BerbElite® Frequently Asked Questions
Here are some answers to the most frequently asked questions we get about BerbElite®.
What is BerbElite®?
BerbElite® is a bioavailable berberine supplement produced by Mara Labs that contains berberine, a beneficial plant-based molecule, and our proprietary Broccoli Seed Complex, which markedly increases the bioavailability of berberine.
How is BerbElite® different from other berberine supplements?
Typical berberine supplements can be absorbed at a rate of about 0.7%, which is not enough to immediately lower blood sugar, even at a daily recommended dose (500mg-1,500mg). In other words, even if you took a recommended dose per day (like 1,500 mg), you would only absorb less than 1% (15mg) of the berberine in the capsule. Because of this, many berberine supplements cannot provide the dosage level needed to lower blood glucose or cholesterol.
The addition of our Broccoli Seed Complex makes our BerbElite® more bioavailable than the typical berberine supplement. Because our berberine gets into the cell, BerbElite® lowers blood glucose levels approximately ten points in just a few hours. (A blood ketone level of 0.5 mmol/L and a glucose of 82 mg/dL can be achieved in three hours with two BerbElite® capsules).
How do I know BerbElite® is helping me?
Supplements work differently for everyone depending on body chemistry. However, the most common sign that BerbElite® is working is improved energy and sleep quality. If you routinely monitor your blood sugar, you may also notice a decrease in blood sugar after taking BerbElite®. Working together with your physician to monitor blood sample changes based on your supplement use and lifestyle change can help guide you to additional goals and give you direction for improving your health.
Why is there “Broccoli Seed Complex” in the capsule in addition to berberine?
Our proprietary Broccoli Seed Complex contains Stabilized Sulforaphane as well as cousin molecules (AITC, BITC, Iberin) that work synergistically to increase the bioavailability of BerbElite®. This means that the Broccoli Seed Complex helps berberine get into your cells.
What is the suggested dosage?
Our recommended dose for BerbElite® is 2 capsules per day (700 mg berberine). We recommend taking both capsules in the evening with dinner, but you can also take 1 BerbElite® in the morning with breakfast and 1 BerbElite® in the evening with dinner.
Do I need to take it with food?
We recommend taking BerbElite® with food. But you can also take BerbElite® on an empty stomach.
Are there any adverse effects to taking it?
There are no known adverse effects to taking the sulforaphane in BerbElite®. However, if you are new to this supplement or supplements in general and are struggling with health, we would recommend starting slowly and taking it with a glass of water and a meal.
Does it need to be refrigerated?
No. If you use it daily, BerbElite® does not need to be refrigerated. If you use BerbElite® periodically, we recommend putting it in the refrigerator so that the ingredients stay potent for a longer period, up to one year.
Is there a guarantee?
We strongly believe you will benefit from BerbElite® and experience how important it is to your health. If you are not completely satisfied with our product, however, we offer a 100%, 60-day money back guarantee on your first bottle purchased from our website. Your original shipping costs will not be refunded.
What does BerbElite® do?
Berberine is a compound found in various plant species and has been used for thousands of years in Ayurvedic and Chinese traditional medicine to treat illness and inflammatory conditions. The bioavailable berberine in BerbElite® helps to lower blood sugar, improve sleep, reduce excess “bad” cholesterol while promoting “good” cholesterol, and boosts the production of “feel-good” chemicals in the brain, such as oxytocin, dopamine, and serotonin. Additionally, berberine can improve cellular turnover, liver, and cardiovascular function. Finally, berberine exhibits neuroprotective properties to help maintain normal brain function.
How does BerbElite® work?
Once BerbElite® crosses the gut barrier and gets into the bloodstream, it acts to perform a variety of functions.
Primarily, BerbElite® has a potent impact on lowering blood sugar, even with the first dose. It promotes the production of insulin, which delivers glucose to the cells that need it most, where it is used as energy. Berberine also positively impacts insulin resistance and has been shown in many clinical studies to have a lasting impact on lowering blood glucose.
In addition, BerbElite® promotes the action of cell receptors that eliminate “bad” low-density-lipoprotein (LDL) cholesterol in the blood. Many studies on berberine demonstrate this ability and have observed that it does not impact activity of “good” high-density lipoprotein (HDL) cholesterol.
BerbElite® also helps increase the amount of neurotransmitters like serotonin, dopamine, and oxytocin in the brain by increasing the number of receptors available. Our formula can cross the blood-brain barrier to have a direct impact on these functions.
What are the ingredients?
