Turn on Your Metabolic Master Switch with Berberine
By Jen Morganti, ND

Berberine is a specific active phytochemical (plant chemical) that can be found naturally in many different plants, including Phellodendron amurense, Hydrastis Canadensis (best known
as goldenseal), Mahonia aquifolium or Berberis aquifolium (also known as Oregon grape), Rhizoma Coptidis, Coptis chinensis
(known as goldenthread), and Berberis vulgaris (also known as barberry). Many of these plants that are rich in berberine are
native to Asian countries and have been incorporated into Ayurvedic and Chinese medicine for hundreds or thousands of years. Berberine is most concentrated in the root and sometimes the berries of a plant. Its bright yellow color is so
rich that it can also be used as dye, known as "natural yellow 18". 

Berberine is extracted from plants to produce berberine hydrochloride or berberine sulphate. There is also a synthetic form of berberine, which is sold as a medication in other countries for gastrointestinal benefits. Read more

Ask Our Wellness Educators

Dear NEEDS Wellness Educators, 
What protocols are available to improve adrenal function when my adrenals have been depleted for decades? 
~ MP

Dear MP, 
One of the reasons depleted adrenals may make you feel fatigued is because you may be low in cortisol. This pair of glands actually produces the hormone cortisol, which under healthy conditions is secreted in the morning to help us wake up—making us feel alert, energized, and ready to start the day. Cortisol is also secreted in response to stress, which helps the body adapt to the stressor and provides the necessary boost of energy to respond appropriately. In the case of a life-threatening stress, cortisol and adrenaline are secreted to initiate the "fight or flight" response—a physiological reaction that occurs in response to a perceived harmful event, attack, or threat to survival. 

Cortisol is important to our daily sleep/ wake cycle and to handle occasional stress. But, under continual stress it's oversecreted which can be draining to the adrenals. Over time, the adrenals have a weaker response to stress and cortisol levels become too low which causes chronic fatigue, low immunity, and other symptoms. When the adrenals are depleted, it can also lead to an imbalance in the entire endocrine hormone system.

The Power of Activated Vitamin B

B vitamins are a group of essential, water-soluble vitamins that every cell in your body, particularly nerve cells, utilizes every second of every day. These vitamins are crucial to many of our body's functions, such as breaking down carbohydrates for energy production and keeping up your metabolism, mood, hormones, and nervous system functions—just to name a few. 

Unfortunately, there are several factors that deplete these critical nutrients. Refined sugar and star ches demand B vitamins to metabolize and convert into energy. Alcohol can quickly deplete B vitamin stores in your body. Caffeine is a diuretic and causes B vitamins to be flushed out of your body at a faster rate. Stress causes your body to utilize B vitamins as a coping mechanism, rapidly depleting these nutrients. Certain medications can leach onto B vitamins in your body and interfer e with proper utilization. Also since B vitamins are water-soluble, your body cannot store them—meaning they are quickly excreted through urination. Read more

Unlock the Secrets to Healthy Aging

As we age, we begin to feel less like ourselves. Our immune system begins to weaken, our skin starts to age, and we begin to suffer from poor blood circulation. This can be challenging to deal with, but now more and more Americans are learning new ways to continue to support a healthy lifestyle—including adding nutritional supplements to their diet.

Quality of Life® was established with the mission to provide consumers with access to lifechanging nutritional supplements. Their extensive line of products include award-winning immune support, healthy aging products, and more! 

AHCC®: The World's Most Researched Specialty Immune Supplement 
The older we become the riskier and more life-threatening something as mild as the flu can be, so it is crucial to keep our immune systems as strong as possible. AHCC® is a unique, cultured mushroom mycelia extract that is rich in alpha glucans and backed by over 20 human clinical studies.* 

Human and animal research has demonstrated that AHCC® enhances immunity by increasing cytokine production, natural killer cell activity levels, and T-cell counts and activity.* Unlike most other medicinal mushroom extracts, AHCC® has a very low molecular weight of just 5,000 Daltons, which allows for better absorption by the body. Read more
