First time I read about using some herbal alternatives to Metformin.  Has anyone any advice to offer on this.  Here's the link that prompted this post:

I often eat a ketogenic diet, spend most of the day fasted, and exercise in this fasted state before breakfast.  I would imagine this activates AMPK at least as much as some small amount of an herb in a capsule.

Berberine would be another. It can interfere with pharmaceuticals however. More info at examine.  com

Glucosamine and Resveratrol also stimulate AMPK.

I believe I've read that forskolin induces AMPK activation as well.

Long-term forskolin stimulation induces AMPK activation and thereby enhances tight junction formation in human placental trophoblast BeWo cells

I believe Ginkgo Biloba is fairly good at activating AMPK.