BerbElite® is an all-natural product and does not contain any fillers, binders, preservatives or lubricants. The first ingredient is Berberine HCL, which is pure berberine extract activated by hydrochloride. The second ingredient is our proprietary Broccoli Seed Complex, which contains Stabilized Sulforaphane as well as its “cousin” molecules, which are similar in structure and function, to help increase the bioavailability of berberine. The last ingredient is the cellulose capsule, which is composed of only cellulose and water and is gluten-free and vegan.
How much Sulforaphane is in BerbElite®?
BerbElite® contains 2mg of Stabilized Sulforaphane per capsule.
Who can take BerbElite®?
Adults and children can take BerbElite®.
Should I take it if I’m pregnant or nursing?
We recommend consulting your OBGYN before taking BerbElite®. If you have a history of gestational diabetes or are at risk for this condition, we strongly advise you to discuss treatment options with your physician to limit the risk of this condition. Consider supplementing with BerbElite® pre-pregnancy after a discussion with your physician.
Are there any known medication or supplement interactions?
Some medications may interact with the berberine in BerbElite®, including transplant, blood pressure, diabetic and sedative medications. We recommend consulting your physicians if you are adding BerbElite® to your regimen.
Does it expire?
Once BerbElite® is opened, it should be kept in your refrigerator with the desiccant sachet insert (for moisture) and consumed within 60 days. Bottles are best consumed within 1 year of production.
Do you have a certificate of analysis for BerbElite?
Yes! Every batch that we produce is tested internally and externally by a third party to confirm its Sulforaphane content. We regularly update the Certificate of Analysis on our website. Here is an example
- Tamara D.Verified BuyerI recommend this productRated 5 out of 5 stars1 year agoCardiovascular and metabolism support
Berberine is a natural compound with many health benefits such as lowering glucose, cholesterol, and blood pressure. I have noticed a difference in my dad's sugar since he has been taking this supplement. No side effects and easy to absorb for him.
- Charleann D.Verified BuyerI recommend this productRated 5 out of 5 stars1 year agoThis bottle of supplements are good for your immune system and cholesterol.
This is a great vitamin/mineral good for lowering your cholesterol and help your immune system.The price is so affor an is really good to add to your vitamin regiment.So do something good for yourself and your family.
- Texas M.Verified BuyerI recommend this productRated 5 out of 5 stars1 year agoGreat for menopause symptoms
The media could not be loaded. I read that Berberine and broccoli (combined with a milk thistle supplement which I ordered separately) are very powerful way to combat menopause symptoms. I’ve been taking two of these at night and actually really feel a difference. They do turn your pee, yellow, so don’t be alarmed in the morning! This bottle contains 60 vegan capsules, and each serving size is two capsules so it’s a months worth. it expires six months from now. I keep it at room temperature.
- Pat J. S.Verified BuyerRated 3 out of 5 stars1 year agoHard to Know if it Helped
I took this for a full month and didn't notice any impact on sleep or mood. I didn't get sick during that month, so perhaps it supported my immune system. It's hard to evaluate a product like this, but I probably wouldn't buy it again if I didn't see measurable results.
- Brian W.Verified BuyerI recommend this productRated 4 out of 5 stars1 year agoBerberine may actually help manage type 2 diabetes
I have heard berberine may lower blood glucose while encouraging insulin sensitivity. It is also purported to help lower cholesterol. There have been studies that bear some of this out. In one such study the conclusions reads: “In summary, that berberine is a potent oral hypoglycemic agent with modest effect on lipid metabolism. It is safe and the cost of treatment by berberine is very low. It may serve as a new drug candidate in the treatment of type 2 diabetes. However, this is a pilot study. The efficacy of berberine needs to be tested in a much larger population and characterized as a function of the known duration of the diabetes. Further studies are needed to evaluate the action of berberine on type 2 diabetes in other ethnic groups.”There really aren’t many ways to lower one’s blood glucose levels. If this works, it will certainly be a boon to many. When I asked my doctor recently he said, “well you can do more weight training.” And that’s it. Of course, one can also change one’s diet which surprisingly, he didn’t mention. The truth is, for many people, it’s extremely difficult to change one’s diet in order to turn around Type 2 diabetes.During the pandemic I found myself craving sweets as a means to comfort myself from all the stress and lockdowns. Not surprisingly, my blood glucose levels crept up. So I’m going to take this stuff for a few months and see what it does. I’ll take another A1C in three or four months. I will be able to compare my A1c from a couple weeks…
