I like the idea of everyone keeping track of their blood pressure, blood sugar and RHR daily to help keep everything in check so I'll go first.

BP, 115/78
HR, 66
BG, 7.5 (after coffee with honey)

Who's next? ;)

Anyone have any success using berberine to lower glucose?
Yes, it was effective for me.


Unfortunately, it was equally as effective at giving me mil-spec farts and general GI distress.

Yes, tried it for a while and unlike @TODAY it was not effective for me.
You had some issues with insulin sensitivity beforehand, yeah?

My BG has always been normal. The berberine was mostly just a not so fun experiment, but it did lower my fasted BG by a few points.

Yeah, my insulin sensitivity was in pre diabetes land before. So maybe I just expected too much from it.

I tried taking it before every meal, and before bed, and it never seemed to make an obvious difference.

I haven't tried berberine, but Alpha-Lipoic Acid dropped my BG from mid 90's to low-mid 80's in about two months time.

I take berberine and bromelain with every high protein meal, but that's not for BG control, more as to prevent the GNG cycle from happening to stay in ketosis on a higher protein diet. I only just got my BG meter this past week, so it'll be a few weeks before I can determine if it's having any significant effects on my BG.

I tried the most potent Berberine I could find.

When it's super potent like mine was it is some nasty shit. It does work though.

I was making vanilla protein shakes with blueberries at the time. It turned my protein shake from blue/purple to yellow/green. Tasted really bitter and nasty. So if you are going to do Berberine, I do not recommend pulling the capsules apart!

To control blood sugar I use Ceylon cinnamon. It's a much better tasting way to regulate your blood sugar. One pound of Anthony's is $12.49 on Amazon. You only need a small amount like 1/8 or 1/4 teaspoon at a time.

Then my Naturelo One A Day Multivitamin for Men includes Chromium which is also supposed to help.

I do 500mg right before meals, usually 3-4x a day. I also take bioperine with it to help increase its absorption.
I was doing the same, made my own caps. I can confirm what @Skullcrusher said; I would get some slight dust on the outside of the capsule and it tasted like absolute ass. 😂

Naw
My ass is cheating
Just finished DNP so BG is low as fuck.
Running Lisinopril so BP is rockstar.

I'm taking too many PEDs to consider this fair
