What are the properties of GlucoFit®?
Banaba extracts (Lagerstroemia speciosa L.) have been used for many year in popular medicine as a remedy for diabetes, its first study was published in 1940. This review sums up the current literature about banaba and its components.
The hypoglycemic effect of Lagestroemia has been attributed both to corosolic acid and ellagitannins. There are several studies on animals, humans, and in vitro systems by using water-soluble banaba leaves extract standardized to corosolic acid and purified corosolic acid and ellagitannins.
It has been proven that pure corosolic acid reduces the levels of sugar in blood after 60 minutes in humans. Corosolic acid also exhibits anti-hyperlipidemic, antioxidant, anti-inflammatory, anti-fungal, anti-viral, anti-neoplasic, and osteoblastic activities. Banaba extract, corosolic acid and other constituents can be beneficial to treat the symptoms related to the metabolic syndrome, apart from providing other benefits for health. (1)
