Tea for Weight Loss: Banaba Tea 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 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.
Controls Diabetes : According to the American Diabetes Association, 25.8 million children and adults in the US have diabetes. That's 8.3% of the population. This high growth has led to a growing number of pharmaceutical drugs attempting to treat the problem – and with those drugs, a host of dangerous side effects, such as increased risk of heart failure. It's no wonder people are looking for safer, and possibly more effective, natural alternatives. Fortunately, there just might be a powerful natural alternative with banaba leaf extract.
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. It turns out these cultures were onto something -- banaba leaf and blood sugar control go hand in hand.
Cancer Treatment: The corosolic acid in banaba leaves also makes a contribution to cancer treatment. Researchers at Changhai 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.
