Description

 

Barberry also known as Zerishk is a bush native to Asia, Europe the Middle East, and North Africa that’s been naturalized to many regions of North America. It was thought to increase the flow bile, which is why it was used for liver and gallbladder problems. Topically it was recommended to treat skin conditions like eczema, psoriasis, and acne, as well as minor wounds.
The active constituents in barberry are thought to be the isoquinoline alkaloids, particularly berberine. Alkaloids are a class of naturally occurring organic nitrogen-containing bases; other well-known alkaloids include morphine, strychnine, quinine, ephedrine, and nicotine. The alkaloids in barberry or zerishk are found in the root, rhizome, and stem bark of the plant. Other herbs that contain berberine are goldenseal (which has a higher concentration of berberine than barberry), the Chinese herb Coptis, and Oregon grape.
