Thank you for buying our Berberine! I just wanted to take this opportunity to go over 3 questions with you that we get asked frequently. They are great questions we want all our customers to understand, that will really help everyone get the maximum benefits available from Berberine supplementation.
1) When is the best time to take Berberine?
This is the most important aspect of taking Berberine successfully. If you don’t follow these instructions, it won’t work. Berberine gets metabolised (used) very quickly by the body after you take it, so you need to take 1 capsule 3 times a day with your regular meals, or shortly before or after them. This is so it can work on reducing your blood sugar levels. The scientific studies have shown that if you take 2 or 3 capsules with a single meal it’s not effective.
Another disadvantage of taking more than one capsule at a time is that is can cause some bloating or other GI problems.
2) How long do I need to take Berberine for to see an effect?
Berberine can cause a reduction in fasting glucose levels in as little as 2 weeks, but normally it will take at least 3-4 weeks to see reductions.
3) Can I take Berberine with my statin medication?
Yes, absolutely. Trials have shown that Berberine can actually improve the effectiveness of statins. The combination has been shown to be both safe and effective.
However, please don’t stop taking any prescribed medication without consulting your doctor.
