"Overall, galangin in combination with berberine presented outstanding synergistic anticancer role in vitro and in vivo, indicating that the beneficial combination of galangin and berberine might provide a promising treatment for patients with oesophageal carcinoma."

Thank you Johan. It looks like Galangin can be found in Alpinia officinarum, known as lesser galangal. Galangal Root its available online as a food supplement.

Kind regards,
Daniel
