ALPHA-LIPOIC ACID + BERBERINE delivers both alpha-lipoic acid (ALA) and the plant alkaloid berberine in one formula. These ingredients have been observed to support insulin activity and glucose metabolism. More recent research also suggests a role for berberine in supporting normal Hemoglobin A1C levels, a testing marker for glucose/insulin function. Diabetics, pre-diabetics, and those with the Metabolic Syndrome have dysregulation of the glucose/insulin system. Since many people who have high blood pressure, &/or are overweight, have challenges to their glucose regulating process, we include this supplement in these categories.
