El uso mágico de la berberina en la acuicultura

Efectos farmacológicos de la berberina

Berberina is a natural alkaloid compound found in many medicinal plants. Berberine has many important biological properties, including antimicrobial, antifungal, anti-inflammatory, and immunomodulatory properties. Because of these properties, berberine is considered a potential candidate for aquaculture applications.

The potential benefits of aquatic berberine

Aquatic berberine is a natural alkaloid compound found in many medicinal plants, including cornucopa, bitter melon, and helioginseng. Berberine has many important biological properties, including antimicrobial, antifungal, anti-inflammatory, and immunomodulatory properties. Because of these properties, berberine is considered a potential candidate for aquaculture applications.

Some of the potential benefits of berberine include

1, antibacterial: Berberine is effective against many gram-negative and Gram-positive bacteria commonly found in aquaculture, including: Vibrio, aeromonas, streptococcus and pseudomonas. Berberine can inhibit bacterial growth by damaging cell membranes and inhibiting protein synthesis.

2, anti-fungal: Berberine can also be effective against a variety of aquatic fungal pathogens, including water fungi. Berberine can inhibit fungal growth by inhibiting the synthesis of ergosterol, an important component of fungal cell membrane.

3, anti-inflammatory: Berberine can inhibit the inflammatory response caused by bacteria, viruses or parasites. Berberine can reduce inflammatory symptoms such as swelling, redness, and pain.

4, immune regulation: Berberine can regulate the immune system of aquatic animals, helping to enhance disease resistance. Berberine can stimulate the activity of immune cells and increase the production of antioxidants.

Method using berberine

1, the use of powdered berberine: this is the easiest way to use. Just mix berberine powder into feed, stir well and feed to fish and shrimp. However, it should be noted that when feeding berberine to shrimp and fish (aquaculture), the berberine mixture and feed are then coated with a layer of adhesive to avoid decomposition when the feed enters the water body.

2, use berberine in solution form: Because berberine is naturally insoluble in water, berberine cannot be dissolved with water. If you want to use berberine in solution form, you must dissolve berberine with alcohol.

3, berberine products stored in a cool, dry place, avoid direct sunlight.
