3. Indications and Uses

As a traditional medicine or dietary supplement, berberine has showed some activity against fungal infections, Candida albicans, yeast, parasites, and bacterial/viral infections.Berberine seems to exert synergistic effects with fluconazole even in drug-resistant Candida albicans infections. Some research has  been undertaken into  possible use against MRSA infection; Berberine is considered an ineffective antibiotic.However, when applied in vitro and in combination with methoxyhydnocarpin, an inhibitor of multidrug resistance pumps, berberine inhibits growth of Staphylococcus aureus; Berberine is a component of some eye drop formulations. There is some evidence that it is useful in the treatment of trachoma,and it has been a standard treatment for leishmaniasis.Berberine prevents and supresses proinflammatory cytokines, E-selectin, and genes,  and increases adiponectin expression  which partly explains its versatile health effects. Berberine is a nucleic acid-binding isoquinolone  alkaloid with wide potential therapeutic properties.
