It contains berberine which stimulates white blood count and boosts immunity with the added benefits of reducing infections and healing wounds. Berberine has been shown to inhibit the growth of bacteria, viruses, yeasts, protozoans and mould and helps the immune system function better.
Barberry is used to ease inflammation and infection of the urinary (bladder and urinary tract infections), gastrointestinal, and respiratory tracts (sore throat, nasal congestion, sinusitis, bronchitis), as well as candida (yeast) infections of the skin or vagina. Barberry extract may also improve symptoms of certain skin conditions including psoriasis and acne.
