy to take. Metabolism booster.

      Cons

      None. 
      I would recommend this item to a friend.
