Product Highlights

  • Easily incorporate Berberine into your routine and maintain consistency with small, easy-to-swallow capsules

  • Blended with ginger root (20:1 providing 600mg) and black pepper (125mg) to enhance nutrient absorption

Berberine is a natural alkaloid found in medicinal herbs that is showing great promise in lowering insulin levels and improving insulin resistance - two critical factors influencing PCOS-related metabolic outcomes*. According to recent studies, berberine could even outperform traditional treatments in various key areas, including body fat, triglycerides and cholesterol levels, and hormonal status*.

Berberine also has anti-inflammatory properties, which may counteract chronic low-grade inflammation that often leads to joint pain and headaches*.

Why Choose Berberine Over Inositol?

Although Inositol and Berberine both show promise in addressing insulin resistance*, there are some key differences:

  • Berberine may be more effective for managing weight and improving body composition*.
  • Inositol is pregnancy and breastfeeding-safe, whereas berberine is not.
  • Inositol can be taken long-term, whereas berberine requires breaks for sustainable use.

Ingredients (per serve): Berberine extract (500mg), ginger root powder (25mg), black pepper extract (125mg).

Other ingredients: HPMC capsule shell, magnesium stearate.

Berberine & Ginger Complex is a careful blend of berberine, ginger root and black pepper. Each individual ingredient complements the next which, in turn, may enhance nutrient absorption*.

  • Berberine may be beneficial in addressing the chronic low-grade inflammation often associated with PCOS.*
  • Berberine acts as an insulin sensitizer, potentially improving insulin resistance in women with PCOS.*
  • Berberine may lead to improvements in body composition, helping with weight management and reducing waist circumference*
  • Berberine may improve fertility and pregnancy outcomes*
  • Berberine may have potential benefits for gut health*
  • Ginger root may regulate intestinal function to facilitate nutrient absorption*
  • Safe whilst TTC
  • NOT Pregnancy & Breastfeeding Safe
  • Vegetarian & Vegan Friendly

Can Berberine be taken with birth control?


Can it be combined with Inositol or Balance?


Can Berberine be taken long-term?

There is information out there that Berberine should be taken for no more than six months however there are no studies confirming this is the case. To be safe, we do recommend taking a month break about every 6 months still.

Take 1 capsule per day, ideally in the mornings.

No Change

I’ll keep ordering likely, but I haven’t noticed a change personally. That goes for all of the vitamins I’m taking from this company.

Berberine - game changer!

I can’t believe the difference since taking Berberine - I have finally found something which stops the cravings & i’m not constantly starving! I take one capsule every morning and inositol (inositol alone wasn’t working so well for me)

It works, though it takes some time so you may not see instant results. But after a month I noticed my waistline reduced! Great too since it doesn’t leave you feeling sick or nauseous
