Recent research is verifying what natural healers have known for centuries — barberry has an incredible range of remarkable health benefits.
This berberine-containing plant has been used for over 2,500 years for its medicinal properties. Barberry and goldenseal are often used for similar medicinal purposes because of their berberine content.
Why is berberine so important? It’s been shown to inhibit the growth of bacteria and lower inflammation, which is huge since we know that inflammation is at the root of most chronic diseases.
In addition, barberry extract has beneficial effects on both the cardiovascular and neural systems. Studies have shown that antioxidant-rich barberry can even help prevent center types of cancer.
