Berberine has been shown to reduce blood sugar to a similar extent as some anti-diabetic drugs. In people with metabolic disorders, research suggests that berberine may improve blood lipids and liver enzymes, and reduce body weight and fat mass.

Evidence from clinical trials conducted in people with type 2 diabetes suggests that berberine is able to reduce blood sugar to a similar extent as some anti-diabetic drugs. In people with metabolic disorders, limited research suggests that berberine may improve blood lipids and liver enzymes, and reduce body weight and fat mass. However, most of the available trials examining the effects of berberine on the aforementioned outcomes are of poor methodological quality.

The standard dose of berberine is 900-2,000mg a day, divided into three to four doses.

Berberine should be taken with a meal, or shortly after, to take advantage of the blood glucose and lipid spike associated with eating.

Too much berberine at once can result in stomach upset, cramping, and diarrhea.

The usage of berberine in reducing blood glucose, according to the most recent meta-analysis, is comparable to the oral hypoglycemic drugs Metformin or Glibenclamide; this suggests berberine is one of the more effective supplements for blood glucose reductions.

The reduction of HbA1c associated with berberine, according to a meta-analysis of diabetics using 1,000-1,500mg berberine daily, was −0.72% (95% CI −0.97 to −0.47) more than placebo. This reduction appears to be one of the more significant reductions associated with dietary supplements.
