Lipoic acid is best known for its antioxidant properties and its ability to support healthy insulin secretion and sensitivity.** It is also a key cofactor for mitochondrial enzymes involved in cellular metabolism and energy (ATP) production.

Berberine Synergy is a combination of Berberine and Alpha Lipoic Acid (ALA), which is what makes this supplement different to Berb-Avail.
Berberine is known as a useful supplement if you are looking to manage your blood sugar levels and improve insulin sensitivity.
With the addition of ALA, you get a strong antioxidant providing extra benefits.This would be a good choice for someone who is pre-diabetic, diabetic or is looking to significantly improve their blood markers and insulin sensitivity.
Key Ingredients and Benefits
Both ingredients reduce blood sugar levels, improve the metabolism of carbs and fats and will help insulin function better. Whilst ALA will help to prevent damage to the nerves and eyes by reducing oxidative stress.
Berberine has been shown to be effective with around 1g supplemented per day, and with ALA it shows 300-600mg to be effective, so a good dosage would be around 3 capsules.
As with anything, consult your practitioner to get the best advice for yourself.
