[WEBINAR] Berberine Containing Plants

December 12, 2017 @ 1:00 pm - 2:00 pm EST


Berberine Containing Plants – a Bitter/Sweet Alkaloid Story!

Plants are composed of a complex variety of chemical constituents that give them their beauty, diversity and supportive actions. Among all of the constituents found in plants, nitrogen containing alkaloids are among the most powerful, as well as the most addictive and toxic! Nearly all plants that offer support enclose some kind of alkaloids within their structure.

Berberine is an alkaloid that is found in many plants we commonly use in herbalism.  In this session, we will explore the wide range of applications of berberine and related alkaloids along with a discussion of ancient traditional use, and modern investigations into mechanisms of actions, herb-drug interactions, and best applications.
