How does Banaba work?

Banaba seems to lower blood glucose in people with type 2 diabetes, according to very preliminary research. It might help the body use insulin more efficiently.

Are there safety concerns?

Banaba seems to be safe for most people when taken by mouth on a short-term basis. The long-term safety is unknown.

Do not take banaba if:
  • You are pregnant or breast-feeding.
