Paradise Banaba leaf is a potent 12:1 concentration. Its true full spectrum extraction ensures all active and synergistic constituents are retained in the balanced ratio nature intended without the use of toxic solvents, harsh chemicals or fractionizing gases.
Banaba leaf extract has actions in stimulating glucose transport into cells and can help maintain healthy blood sugar levels. Fluctuations in blood sugar are related to appetite and various food cravings for carbohydrates such as breads and sweets. Banaba leaf may be a healthy way to support a more slender body through appetite and sugar control.

Banaba seems to shuttle insulin into the cells and keeps my blood sugar level down after a meal. It also seems to be helping clear my fatty liver. Taking banaba, gymnema sylvestra, cinnamon, a multi-vitamin and fish/flax oils, moving around more, and eating a low-fat diet of fish, egg whites, and non-starchy vegetables has brought my blood sugar to normal from an average of 345. (I take 6 capsules with each meal.) I also take Jarrow Adrenal Optimizer.
we were working with chromium, and this took us an extra step beyond that; i observed a reduction in urine flow in my girlfriend, who urinates excessively due to a problem with blood sugar. the dose we used was 5 caps 15 minutes before a meal, three times a day. i understand bodybuilders take higher doses. this product does not contain any sort of chemical filler, and the size is great for the price. i wish iherb sold a higher concentration extract of corosolic acid, say one at 30% corosolic acid content, as we would be taking more; studies found the active compound stimulates glu4 production, which is a compound produced after excercise to do what insulin does; this results in the benefits of insulin without insulin, though glu4 delivers nutrients exclusively to muscle cells while depriving fat cells.
Really helps with gymnema

I have been taking this for the past 4 months. It has kept my type II diabetes under control. 3x a day. Lately my blood glucose has crept back up but it's partly because I have not stuck to my very careful diet (due to great moments of home stress caring for my 94 year old Mom affected by ever increasing Alzheimers. I see in other reviews that some take 3x 2er day or 5 caps per day. I will try to increase the dosage when I know I have been lax in my diet. I have the feeling it will help as if I forget to take a dose, the blood sugar sneaks back up until the next day after the standard 3x1 per day. NB feet tingling due to Metformin side effects has stopped since taking the gymnema/banaba leaf.
Uncertain about this

Have taken 3 capsules per day for more than a month now, and have not noted any difference at all. But: I have a diabetes type II with blood suger values that are rather good as it is without the use of any drugs. So maybe it is contributing for some benefit after all...
