  • Traditionally used to rid the body of toxins

  • Cleansing herb with beneficial alkaloids

For centuries in traditional Chinese herbalism, barberry bark has been recognized as a great aid in cleansing the gastrointestinal tract. As with so many traditional herbs, analysis in a lab verifies that there is something unique in the herb's makeup. In this case, the bark of barberry roots proves to be a source of alkaloids, the most active of which is berberine. Berberine-containing plants have historically been given to support the body's ability to detox. Barberry bark has also been a long-time favorite for supporting bowel regularity and soothing the occasional and mild bout of stomach or bowel discomfort.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from RAISE THE BAR TO GET TO THE ROOT OF THE PROBLEM Quoting from Swanson's product description, ". . . .the bark of barberry roots proves to be a natural source of alkaloids, the most active of which is berberine. Berberine-containing plants have historically been given to support the body's ability to detox." I am a long-time firm believer in continual, constant, daily detoxifying the system. I see no point in building up and storing toxins of any kind. So rather than follow dietary practices that are toxic, and then sometime down the road decide that I had better detoxify for my own good, I include good, proven detoxification practices in my daily living. Easy to do. Through my reading / research, some time ago I came upon this excellent product that provides the bark from the barberry root. I have read a lot about how excellent Berberine is for detoxification and wellness. See my opening, above. I wanted to include natural Berberine in my daily detox / wellness program. This is how I have chosen to do it. I like this Full Spectrum Swanson Premium Barberry Bark product very much. I take three each night. I am very pleased with my results. I will continue to take these Barberry Bark capsules, and I can easily recommend them. I think Berberine is all that it is cracked up to be. Works for me.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Avg Formula - Need Precaution Please note the following quote from the University of Maryland about how to take this particular herb: "Barberry should not be taken for long periods of time (more than a week) without the supervision of your doctor." That said - it's a great herb for specific treatment needs. This particular formula is not standardized - but, does provide 500mg capsules which is the dosage recommended for dried root dosing. Just don't take it continuously. A week, with 3 weeks off is a good rule of thumb to follow for many of these types of herbs. My opinion based on what I've read from herbalists who have working knowledge and degrees. AND - this formula does NOT use rice flour in its formula. Yay! Thank you Swansons - keep at it - keep eliminating rice flour please!
