In this short video, we’re going to talk about metformin. Metformin is usually used for conditions like diabetes type 2 and PCOS. This medication helps increase sensitivity to insulin. It improves insulin resistance, and it suppresses glucose production from the liver.  

The problems with metformin:
 1. The root cause of the problem is rarely addressed, like high levels of sugar in the diet and frequent eating. 

2. It has side effects and a boxed warning, which is a severe warning. 

Potential side effects of metformin:
• Diarrhea
• Nausea 
• Abdominal pain 
• Gas
• Increased lactic acid 
• It could block the absorption of vitamin B12 and folic acid

Natural metformin alternatives you can use in addition to metformin (check with your doctor before taking this recommendation):
• Berberine 
• Cinnamon 
• Goat’s rue 
• Green tea 
• Bitter melon
