GlucoFit is an extract of the herb Lagerstroemia speciosa L., processed by water extraction and standardized to 18% corosolic acid. Corosolic acid, the active triterpenoid, may be involved with glucose and carbohydrate metabolism.*
Lagerstroemia speciosa L. (banaba) has been used for many years to treat diabetes. The first scientific study was reported in 1940. There have been many recent human studies. They have indicated dramatic reduction in blood glucose levels with one study observing a 30% decrease after only 2 weeks. There were no adverse effects reported in any of the animal or human clinical trials.1,2
