As you read these reports, keep in mind that, as I’ve mentioned before, you can’t stop a Candida infestation from growing without an ample supply of beneficial flora in the intestines.
On the surface, berberine may look like just another strong antifungal, which is exactly what it is. However, looking into the research on berberine, you begin to see the negative effects of this herb. Below are some of the studies to which I am referring.
