Why Choose Dihydroberberine?
The downside of Berberine is that is has poor bioavailability and it causes increased rates of gastrointestinal stress at higher doses.
Dihydroberberine(DHB) is one of the 17 metabolites of berberine and a key factor in the benefits received from berberine as it is metabolized by the body. DHB is five times, more bioavailable than berberine. If taken with sunflower lecithin the absorption rate is even greater. Lecithin is a fatty substance naturally found in the body as well as in many plants and animals. Lecithin may also help promote healthy digestion, support healthy cholesterol levels and improve overall heart health.
