After reading another review about this product being dead on arrival I tried to culture it myself, and there was absolutely zero bacteriological activity after 24 hrs. This stuff is a placebo powder at best.

But they're definitely NOT chewable.

To combat my diabetes i've tried just about everything, blueberry, r-ala, ala, astaxanthin, ginger, turmeric, milk thistle, quercetin, cinnamon, ubiquinol, sam-e etc etc etc. This supplement was the first thing that made a noticeable difference to my fasting blood sugar levels (dropped from 110 to 87). Unfortunately this came at a cost to me, severe stomach pains lasting about 20 hours. I couldn't sleep from the pains (periodic stabbing pain in the stomach/liver region). After taking the berberine the first time i thought it may just be a co-incidence so i waited a couple of weeks (pain free) before trying them again and i was floored by the pains again (but my blood sugar dropped again). So i had to throw these out and add berberine to my blacklist. I'm giving this product a 3 because clearly it was effective at lowering my blood sugar levels, but my personal side effects prohibit me from taking it, but other people maybe able to stomach it, and if you can, it's brilliant.

Taking these tablets before bed helped me sleep, but i woke up with a slight (but annoying) headache behind my eyes that lasted all day. Stopping this supplement stopped the headaches, and starting them again brought back the headaches. Unfortunately for me it's not worth the tradeoff.

I took these for a bad UTI (lots of blood in urine). They did not help at all.
