Berberine is one of the most powerful weight loss supplements out there because it acts on some of the most fundamental issues that precipitate weight gain.

What makes it ideal is that it has a broad range of benefits, is well-tolerated, and can be used in conjunction with other weight loss supplements and medications.

Here’s how it can help you lose weight:

1. By improving insulin sensitivity. Berberine has been shown in at least 1 study to have an equal impact on blood sugar as the prescription medication metformin.
2. By increasing the density of mitochondria in your muscle cells. Increasing muscle function is critical to burning more calories.
3. By activating brown fat tissue. Brown fat tissue helps regulate your heat production and metabolism and berberine can help you brown white fat.
4. By reducing inflammation. Reducing inflammation helps balance fat-storing hormones like leptin.
5. By improving gut health. There is a connection between gut health and your ability to stay lean and berberine can help clean up your microbiome from unwanted bacterial overgrowth syndromes.

The ideal dose of berberine is somewhere between 500 mg all the way up to 2,000 mg taken each day. You will want to split the dose taking half in the morning and half in the evening.

Most people are fine taking 1,000 mg per day but you may want to take more if you are trying to treat issues like diabetes or insulin resistance as well.
