Berberine hydrochloride is commonly found in many natural plants including barberry, goldenseal, philodendron, Oregon grape, and goldthread. The first traces of berberine being used medicinally are found more than 3000 years ago, when the barberry plant and its relatives were being cultivated in China and South Asia. It has been used historically for a variety of applications and one study showed it can support healthy blood sugar metabolism.
Astaxanthin is a powerful antioxidant extracted from algae that according to studies has many benefits and may lower blood sugar levels.

Berberine may interact with macrolide antibiotics, including azithromycin and clarithromycin. Always consult with your healthcare practitioner before adding any new supplements to your routine — especially if you’re currently on macrolide antibiotics or diabetic medication. Berberine may also cause mild gastrointestinal discomfort in large portions, so that’s something to be mindful of if you increase the amount of GCO you’re taking.
