The large leaves of the Banaba plant are the best natural antidiabetic
The leaves and fruits of the tropical banaba tree have long been used in the traditional medicine of India, China, Japan, the Philippines and the countries of Southeast Asia. In Europe, their effect began to be investigated in the 40s of the 20th century. Banaba (Lagerstroemia speciosa), however, has only recently received the deserved attention of scientific workers.
The substances contained in large banaba leaves are the best natural insulin in the world (these are the results of research conducted in recent years and which Asian healers have known for a long time).
The banaba plant is rich in vitamins and minerals (especially zinc and magnesium). The leaves and fruits contain precious corosolic acid, which, with the help of other compounds, lowers the blood sugar level to a normal value. The mechanism of action is based on transporting glucose into cells outside the bloodstream (while simultaneously stimulating insulin production and preventing insulin resistance). Preparations with banaba show good results in the treatment of both types of diabetes 1 and 2. However, preparations of this plant are used with greater success in the case of type 2 diabetes (because, among other things, they very effectively reduce excess weight and solve other problems characteristic of this type of disease).
In one of the numerous studies examining the effects of banaba, 15 participants with diabetes 2 took 3 times a day smaller doses of the extract of the leaves of this plant for 22 weeks. The results showed that their glucose level dropped by 15% to 30% and they lost an average of 3 kilograms of body weight per month. Also, the majority of respondents reported a decrease in the desire for food (especially for food containing large amounts of carbohydrates such as bread and sweets). The scientists explained this by the fact that the blood sugar level was balanced during the treatment (there were no large changes in blood sugar values – the main cause of cravings for this type of food). But, much more important, it has been irrefutably established that the ingredients of banaba (acting on liver metabolism) prevent the storage of carbohydrates.
It is recommended to combine the leaves of the plant with green tea to get even better results.
All analyzes show that banaba has no toxic effects and is absolutely safe. However, this plant is not recommended for pregnant women, nursing mothers, or children. People with diabetes are advised to be careful when using the plant with glucose-lowering drugs (both official and alternative) – otherwise, hypoglycemia can easily occur. That is why continuous monitoring of blood sugar levels is necessary.
Newer tests show that banaba significantly lowers the level of cholesterol and triglycerides in the blood (although the mechanisms by which this plant affects lipids have not yet been discovered). Banaba reduces high blood pressure, eliminating the risk of stroke and heart attack.
Banaba leaves are considered one of the best means of detoxifying the body in the traditional medicine of Asian peoples. This has been confirmed by modern science. Research shows that preparations with banaba have strong diuretic properties and exceptionally clean the kidneys and liver. It turned out that they also have a strong anti-inflammatory effect.
Banaba supplements are available in the market and online market. Tincture (take 2 to 3 drops per day), capsules, tea and tablets (and seeds) can be obtained in well-equipped pharmacies and stores and online. The plant originates in tropical regions and does not survive cold continental winters. However, the plant can be grown under controlled conditions.
Banaba tea (infusion) – pour a cup of dried and dried leaves with a cup of boiling water. Leave for half an hour. Strain and drink the tea. Drink tea 3 times a day, same as tablets and capsules. Take 2 to 3 drops of the tincture in half a glass of water. Sometimes the fruits of the plant (which are similar to hazelnuts but do not have a hard shell) are mixed with the leaves, which are very healthy but with less useful ingredients (compared to the leaves of the plant).
