Berberine Core 4 contains 4 core ingredients to support blood sugar health:

  • BERBERINE to help maintain normal blood glucose, insulin sensitivity, and blood lipid levels
  • BANABA LEAF EXTRACT to help maintain normal blood glucose levels
  • BENFOTIAMINE to help control the formation of AGEs (advanced glycation end products)
  • GRAINS OF PARADISE to help reduce oxidative stress
 
Berberine Core 4 addresses your blood sugar from all angles to help keep your numbers in the healthy range

What are AGEs?

Advanced glycation end products, known as AGEs, are oxidants—compounds that form naturally in small amounts in our body and react with lipids and proteins. AGEs can lead to oxidation, which depletes our natural reserves of antioxidants. So, it’s imperative to maintain healthy blood sugar levels to help control the formation of harmful AGEs.

My new Berberine Core 4™ gives you 4 core ingredients from around the world to help address your blood sugar health from all angles, including research levels of berberine, the cornerstone of this comprehensive formula. It’s a powerful tool to add to your healthy diet and exercise program, and a unique combination of ingredients you’d be hard-pressed to find anywhere else.

  1. BERBERINE, the superstar of new Berberine Core 4, is a plant alkaloid and naturally occurring compound found in the roots, rhizomes, and stem bark of various plants. Clinical research shows it helps move glucose from your blood into your cells, where it’s converted to energy. It works so well because it enhances the function of AMPK proteins, which give the signal for your cells to take in glucose, and tell your body to make glucose transporters like insulin—which is critical for supporting already normal blood sugar levels. Berberine may also increase the number and activity of the insulin receptors, supporting insulin sensitivity. Plus, AMPK facilitates the burning of fatty acids in your cells, which is critical for keeping blood lipid levels in check.
  2. BANABA EXTRACT from the Banaba plant known as Philippine crepe myrtle has been shown in clinical studies to help support insulin sensitivity and activate the glucose transporters on the surface of your cells, to let glucose in. Several clinical trials with varying doses show support for helping to maintain healthy blood glucose levels within 2 hours of dosing.1
  3. BENFOTIAMINE, a highly bioavailable form of thiamine, helps protect healthy cells from AGEs and oxidative stress. Some of the best food sources of benfotiamine are garlic, onions, leeks, and shallots.
  4. GRAINS OF PARADISE (Aframomum melegueta) is a perennial herb native to West Africa that contains small, reddish brown aromatic seeds that are used as a cooking spice. It has a peppery flavor with hints of ginger, cardamom, and citrus and was one of Queen Elizabeth I’s favorite spices. Grains of Paradise may support important aspects of metabolic health by working to help reduce oxidative stress.
You get the key Bs of healthy blood sugar, plus a unique blood sugar supporter, all in 1 formula!

I strongly believe that the combination of ingredients in new Berberine Core 4 provides an extremely effective formula to address your blood sugar health from all angles. In just 2 tablets a day, it helps maintain healthy glucose levels, supports healthy insulin function and lipid metabolism, provides oxidative support, and guards against the formation of AGEs.

Batch Information

Science and Quality

Berberine (1,000 mg)

In one study, 1,000 mg of berberine was shown to support blood sugar levels already in the normal range, fasting blood glucose, triglycerides, and LDL cholesterol.1 In another study, participants were given 1,000 mg of berberine per day. This study suggests that berberine may help support normal fasting blood glucose and triglyceride levels.2 Berberine Core 4 gives you the full research dose.

Banaba Leaf Extract (48 mg)

In other studies, 48 mg of banaba leaf extract was shown to also help maintain normal blood glucose levels.3,4 Berberine Core 4 gives you the full research dose.

Benfotiamine (300 mg)

Several clinical trials show that benfotiamine is more than 3.6 times more bioavailable than water-soluble thiamine.5 Research also shows that benfotiamine protects healthy cells from AGEs and oxidative stress.6

Grains of Paradise Seed Extract (30 mg)

Grains of Paradise (Aframomum melegueta), also called Guinea pepper or Alligator pepper, is a member of the Zingiberaceae family native to West Africa. The seeds are used as a cooking spice and for a wide range of folkloric uses in traditional medicine. In fact, in the 9th century, they were used as a pepper substitute.

In vitro and animal studies suggest that Grains of Paradise seed extract has antioxidant effects in the body. Studies show that its antioxidant activity is comparable to vitamin C. These studies indicate that the extract can donate hydrogen atoms to reactive oxidative species to neutralize them.7
