Thorne Research Berberine-HP (Formerly Berberine-500)
Thorne Research Berberine-500 is a dietary supplement that includes botanical compounds. It may help in promoting healthy lipid levels in the body‚ as well as provide cardiovascular support.* While promoting lipid levels that are a responsible level‚ this supplement may also be helpful in supporting glucose metabolism that also is at a healthy level in the body.*
Lipids are small molecules that have the ability of storing energy and acting as structural components for cell membranes.* Lipid molecules include fats‚ waxes‚ sterols‚ fat-soluble vitamins‚ and a few other molecules. Lipids also include fatty acid molecules‚ which includes cholesterol. When sponsoring healthy lipid levels‚ Berberine-500 specifically can work towards helping out LDL cholesterol levels.* LDL‚ which is short for low-density lipoprotein‚ is sometimes misleadingly called ‘bad cholesterol’‚ as it is responsible for transporting fat molecules to the artery walls.*
Berberine itself is an alkaloid that can be found in several plants‚ including barberry‚ Oregon grape‚ goldthread‚ tree turmeric‚ goldenseal‚ yellowroot‚ and prickly poppy. The specific berberine extract used in Berberine-500 is from Indian Barberry extract root. All of these plants mostly supply berberine in roots‚ stems‚ and bark. Berberine has its documented beginnings in cultures as a dye‚ as its natural strong yellow coloring could be used on leather‚ wool‚ and wood. Its natural fluorescence yields a strong yellow shade as well.
Thorne Research strives to provide pure‚ high-quality supplements to people looking to enhance their health and well-being.*
