What is Berberine?

Berberine is a natural compound found in Barberries, a red, target berry. Studies suggest that it may be effective at lowering blood sugar levels.


✓ Increases insulin sensitivity [1, 2]

✓ Increases insulin production

✓ Encourages glycolysis (the breakdown of glucose)

✓ Reduces glucose production in the liver

A review of 14 studies also concluded Berberine is as equally as effective at reducing blood sugar as other conventional, synthetic alternatives. [3]


Each vegecapsule of Pure Berberine includes: 500mg of Berberine HCL (98% Purity).

Each bottle contains 60 pullulan capsules, which are considered the most natural, but also most expensive types of capsule available.


Take 1 pullulan capsule per day, with a meal for optimal absorption.

Within the United Kingdom, flat rate shipping is free and delivered in 3-6 business days. Our shipping provides emailed (or texted) updates on each step of the shipment (order received, order dispatched, order out for delivery, etc.)

Please know that shipping is busier than usual this year. With many brick-and-mortar stores closing due to COVID-19, people are shopping online more than ever. This is causing a nationwide slowdown in deliveries.

Unfortunately, these delays are out of our control. We continuously monitor this situation and update delivery estimates on our checkout page accordingly.

Due to the closure of many brick-and-mortar stores in 2020, fulfillment centers and shipping carriers are busier than usual.

Please allow 1-4 business days for your order to process and ship, then the full estimated delivery window for receipt. Thank you for your patience and understanding.

We do not currently auto-ship or offer any product subscriptions.
