History: Barberry Bark is derived from dried Berberis vulgaris root. The bark is among the many herbs that have been commonly used among Indians of North America for centuries to treat liver disease.

They would use the powder in combination with organic herbs, such as Fennel Seed, as a vaccine against disease.
