Berberine (formerly Berberine-500) in New Zealand

A powerful botanical for heart health, immune support, weight management, and GI support

Berberine is a natural plant alkaloid offering multiple health benefits. Key nutritional features include maintaining already healthy cholesterol and blood sugar levels, promoting GI microbial balance, and supporting healthy metabolism.

How to Use

Take 1-2 capsules two times daily or as recommended by your health professional.

60 Capsules

PS. This is the new formula:

The Thorne Berberine still contains 1g of berberine (from Berberis aristate),  in a 2 capsule serve (500mg/cap). However, Thorne have improved the formula by putting 550mg of the extract as a phytosome form. The 450mg Berberine HCL and 550mg Berberine Phytosome equals the same as the old formula of 1g of berberine.

This new form still offers the same berberine benefits but with an improved absorption rate due to the Berberine phytosome.

Berberine is a well-researched botanical with a long history of use in traditional Ayurvedic and Chinese herbal practices. Thorne’s high-quality berberine products contain the most researched form – berberine HCl – alongside the highly absorbable berberine phytosome, thus offering a wide range of health and wellness benefits.*
