If you are one of the almost five million people looking for a safe, natural weight-loss supplement, researchers from the Avera Institute for Human Genetics may have the solution.1 And it comes in the form of a simple herb.
In a recent study, the researchers from South Dakota found that this herb aided weight loss… safely and effectively. They published their findings in the journal Phytomedicine.
Subjects took 500 mg of it three times a day. After 12 weeks, subjects lost an average of five pounds. But that wasn’t all. The herb significantly reduced blood fat levels by 23 percent. It also decreased cholesterol by 12.2 percent.
Of course when it comes to losing weight, there is no “quick fix.” But there are healthy ways to give your efforts an extra push. And that’s what makes this herb truly unique.
It actually boosts your heart, kidneys, and liver. For a weight loss supplement, that’s rare.
Just last month a study warned consumers about the risks behind the popular OTC weight-loss drug Alli.2 A study from the University of Rhode Island found that Alli may cause “severe toxicity” to major organs including your kidney and liver.
And remember the ephedra craze? The FDA pulled that diet supplement in 2004 following dozens of deaths.3
But this herb has been a staple in traditional Chinese medicine for years. And just recently researchers tested the safety and effectiveness of it on rats to confirm their results. Again, it proved safe and lowered triglycerides by 34.7 percent and cholesterol by 9 percent.
So what is this wonder herb?
It’s called berberine.
Berberine is found in barberry, goldenseal, and other plants.4 Typically in the barks.
Berberine naturally burns fat in the body. How? It improves insulin resistance—a must for anyone with diabetes. Also, it slows down the release of fatty acids, which cause lipid levels to decrease. Lower lipid levels help prevent harmful fat formation. And all that equals a healthy heart along with other vital organs. You won’t find those health properties in an over-the-counter diet pill. Or any fad diet.
Berberine isn’t a magic pill that will melt the fat off. But it can help you lose weight safely. And it will protect your entire body in the long run. No harmful side effects and definitely no “severe toxicity.” With a balanced diet, daily exercise regimen, and a little berberine you’ll be a new thinner and healthier you in no time.
