Support grows for the traditional Chinese herb berberine’s ability to maintain healthy weight. I continue to use Berberine because it helps reduce cholesterol and blood lipid levels.
I love to help people lose weight in a safe and natural way. CandiBactin-BR® by Metagenics provides the formula of berberine I like to use. It’s also good to support a healthy immune system and elimination functions.

In a recent study obese subjects were given 500 mg of berberine orally three times per day for the course of twelve weeks. The results were perhaps surprising as they demonstrated only a moderate weight loss, but supported a healthy weight by other means: “berberine treatment produced a mild weight loss (average 5lb/subject) in obese human subjects. But more interestingly, the treatment significantly reduced blood lipid levels (23% decrease of triglyceride and 12.2% decrease of cholesterol levels) in human subjects” .
Order CandiBactin-BR® by Metagenics with Berberine to help prevent fat accumulation.
