Thank you! I did see it when looking at the Berberine but right now I'm taking Andrew Lessman's Cinnamon. Once it's gone, I may try the Nutrivein. Thanks again!🤗

@SilleeMee  Would you happen to know if Berberine has any

known negative side effects or if it intereacts with any medications?  Is it okay to use, if you don't have a blood sugar issue? Thanks


 

 

 

@Enufstuff 

For me personally, I don't have any side effects from taking berberine. I'm on a Rx calcium channel blocker BP med and there's not interaction with that one. Check with your doctor or look it up online for your drugs and possible interactions.  Way back when I started taking berberine I did lose a few pounds but nothing significant. Not sure why you would want to take berberine for no reason. It's mainly used for blood sugar control.

They were out of my Berberine for my subscription shipment, so I am going to try your brand. Saved a fee dollars too. Yay!

 

Thanks for mentioning your product. I have wanted to try cinnamon, but I did not want to add another item.

@kate2357  I was looking over my subscriptions this mornng since my last day to adjust is this Friday.  I saw a few of my items were unavailable this time, too, and found less expensive options,  I guess it's a good idea to review them and take the time to compare other options now and then.

I follow a Youtube channel called Talking with Docs. They are 2 Canadian Doctors and I love them. They recently had a video on Berberine and they do not recommend it, I think they were talking about it for weight loss though. You should check them out. I listen to about every video that they do.

Just FYI, Lessmans is not Ceylon Cinnamon, it is the much cheaper kind found in grocery stores, dont be fooled !!! too much of it can be harmful.  I take Nutricost Ceylon Cinnamon.
