Standardized Extract for Optimal Blood Sugar Support
Banaba leaf extract comes from the banaba leaf - a plant native to the Philippines, India and other Asian countries - and has been used in medicine for a number of years for the management of blood sugar and diabetes.
One of the things you're going to like about banaba leaf is how thoroughly it's been tested. Because it's got such a long history of folk use, researchers have been quite curious to see what it is about this plant that makes it so effective. Some of the earliest studies of banaba leaf are almost 80 years old.
One of the main compounds - the one we believe plays the lead role in healing - is called corosolic acid. Corosolic acid is believed to have a strong effect on blood sugar levels, can calm inflammation, is an antioxidant, and it even helps with protein kinase C inhibition activity. From what research shows, within 60 minutes of glucose introduction, corosolic acid will cause blood sugars to drop around 10-15%.
The other compounds present in banaba leaf are ellagitannin (a polyphenol) called lagerstroemin.
Banaba leaf is also currently being researched for its ability to help support:
- kidney health
- blood pressure
- urinary function (helps ease urination)
- cholesterol level
If you just read that headline and thought I misspelled "banana," you'd be wrong...I did not misspell banana.As you can see, I spelled it correctly twice here; I've even got a spell-checking app to help make sure I don't goof up...
