That's in my interview with Carrie Bennett. We touched on all about her quantum health strategies and how improved her mood and energy, things such as grounding morning sunlight, exclusion zone water. We touched on mitochondrial support through infrared saunas and much, much more. So definitely check out my interview with Carrie Bennett and on today's micro podcast, I'm gonna touch on a study regarding berberine and its effects on arterial plaque. Now, berberine's a natural product that's been used in Chinese medicine for over 3000 years. It actually originally was used to treat diarrhea anti, it was, it was the bacterial cause diarrhea as an over-the-counter drug in China for decades.
Brian (1m 26s):
And so they, this group that, this study's been studying it since 2004 and they've, they've found that it's been safe and effective medicine for hyperlipidemia, excuse me, and type two diabetes. So definitely if you wanna check out the study, I'm gonna put a link in the show notes. You can read a little bit more into it. I'm gonna sort of give you the high level, but the, one of the main conclusions was the fact that scientists found that berberine can decrease arterial plaque in the cur curated artery by some 3.2% after 16 weeks of use. They write that 21 patients with atherosclerosis exhibited the average decrease of plaque score by 3.2% after oral burberine 500, a hundred milligram grams, excuse me, 500 milligrams twice daily for four months.
Brian (2m 19s):
So pretty interesting cool study here. I'll leave a a link in the show notes so you can read a little bit more. But you know, it's been something that's been used in Chinese medicine forever and now it's starting to come to the states a little bit more. There was also some cool things in the study that you can check out where it showed the plaque size in patients with ath atherosclerosis and how it decreased over a four month treatment period. So the thing about atherosclerosis, it's very difficult to treat once the platforms and like currently the regimen mainly in the states for the most part is a combination of statins and anticoagulant drugs such as aspirin.
Brian (3m 3s):
But essentially they're trying to look for more safe and effective ways to help with atherosclerosis. And so the conclusion really from the study was that berberine, the result from these atherosclerotic patients was something that they're gonna try start using for future treatment and prevention of plaque formation in clinical practice. So really interesting study and if you wanna read more, like I said, I'll put put it in the show notes. If you have any questions, feel free to put it in the comments, but thought this was would be a beneficial sort of natural study that was done fairly recently.
Brian (3m 43s):
