Banaba, or Lagerstroemia speciosa, is a plant recognized as a natural insulin mimetic. For medicinal purposes, mainly leaves (less often bark) are used, which contain numerous biologically active compounds, including the most potent corosolic acid. It exerts a great influence on glucose metabolism and, as a result, it reduces blood sugar levels. In turn, glycemic stabilization favors the reduction of excessive appetite and cravings for carbohydrates and sweet foods, which makes it easier to achieve and maintain healthy body weight.
Preparations based on Banaba leaves are recommended primarily to people struggling with glucose-insulin disorders, insulin resistance or metabolic syndrome. They can be considered as an element of prophylaxis of type 2 diabetes. Supplements in this category may also appeal to people striving for weight reduction. They will ideally suit when excess fat arose as a result of consuming a large amount of carbohydrates or is the effect of disturbances in carbohydrate metabolism.
Our offer includes the highest quality supplements based on Banaba leaves. We offer both standard extracts and highly concentrated extracts, standardized for the content of corosolic acid.
