It’s always interesting asking local business operators how they ended up…
🌿Coptis – Huang lian (Coptis Chinensis)
As you can imagine, I’ve been hauling around a few supplements during my travels to strengthen my immune system. 🤞Though the worst of the virus has (hopefully!) passed, if I do get it, I want to fight it off quickly. Enter Coptis, one of the four important herbs in my infection-fighting herbal formulation, designed to take at the first sign of a respiratory infection.
Coptis is an important herb used for viral infections, skin and gastrointestinal conditions. The Chinese name translates to “golden threads” due to the intense golden color indicative of the high berberine content. 🧡Berberine has powerful antiviral and immune supportive properties, including supporting natural killer cell function, which is important for a robust immune response.
Each herb in my formulation addresses different aspects of a viral infection and stimulates a robust immune response. This formulation is available through my quick immune consult, as are other strategies to prevent and support immune infections.

In addition to immune support, Coptis is a profound herb for a variety of conditions. It has been shown to help regulate glucose control and testosterone production, so it’s a good herb for those with diabetes or PCOS. It also has an affinity for the digestive system and therefore useful for lingering GI infections and improving the gut microbiome.
👉Note, Berberine-containing plants are not recommended for use during pregnancy…and as with most herbs, it is best to consult a professional before taking them, as some herbs can counteract or increase the actions of prescription medications and can be contraindicated for certain conditions.
