Metformin: A Natural Supplement for Prednisone Users

Metformin, an affordable and natural supplement found in plants like French Lilac (Galega officinalis), also known as Goat’s Rue, is an effective alternative to prevent Prednisone’s side effects.

Research has shown it helps improve glycemic control and insulin resistance while also having anti-aging properties. It’s safe and can easily be acquired with an online doctor’s appointment. Its effectiveness and safety still need to be verified through further research.

How does Metformin do it?

“Glucocorticoids influence the AMPK signaling pathway in opposite ways and that the metformin effect is able to override the cortisol effect”


Metformin is a natural supplement derived from French Lilac, Goat’s Rue and Galega of Officinalis that is an effective treatment for managing the side effects of taking Prednisone. In a medical study, it was proven to reduce insulin resistance, glycemic control, and fasting glucose and insulin. It also has anti-aging properties and helps reduce cortisol on the AMPK signaling pathways. Metformin is safe, affordable and easy to acquire through a telemedicine appointment, and potentially helps to reduce side effects from Prednisone such as osteoporosis and weight gain as well as high blood sugar. It is a promising alternative to conventional treatments, though still further research is needed to confirm its efficacy and safety.
