Hello all,

 

I have read at various places that Berberine (which I take 2400mg every day from Planet Source) has poor bioavailability which is a shame as it is a really fantastic supplement. 

 

Any ideas how to make it more bioavailable? 

 

I take this alongside PQQ +Coq10 for AMPK activation, Magnesium, Piperine, Astaxanthin and Creatine.

I've recently started taking Berberine and Silymarin based on research I found. It comes from Milk Thistle Extract (80% Silymarin).

Supplements formulated with berberine and silymarin may improve blood lipid levels and fasting blood sugar levels, says a meta-analysis of five randomized, double‐blind, placebo‐controlled clinical trials (RCTs).

Thanks Oakman. I know it's a more expensive way than taking Metformin, but at least I do not have to visit the doctors and start begging them for a prescription!

 You took the words (and reasons) right out of my mind. In fact, this combo appears the equal or better of Metformin in many ways.
