Berberine is a compound present in several plants, including goldenseal and Oregon grape. New Roots Herbal's Berberine is sourced from barberry (Berberis aristata), a hardy evergreen species well adapted to temperate and subtropical regions throughout the world.
This bitter alkaloid has a rich history of therapeutic use, dating back thousands of years in both Ayurvedic and traditional Chinese medicine.
