How It Works
The Himalayan Mountains provide rich biodiversity, featuring a host of natural plant life. Berberis aristata flourishes in this region and the adjoining hill country. The root’s berberine content and activity has been found to be dependent on the altitude at which the plant grows and its soil content: it thrives in a potassium-rich environment.
Our relationship with our berberine supplier goes back more than 15 years. It includes active involvement with the farming community and wild crafters, and a personal audit of their processing facilities. Our berberine is non-GMO verified, and Kosher- and Halal-certified.The Story behind Berberine. Berberis aristata is an Indian medicinal plant from the family Berberidaceae. This Ayurvedic shrub was used anciently by many cultures. The Egyptians used barberry fruit for immune support. In India, they used barberry fruit to help balance the fluid levels in the bowel. Russian proponents used barberry for circulatory concerns. And in Iran, they employed it for its ability to settle and soothe the circulatory and nervous systems. Other names for this species include Indian berberi, tree turmeric, jaundice berry, Daruharidra and Darvi. Native to the mountains of India and Nepal, it now grows in temperate climates across Europe, Asia and America.
