Banaba is a species of Crepe Myrtle that is native to several regions in Southeast Asia but can now be found as a decorative plant throughout the world. Banaba leaf extract has a longstanding history within the traditional medicine setting to help support healthy blood sugar levels. The main active constituents found in banaba leaf extract include the ellagitannins, lagerstroemin, flosin B, and reginin A, as well as corsolic acid, which is the most well-characterized. The Nutonen™ product contains Banaba leaf extract in the form of the proprietary ingredient, GlucoHelp®, which is standardized to 18% corosolic acid.

The main ingredient found within the Nutonen™ product, GlucoHelp®, contains 18% corosolic acid and has been clinically studied to determine its effectiveness for the maintenance of healthy blood glucose.

The totality of evidence in both preclinical and clinical studies1 2 3 demonstrates the potential for banaba leaf extract and dietary supplements containing corosolic acid to be used to support the maintenance of healthy blood glucose levels in hyperglycemic adults. Although multiple clinical studies use higher quantities of corosolic acid than what is contained within the Nutonen™ product, there is clear evidence that multiple constituents of banaba leaf extract help maintain healthy blood glucose levels.
