I think there may be a benefit to take a bit each week. I don't think i am comfortable taking it everyday, unless in the smaller dose the the NAD booster.jessicaP wrote: ↑Mon Oct 03, 2022 9:11 pmI think this is a good approach with Berberine, to take 'as needed, rather than every day. Unless you have Type 2?Boxcost wrote: ↑Sun Sep 18, 2022 10:43 pmNope, was never really taking it regularly. Only when a "bad meal" was unavoidable, so tasty stuff but not good for you so to speak I would take one to even out the glucose spikes. It did though impact my own gut bacteria so slight discomfort and then to put it bluntly then diarrhea!
Then trying the same thing with Berberine, did not have the same impact on gut but still did its job to lowering glucose spike, so Berberine all the way for me now.
Some interesting things noted when tracking myself for 4 weeks with a Glucose monitor:
Things that drop Glucose:
Taking 2 x RBS LIPO Activator capsules (So Fisetin, Quercetin and Spermidine)
Broccoli Sprout powder
Obviously Berberine and Metformin as well
Noting that I did take a Berberine thinking that I am about to eat a bunch of potato chips and a few beers would give me a spike, 2 hours later before just before dinner I ended up with a low Glucose (2.8 mmol/l) and felt very ordinary. So the lesson is learnt, that is I will only take just before or with 'bad meals".
Things that increase glucose:
Interestingly a black coffee while fasting and then kicking off some exercise lifts it a little, then it gradually reduces and levels out.
Of course the usual's being Pasta, Brown (not as bad) and White Rice, Cous Cous and with the biggest spike came from a can of Blackberry Cider (very tasty and sweet!).
I have looked into this... haven't found a clear answer, since while there are some similarities between the two, they also act differently and get the results differently.
i don't think one can do a dosage comparison in this manner.
Looking at the fact that you are speaking of 500 mg of non-lipo Berberine, and knowing how UN-bioavsilable Berberine generally is, one capsule of LIPO Berberine, will easily meet or surpass 500 mg of non-lipo.
I Capsule of RBS Lipo Berberine 5 days per week for me..Looking at the fact that you are speaking of 500 mg of non-lipo Berberine, and knowing how UN-bioavsilable Berberine generally is, one capsule of LIPO Berberine, will easily meet or surpass 500 mg of non-lipo.
I can feel it doing me good at the end of the day if I stray and indulge a little with my daily food intake.
