    BERBERINE FOR GLUCOSE METABOLISM AND CARDIOVASCULAR HEALTHA placebo-controlled study provided the first evidence that berberine is a valuable supplement for diabetes and cardiovascular health. Berberine was shown to lower blood glucose, HbA1c (the best measure of long term blood sugar and diabetes control), triglycerides, total cholesterol and LDL cholesterol significantly better than a placebo in people with type 2 diabetes.When type 2 diabetics were given either berberine or the diabetes drug metformin, the berberine was equally effective for blood glucose, HbA1c and insulin. Berberine had an advantage over the drug, though, because it also lowered cholesterol and triglycerides. The study also found that adding the same dose of berberine to the treatment of people whose type 2 diabetes was not being adequately managed by drugs significantly lowered blood glucose, HbA1c, triglycerides, totalcholesterol and the harmful LDL cholesterol.A third study compared berberine to two drugs: metformin and rosiglitazone. Berberines effectiveness was similar to the drugs. It significantly lowered fasting blood glucose levels, insulin, triglycerides and HbA1c in type 2 diabetics. In vitro, berberine increased the number and responsiveness of insulin receptor cells.A meta-analysis of 27 controlled studies found that berberine was as effective as drugs for diabetes, equal to drugs for lowering total and LDL cholesterol and superior to drugs for lowering triglycerides and raising the heart healthy HDL cholesterol. It also found that berberine is superior to placebo for high blood pressure.Berberine has also been shown to be beneficial in the treatment of arrhythmias and heart failure. Adding berberine to conventional treatment of congestive heart failure has been shown to significantly improve the results and significantly lower the number of deaths.

    What Our Customers Are Saying

    ★★★★★

    I have been in multiple times since they opened and I love this store! Well organized, clean and really friendly staff. The owner is very friendly and genuinely cares about the customers. I was looking at some hair products and one of the employees came over and showed me her favourites and I ended up buying everything she recommended and I am not disappointed! My hair feels and smells amazing! This is seriously my favourite store in Fredericton! Such a great variety of products that you can feel safe using :)

    I am so grateful to all the staff, especially Eleanor, who have been super helpful when I have come into the store or called in. I only recently discovered Sequoia Fredericton, but IMO, having worked in the service industry myself, the greatest achievement of a business is to have a team that exceeds service expectations and strives to offer 'personalized' care to every person who walks through the door. This is what I get at Sequoia, which is now my go-to store! Thanks :)
