Berberis Formula is a blend of barberry, goldenseal and Oregon grape extracts that are traditionally used in Herbal Medicine to help maintain gastrointestinal health. The main bioactive ingredient in these extracts is berberine. Recent research demonstrates that berberine inhibits bacterial attachment to the gastric mucosa.

Berberine also mediates the transport of ions and water across intestinal epithelial cells. It helps maintain the balance between electrolytes and water, resulting in an anti-diarrheal effect. Berberine can increase the expression of the Na+; H+ exchanger and aquaporin, which help enhance the absorption of sodium and water, respectively.

Berberine also promotes proper intestinal epithelial tight junction formation, and decreases the permeability of these cells to promote appropriate gastrointestinal barrier function. During low contractile states, berberine stimulates the jejunum through the activation of muscarinic receptors, resulting in increased intestinal motility, and a mild laxative effect.

Benefits:

  • Traditionally used in Herbal Medicine as a bitter to aid digestion, to help relieve digestive disturbances such as dyspepsia, and as a mild laxative
  • Includes goldenseal root extract, barberry root and stem extract, barberry root bark, Oregon grape root extract, and Oregon grape root
  • Vegan

Surprising benefits!

The reason I purchased Genestra brand was b/c their formulations are superior to other brands. You get what you pay for. I purchased this because of carbohydrate and cholesterol issues, so took one supplement about 15 minutes before breakfast and dinner for two weeks now. I noticed I didn’t bloat after eating. My husband noticed the difference in me, so decided to take it as well; he isn’t sensitive to carbs. Well, after 2 weeks he weighed himself and had lost 3 pounds, doing nothing different. I didn’t want to weigh in b/c I rarely loose weight, but he encouraged me to try. I also lost 3 pounds! In addition to the Berberis, I also started eating half a grapefruit before each meal, and we walk about an hour every day. I’ve walked and watched my weight for years without having these kinds of results. I was so surprised! Hopefully the cholesterol levels have come down as well, but I won’t know for another month. I refuse to take pharmaceuticals unless absolutely necessary, so work hard at investigating nature’s components to help my body.

Happy with product

Happy with the product-had previously got it from nutritionist-thought when it was 54%off thought it was the bigger bottle-was actually more expensive than we paid for the same bottle from the office!

Just Amazing

I tried a few protein shakes in the past , and boy did I not like them or just found them inconvenient. Vega sport protein was recommended to my as a protein supplement by my TCM doctor. After reading the reviews I decided to give it s try.
And I live it! It tastes great, satisfies my cravings and mist importantly ... I can simply mix it with water .. no blenders and no mess
Thank you Vega snd YES, I will be ordering more

SO Good!!

Definitely will be buying again, tastes so good!!

Vitamin for my Pa

My father was feeling low for a few weeks. He had his blood tested and his body checked by his Dr and no issue. I decided to get these vitamins for him. I am happy to say he’s returned to his energetic self. I’d recommend this for sure. It’s pricey but I think getting him on this for three months is good enough. That’s what I can afford.

New Roots ANTI-INFLAMMA

AN ANTI-INFLAMMATORY THAT REALLY WORKS

New Roots has done it. An anti-inflammatory consisting of boswellia, tumeric, bromelain, and quercetin all natural products that I have taken on their own. That combination taken 2 at each meal does produce a huge difference! However, you may need only1 at each meal. Certainly a supplement you would NOT take long term. For sciatica nerve pain or otherwise serious inflammation for short term it gives me the ability to walk and do what needs doing until I get advice from my doctor what is wrong and what needs to be done whether physio and exercise and or even an operation.
