Designs For Health
Berb-Evail is a formula that provides the body with high-potency berberine – a plant alkaloid, also known as Berberis aristate. The primary purpose of the product is to support optimal insulin and blood sugar levels, as well as promote intestinal and liver health. In addition, berberine is also evidenced to carry potent antimicrobial qualities.
Berb-Evail is manufactured using advanced technology that aims superior absorption of the key ingredient in the formula. The manufacturer, Designs for Health, implements the Designs for Health EvailTM technology, which boosts both the delivery and absorption of berberine. This all-natural process excludes potentially harmful substances while including a proprietary blend of vitamin E, non-soy derived lecithin, and MCT (medium-chain triglycerides) oils.
Maintaining the body’s normal functions and ensuring it can properly regulate blood sugar is critical to our overall health. Among the factors that support proper insulin sensitivity and blood sugar regulation are effective stress management, regular physical activity, a healthy diet., and good quality sleep. Nevertheless, even people following a balanced exercise and diet regime and a healthy lifestyle overall can benefit from targeted supplementation as a means to improve these positive changes. This is where berberine comes into the equation, giving the body a much-needed boost that helps maintain healthy insulin and blood sugar levels. The great news about berberine is that it is a natural compound found in the stems, rhizomes, roots, and bark of several plants that are widely used in Chinese and botanical medicine. Besides Berberis aristate (berberine), these also include barberry, Oregon grape, and goldenseal. Using natural compounds means that we save ourselves the adverse side effects of pharmaceutical medications that we may have to take for the same purpose.
When it comes to the health benefits of berberine intake (those related to the promotion of health insulin and blood glucose levels), berberine initiates a series of mechanisms/processes inside the human body. At a cellular level, for example, berberine is found to help limit the activity of specific enzymes that live in the small intestine, whose role is to digest carbohydrates. This leads to the absorption of less glucose into the bloodstream, which, in turn, results in the regulation of healthy glucose. It should be noted that vinegar has the exact same effect, which has been long recognized for its role in promoting healthy blood sugar levels.
A health hazard that comes from suboptimal blood glucose and insulin is a buildup of liver fat, which gradually slows down its normal function, eventually causing it to malfunction. Berberine carries attributes that may even assist in the reduction of this unwanted outcome.
All that aside, berberine is also used for its immune system-promoting qualities. Studies suggest that this powerful agent can help fortify and strengthen the immune system and by supporting the natural defenses of the body against bacteria. Part of its activity is to foster a healthy intestinal flora by helping to control the growth of health-harming bacteria in the gut. It is widely known by now that a healthy gut microbiome is closely associated with a healthy metabolism, which is tied to proper glucose control.

The therapeutic use of berberine goes back to some millennia. The first recorded mention of the plant as a medical herbal ingredient is found in The Divine Farmer’s Materia Medica – an ancient Chinese book, at around 3000 BCE. In Chinese medicine, berberine is touted for its qualities of counteracting poison, quenching fire, and clearing damp-heat.
The formula contains pure berberine that is derived from the bark of Berberis aristate plant. Other compounds include the ingredients of the soft gel, which are purified water, curcumin, glycerin, bovine gelatin, sunflower lecithin, high gamma tocopherol, vitamin E, and medium-chain triglycerides (MTC).
The formula is heat-sensitive, non-GMO, and does NOT include soy-free, gluten, or dairy.
