Barberry is a small shrub with tart, edible berries and bright yellow roots which contain the plant constituent berberine. Barberry root has been used for millennia by traditional systems of healing worldwide for its wellness-supporting properties. Our barberry powder is milled from Berberis vulgaris. Barberry root powder can used in tincturing, topical applications, or encapsulating.
The barberry is a tall shrub with gray, thorny branches. Bright yellow flowers bloom in the late spring become dark, drooping bunches of red berries in the fall. Puckery but less bitter than cranberries, ripe barberries can be used to make jam. Both the berries and the bark are used traditionally. Barberry is a member of the Berberidaceae family.
