Wonder Compound Attacks Autoimmune Disorders
When it comes to autoimmune disorders, the location of the attack determines the disease.
If your immune system attacks your joints… rheumatoid arthritis.
If it attacks your intestines… Crohn’s disease.
If it attacks your central nervous system… multiple sclerosis.
You get the picture.
Mainstream medicine addresses each autoimmune disease with a different drug… none of which offer a cure.
Fortunately, Mother Nature has a wonder compound that is effective against multiple autoimmune diseases.
And it’s easy to get your hands on.
It’s probably one of the most effective natural supplements you’ve never heard of: berberine.
It’s a compound found in several different plants, and it’s been used in traditional Chinese medicine for centuries.
Now modern Western medicine is finally starting to see what the ancient healers knew all along… berberine is one of nature’s wonder drugs.
Its list of benefits range from reducing blood sugar levels to reducing heart disease risk to fighting depression.
But today, I want to focus on its effects against autoimmune disorders.
In one study, when mice with colitis were given berberine for three days, it reduced the inflammation and injury in the intestines, while also reducing disease-causing inflammation.
In another study, berberine improved the symptoms of mice with allergies, and reduced levels of markers of allergic inflammation like IgE (immunoglobulin E) and white blood cell count.
And in yet another study, giving berberine to mice with rheumatoid arthritis led to the death of malfunctioning dendritic cells, an immune cell that plays a major role in autoimmune disorders.
And in mice with type 1 diabetes (an autoimmune condition in which the body attacks cells that produce insulin), berberine reduced levels of two immune cells that promote inflammation and that characterizes type 1 diabetes (Th1 and Th17).
If you’re interested in giving berberine a try for yourself, it is widely available in supplement stores and on amazon.com.
