Dihydroberberine: A powerful ingredient to get a healthier life

In modern society, the progress of civilization and the development of science and technology have given people more capital to obtain health; however, this backfired. The diseases of modern people have not been reduced, but they seem to be more likely to be sick. Nowadays, many people suffer from various diseases, and some people are even very young. They have various digestive problems such as irritable bowel syndrome, acid reflux, chronic diarrhea, abdominal pain, bloating, or constipation, often several simultaneously.

Despite the tremendous progress had made in medicine and increasing investment in health care, nothing seems to stop the pace of soaring disease rates. More and more people are now overweight or obese, and they have more and more fat around our waists and hips; Modern people are more prone to illness and more drug-dependent than at any time in human history.

Dr. Paul Clayton who’s a former Chair of the Forum on Food & Health (UK), and Senior Scientific Advisor to the UK government’s Committee on the Safety of Medicines points out as people moved away from simple traditional diets to the modern, increasingly ultra-processed diet, new ways to sicken and die came to the fore. Today, the modern diet and lifestyle are making degenerative diseases universal such as the thickening of arteries, the thinning of bone, the failing of memory, and the increasing frequency of cancer.

What’s more, Dr. Paul also mentions modern diet and lifestyle provide so much sugar and starches that the large amounts of glucose entering the bloodstream overwhelm the body’s ability to remove it. Hyperglycemia and the resulting hyperinsulinemia lead eventually to metabolic syndrome and Type 2 diabetes and contribute to the many long-term complications of diabetes. These include heart, liver, and kidney disease, peripheral neuropathy, blindness, dementia, and several cancers. But fortunately, the relevant science has evolved to the point where scientists now broadly understand why and how these degenerative diseases develop. Dihydroberberine as an effective antidote can be used preventatively.

NNB Nutrition, which is a leading technological enterprise dedicated to research, development, production, and sales of high-quality, innovative nutritional food ingredients, has released a new variant of berberine – GlucoVantage®. This is a patented new ingredient and science-backed superior form of the ingredient – Dihydroberberine (DHB).

What is berberine?

Berberine is a powerful plant alkaloid that improves the body’s insulin response, with large amounts of scientific research showing significant improvements to insulin sensitivity, fasting glucose levels, HbA1c reduction, nutrient partitioning, and far more. It’s even outperformed pharmaceutical drugs because it can effectively prevent humans who are experiencing a modern diet and lifestyle from resulting in many degenerative diseases and long-term complications of diabetes.

Think berberine is good? Take a look at dihydroberberine.

Dihydroberberine is one of the 17 active metabolites of berberine, which is produced naturally in the body via a reduction process that occurs after ingestion of berberine by gut microbes. Dihydroberberine is then converted back to berberine after absorption by the intestines. Supplementation with dihydroberberine could therefore remove this rate-limiting step of microbial reduction and mitigate potential gastrointestinal distress that some experience with berberine supplementation. This GI distress is likely the result of poor absorption and or the microbial reduction process.

In addition, the structure of dihydroberberine (which contains multiple hydrogen bonds), allows for better bioavailability and absorption and easier binding at the cellular level than berberine. (references)                            

Compared with supplementing with berberine, dihydroberberine has 5 times more intestinal absorption, which means people would need to take 5 times the amount of berberine to get the same result as with dihydroberberine. (references)

NNB GlucoVantage® Advantages

In conclusion, NNB’s dihydroberberine performs distinguished advantages which are:

1. Less potential GI distress than berberine, reducing adiposity and improving insulin sensitivity at lower doses

2. Superiorly bioavailable form of berberine (up to 5x more effective)

These advantages are so exciting because NNB nutrition discovered this better way to maximize berberine’s potential. NNB is very confident to see a rise in the popularity of dihydroberberine – and thus NNB’s GlucoVantage® – very soon.
