The study had two parts:
The in vitro research showed that treatment with berberine increased the number of insulin receptors on cells derived from a wide variety of human tissues, including pancreatic, immune, and connective tissue cells. They also found that cells were more responsive to insulin after being treated with berberine. These findings have important implications for people with type 2 diabetes, a chronic disease characterized by high blood levels of both insulin and glucose due to insulin resistance in the cells.
The human part of the study had several key findings:
"Our results confirmed that berberine increases insulin receptors in humans and that this is associated with its glucose-lowering effect," said study co-author Jian-Dong Jiang at the Chinese Academy of Medical Sciences in Beijing. " We believe that berberine, which has a different mechanism than other glucose-lowering drugs, is an ideal medicine for type 2 diabetes."
The best medicine for people with type 2 diabetes is a healthy diet and regular exercise. The results from this study suggest that a gram of berberine per day might help get blood sugar under control. Bear in mind that any supplement may interact with glucose-lowering drugs and could cause low blood sugar (hypoglycemia). If you have diabetes, check with your doctor or other healthcare provider before adding supplements to your program, including these that have also been shown to support diabetes management:
