Corosolic Acid contains a triterpenoid compound known as corosolic acid ?which has actions in stimulating glucose transport into cells. As such, banaba plays a role in regulating levels of blood sugar and insulin in the blood. For some people, fluctuations in blood sugar and insulin are related to appetite, hunger and various food cravings,particularly craving for carbohydrates such as bread and sweets. By keeping blood sugar and insulin levels in check, banaba may be an effective supplement for promoting weight loss in certain individuals.

2.Promoting weight loss is an important function of banaba leaf extract.

3.Corosolic acid of banaba leaf extract can promoting healthy insulin levels

4.Corosolic Acid can control appetite and food craving,especially carbohydrate cravings.

Application Area:

1.Diabetes: Its ability to lower blood sugar is attributed to its corosolic acid, a triterpenoid glycoside, belived to facilitate glucose-transport into cells.


 2.Others: Used in the treatment of blood pressure, renal and immune system benefits. No toxicity has been

identified. Traditional uses include brewing tea from the leaves as a treatment for diabetes and hyperglycemia

 (elevated blood sugar). The hypoglycemic (blood sugar lowering) effect of banaba leaf extract is similar to that of insulin which induces glucose transport from the blood into body cells.
