Banaba Leaf

Banaba, also known as Lagerstroemia, is a plant whose leaves have been used to help with the treatment of diabetes.  Studies are being conducted on corosolic acid, a substance found in the banaba leaves and flowers that have an insulin-like effect on the lowering of glucose in the body.  In isolated cells, glucose uptake has actually been stimulated.  The average human response is a 10-15% decrease in blood sugar levels within two hours of ingestion.

Corosolic acid has also demonstrated the ability to suppress or reduce the absorption and digestion of carbohydrates and assist in their deposition into cells from the blood stream; resulting in a lower blood sugar level. Banaba is also being researched for its ability to suppress the appetite and its benefits as a weight loss supplement, especially in individuals who are overweight and have elevated blood sugar levels.
