Bowel movements aren’t something that most people bring up during normal conversation. Due to this understandable hesitancy to discuss the matter, you
may not know what’s considered normal bowel functioning. Furthermore, what’s considered completely normal for one person may be a source of concern when it
comes to the bowel movements of another person.
In general terms, normal bowel function is defined as the regular passage of soft, formed stools in the form of
feces. Bowel movement is crucial for preserving good health, because proper functioning eliminates toxins from the body. There is no ideal number of bowel
movements per day or week set in stone; the appropriate frequency depends on the individual, often with their doctor’s input.
Berberine is an alkaloid salt
derived from the plant berberis aristata. Its extract form is known as berberine sulfate. This ingredient has traditionally been used in Chinese medicine to
support regular, normal bowel function in healthy individuals. It has also been associated with treating certain intestinal disorders. If you’re suffering from
bacterial or traveler’s diarrhea, this herb can benefit you. Studies also indicate that berberine may contribute to lowering excessively high cholesterol
and triglyceride levels, without the typical side effects of statins.
That’s why Vital Nutrients’ Berberine 200 mg supplement contains berberine in an exclusive
and effective formula. Each capsule is made with cellulose sourced from vegetables, and is preservative-free. This supplement hypoallergenic and
contains no wheat, milk, corn, pork, beef, soy, or other commonly recognized allergens. Berberine is also free of synthetic chemicals—such as flow agents or
surfactants—which can hinder the bioavailability of nutritional supplements, making it harder for your body to absorb and benefit from them.
provides a variety of effective, safe dietary supplements. All of their products are gluten-free, GMO-free, and packaged in BPA-free bottles.

Got giardia? Try berberine by Vital Nutrients!
By Cactus from So. AZ desert on May 13, 2011
I found out about using berberine to treat intestinal parasites by researching online and in health books. I have had giardia several times, and before I always struggled through the 'cure' using an Rx for Flagyl. Flagyl, a very strong antibiotic, is not recommenede for repeated usage, plus I don't tolerate it very well. Plus using it always leaves me with a yeast infection, a very nasty side effect. So I decided on my own after acquiring giardia in Honduras in April '11 to try using Berberine, which also kills yeasts and is reported to be easier on the digestive system than Flagyl. This product was slightly confusing to determine a dose, as most of the studies I'd read were using Berberine Hydrochloride, and this is Berberine sulphate. But after carefully rereading, I realized that these capsules contain 200 mg of Berberine, and that that is the crucial thing...not which chemical source it is derived from. I initially used 2 capsules twice a day with breakfast and dinner, as I weigh 150 lbs., and my infection was quite severe by the time I received this formula. After 4 days, I began experiencing what I thought were side effects of taking the berberine, and as the giardia symptoms were no longer present, I reduced the dose by half, still dosing twice a day with meals, and continued at the reduced dosage for another 4 days. It has now been two days since I stopped the treatment, and I am still symptom free, and am able to eat more normally with improving digestion. And no sign of yeast infection.
It's an herbal alternative to Flagyl.
Side effects were mild compared to Flagyl, and I was able to alieviate them by reducing the dose.
It improved my symptoms greatly after taking it for only one day, and I had multiple severe symptoms.
Capsules were clean without much bitter taste.
It's available without Rx.
Price was very reasonable.
Delivery was very prompt.
I did experience some side effects...difficulty digesting small meals, especially dinner; a feeling of fullness and bloating; mild dizziness.
I would recommend this item to a friend.
I hesitate to use berberine due to headaches
By Mary from Denver, CO on April 21, 2011
I took Berberine for almost a month and had very frequent headaches. I took it to treat systemic candida. I thought I was experiencing a die-off reaction at first, but after more than three weeks I am thinking that I was reacting to the product. I am very sensitive to many foods so this is not surprising. I just wish I could continue to take it to help clear the candida.
I like the fact that it is a very clean product with no fillers and is free of the allergens I react to.
The bitter taste and my reaction.
I would recommend this item to a friend.
