OREGON GRAPE ROOT
The bitter compounds in Oregon Grape stimulate bile release from the liver and gallbladder, which in turn is supportive to the skin, gastrointestinal tract, and immune system. Oregon Grape root is considered specific for conditions of heat paired with dryness, as its bitter properties promote the release of fluids in the body (saliva, bile, enzymes), and by supporting the functions of the liver, Oregon Grape root can assist the body’s detoxification processes which help to clear heat from the body. Berberine has been the subject of numerous clinical trials. Isolated berberine has diverse actions and uses, which include use in eye drops, use for supporting a healthy glycemic response, a healthy immune response, and healthy cardiovascular function.
