Banaba Leaf Extract

This herb has been used as traditional medicine in the Philippines to treat diabetes and kidney diseases.

It is also used in sugar control supplements and used with creatine while low carb dieting. This is because the leaves act as a insulin mimicker by activating insulin receptors.

Corosolic acid is touted as one of the main ingredients responsible for the insulin mimicking action.

The typical dosage is 30-50mg banaba leaf extract standardized for corosolic acid. Athletes should take it with their post-workout shake containing creatine.
