Berberine is a compound extracted from a variety of herbs including European barberry, goldenseal, goldthread, Oregon grape, phellodendron, and tree tumeric. It is being supplemented for its anti-diabetic effects, which rival the potency of some pharmaceuticals. Also, it might be able to kill bacteria thus being an effective treatment to trachoma, a bacterial infection that frequently causes blindness.
