Herbal Options

Most of the berberine supplements on the market seem to be made from Berberis aristata, which is not usually sold at herb houses. However, Berberis vulgaris (Barberry) is widely available and is also useful for diabetes. The tincture is easy to make and would be a lot cheaper (and have a much better shelf life) than Berberine supplements.

There are also other herbs that are useful for diabetics: Ivy gourd (Cephalandra indica/Coccinia grandis), Syzygium jambolanum, Bitter melon (Momordica charantia), Agaricus blazei mushroom, Chaga mushroom, and Ceylon cinnamon (Cinnamomum verum/Cinnamomum ceylanicum). All of these herbs are available from reputable herb houses in the US and Canada.

Cephalandra indica (which is how it is known homeopathically) and Coccinia grandis (which is how it is known herbally). Colloquially, the herb is known as bimba and ivy gourd. Incidentally, this plant can be grown in most of the US. A perennial in places like CA and FL; but treated as an annual in colder regions. The tincture is fairly expensive to buy; OHM and Herbie’s Herbs are the only places I know that carry it. But it is inexpensive and easy to make. If you would like more information on making your own tinctures contact your regional health and wellness coordinator.

Tincture Recipes

Berberis vulgaris (Barberry) tincture is made with the dried root, in a 1:5 herb-to-liquid ratio, with the liquid being 50% alcohol. Vinegar must be added for the extraction of the alkaloids. Coccinia grandis tincture is made with the dried leaf, in a 1:5 leaf-to-liquid ratio. The liquid is 25% alcohol, and vinegar must be added in order to extract the alkaloids. Syzygium jambolanum tincture is made in a 1:5 seed-to-liquid ratio, with the liquid being 65% alcohol. Vinegar must be added for extracting the alkaloids.
