For more than 3 years I had been having AM BS in the low 100s so my docs began checking A1C levels which were ranging from 6.0 to 6.4 along with wt. of +/- 130s. I was instructed but resisted beginning Metformin dosing and after strictly following lifestyle changes there were no changes. I began using Banaba 2X daily and limiting my carb intake to no more than 60 grams PER DAY. In less than 3 months, my A1C dropped to 5.4 and my wt. dropped to 124. Now 6 months later I am still maintaining a lower A1C and wt.

Since beginning to monitor my glucose on a 2X daily basis, I have kept a journal of my levels, with notes on foods and supplements, the latter of which was primarily a combination of cinnamon, fenugreek and gymnema. I recently started taking a single banaba leaf liquid gel before dinner. It has normalized my blood sugar levels beyond my expectations bothe at night and the following morning, even when followed by a pasta dinner. I'm not being scientific here, but this product seems very effective against Type 2 diabetes and I recommend it.

My lab result indicated that my blood sugar was in the red zone. This banaba was introduced to me by my relatives. Since I started drinking, my sugar was back to normal, as well as my blood pressure went donw to normal.

Lowered sugar right away and lost weight over a few weeks. But I exercise quite a bit. Three to five miles walking and 30 minutes weights. That doesn't lower my blood sugar, it keeps it stable, but the Banaba does.

I started using banaba in a combo pill with berberine and so far it has been working well with controlling my blood sugar levels. especially with my morning levels prior to breakfast.

It lowered my blood sugar right away. I use it along with diet and exercise seems to control my sugar. My diet is mostly meat and veggies. For something sweet I have been able to find sugar free ice cream.
