What is Banaba Leaf Extract powder?

Lagerstroemia speciosa, commonly known as banaba, is a tropical tree widely grown in the Philippines. Traditional practitioners (and people looking for natural complements to their health management strategies) use it as antidiabetic.

Water and methanol (alcohol) extracts of this tree’s leaves are sold in capsule form in market. It can inhibit uptake (digestion and absorption) of carbohydrates to a degree, and can also aid in their deposition into cells from the blood stream (resulting in a reduction in blood sugar). The capsules often contain other substances such as green tea, green coffee, tamarind, gymnema, black pepper, and/or metals like vanadium and magnesium.

Banaba Leaf Extract powder uses

Lagerstroemia is the species of plant commonly known as Banaba. It is a herb with a blend of compounds that, holistically, seem to be catered towards being anti-diabetic in nature.

Banaba— known as the giant crape myrtle—is a tree native to Southeast Asia, where banaba has long been used in traditional medicine to treat diabetes and kidney conditions.

Banaba leaf has recently gained some renown in the West due to several studies that indicate it may be able to mediate some of the complications of diabetes and has an overall positive effect on blood-sugar (glucose) levels.

Banaba leaf extract contains a triterpenoid compound known as corosolic acid which has actions in stimulating glucose transport into cells. As such, banaba leaf extract plays a role in regulating levels of blood sugar and insulin in the blood.

Banaba Leaf Extract powder doage

An oral supplement of 3,000mg of the leaf extract from Banaba appears to be used with efficacy. Other Banaba supplements may have concentrated supplements which increase the corosolic acid content, in which a 2:1 extract of 1,500mg would be equivalent to the 3,000mg leaf extract.

Although the above dose is currently recommended, it is not known if this is the optimal dose or not. Furthermore, it is not known whether or not this supplement needs to be taken with meals (although it is recommended out of prudency for the purposes of helping glucose tolerance to take it with meals). Speak with your doctor before supplementing, and never use banaba in place of a prescribed medication or recommendation from a medical professional.
