Oilcure Banaba leaf powder benefits:
Banaba for Diabetes: Banaba leaf, not to be confused with “banana” leaf, has been used for thousands of years in India and the Philippines to naturally treat diabetes and low blood sugar levels. While in India, Banaba is also used in Ayurvedic medicine for the treatment of diabetes. The Banaba leaves and flowers contain corrosolic acid, a substance being studied for its insulin-like effect of lowering the glucose in the body. Findings from laboratory studies and animal-based research suggest that banaba helps control diabetes. In a study published in Bioscience, Biotechnology, and Biochemistry in 1996, for instance, scientists demonstrated that treating diabetic mice with banaba extract helped protect against elevated blood sugar levels. In addition, banaba appeared to reduce total cholesterol levels. In 2003, the Journal of Ethnopharmacology published a study finding that type 2 diabetes patients treated with banaba extract for two weeks experienced a significant reduction in blood sugar levels.
In fact, some studies have shown that it can help lower blood sugar within sixty minutes. It has also been shown to help correct leptin problems and food cravings that are typically found in overweight individuals who have elevated blood sugar.
Weight Loss: Banaba helps fight obesity, according to a study published in the Journal of Nutritional Science and Vitaminology in 1999. In an experiment involving obese mice, researchers found that adding banaba to the animals' diets helped prevent weight gain. What's more, banaba-fed mice were less likely to experience a buildup of triglycerides (a type of harmful blood fat).
An interesting "side-effect" of tighter control of blood sugar and insulin levels is a significant tendency of banaba to promote weight loss (an average of 1-2 kgs. per month) – without significant dietary alterations. For this reason, it is found in many weight-control formulas. It is likely that modulation of glucose and insulin levels reduces total caloric intake somewhat and encourages moderate weight-loss. The leaves, also contain the minerals manganese and zinc.
Obese patients also find that after taking a meal, the drinking of banaba tea helped them cope with incessant cravings for sweets or more food. Eventually, drinking 1 cup after every meal, patients reported a drop in their weight, and loss of inches! After using banaba tea as an after meal drink, instead of coffee or regular tea, patients report that their weight has stabilized after about 3 months. Banaba tea is a safe way to lose weight because the enzymes in the tea restore the normal ability of the body to regulate the absorption of carbohydrates
Cancer Treatment: The corosolic acid in banaba leaves also makes a contribution to cancer treatment. Researchers at Shanghai Hospital in Shanghai, China tested corosolic acid against human cervical cancer cells. The results, published in the November 1, 2009 issue of "Cancer Letters," show that corosolic acid stimulates the release of cancer-cell-killing enzymes, resulting in cancer cell death. Not only has corosolic acid been shown effective against cervical cancer cells, but the DIO reports that leukemia, breast, and liver cancer cells are also susceptible to its action.
Banaba for kidney and kidney stone: Drinking banaba tea can help melting stone in kidney very fast. It helps to combat inflammation in the kidney as well. It helps to remove plaque in kidney sooner. Banaba is also used to treat diabetes and kidney failure, obesity and high cholesterol and high blood pressure. The only thing is to be careful of the dosage. Too little is ineffective, and too much can actually send one into shock. Drinking of banaba tea is beneficial for flushing out toxins and harmful plaque in the kidney. Blocked kidney results in higher creatinine and high uric acid build up in the body. Drinking banaba tea can help kidney failure patients restore their kidneys back to health, and avoid dialysis. Drinking banaba tea should be increased only if patients are no longer taking medicines for their kidney or diabetes. Only those who are cleared by the doctor should attempt taking banaba tea.
Dosage: 3-5 gms. once a day after meal. With water.
