Berberine: Metabolic Health Benefits Explained Via the GUT
The recent popularity of Ozempic (semaglutide) has finally made “gut hormones” a kitchen-table topic.
Unlike most stimulant-based fat burners, Ozempic offers it’s metabolic health benefits by way of the gut.
Berberine HCl has similar indirect effects on metabolic health through its effect on the same gastrointestinal hormones termed “incretins.”

In this video we discuss more about:
-Berberine's interaction with gut bacteria are known to be an essential mechanistic basis for the health benefits linked with Berberine.
-Berberine HCl has indirect effects on metabolic health through its effect on the gastrointestinal hormones termed “incretins.”
-Oral Berberine HCl undergoes a conversion-absorption-reversion process that takes place entirely in the intestinal environment.
-Gut bacteria interact with Berberine reducing it to dihydroberberine where it's then oxidized within the intestinal cells back to berberine--the main chemical form detectable in the blood.
It's important to note that virtually all of the human studies conducted on berberine to date are use Berberine HCl in doses of ~ 500 mg once or twice daily, not dihydroberberine (DHB).
Although some companies claim 'dihydroberberine (DHB) is 5X better absorbed than Berberine HCl,' DHB is virtually undetectable in blood and organs.
