About this Episode

Calling in all the way from Australia, Kerry Bone joins John Troup, PhD, on the WholisticMatters podcast series to talk about berberine, phellodendron, and black cumin seed. Bone describes the cardiovascular and digestive support provided by berberine, and the important herbal matrix provided by the Chinese herb phellodendron as a source of berberine. Phellodendron is associated with supporting health in cases of metabolic syndrome, type 2 diabetes, and cardiovascular disease.

Bone also describes the benefits of black cumin seed, an herb continuously being enriched by a large amount of clinical trial activity generating new evidence and applications. Bone describes black cumin seed as the “number one herb in allergy” and, jokingly, as the “cure for every disease, except death.”

Bone is the Director of Research and Development at MediHerb, a company he co-founded in 1986 that produces herbal products for health care professionals. He has written six textbooks defining principles and practices of phytotherapy, is an advocate of wholistic health, and is passionate about producing “good science” to provide health care providers looking to do more with herbal care.
