Organic Berberis Aristata Extract (tree turmeric)
Berberis Aristata, also known as Indian barberry or tree turmeric, is a shrub that is native to the Himalayas in Indian and Nepa, but is also found in temperate and subtropical regions of Asia, Europe, and America.
This plant contains berberine, a plant alkaloid with an extensive history of medicinal use in Ayurvedic and Chinese medicine. Berberine extracts have been demonstrated to have significant antimicrobial activity against organisms such as bacteria, viruses, fungi, parasites and some STDs.
We have incorporated a Berberis Aristata Extract into our Adrenal Supertonic primarily for the antimicrobial properties it contains when taken internally and for its ability to serve as a natural alternative to toxic preservatives.
