While traveling outside the US recently, a kindly woman encouraged me to investigate a natural product she said was a “miracle worker” for people managing diabetes as a chronic condition. I forgot all about it for a while, but recently I was reading a supplement label and noticed that name again — Banaba extract. Also known by a host of other names, such as Corosolic acid, Queen’s Crape Myrtle, Pride-of-India, and perhaps more formally as Lagerstroemia speciosa, this extract is being touted by many diabetes sufferers as a good naturopathic option. According to other online sources, Banaba extract may also be helpful in weight loss.
