Soluble Extract of Banaba Leaf

White Tea

Banaba Leaf has been utlized in the traditional medical system in India known as Ayurvedic for more than 2000 years. In 1940, the first clinical research observing the hypoglycemic and anti-hyperlipidemic properties of the naturally occurring corosolic acid in Banaba Leaf, was published. To learn more about Banaba Leaf and corosolic acid, please read the following clinical study sourced from the NIH website:

High Bioavailability Trace Mineral - Chromium Picolinate

Chromium

High bioavailability trace minerals are more effective because they are more easily absorbed in the body. In addition to being an essential mineral for many aspects of good health, Chromium Picolinate has a relationship to glucose metabolism. To learn more about Chromium, please read the following Fact Sheet prepared by the Office of Dietary Supplements of the NIH plus an additional clinical study sourced from the NIH website:

High Bioavailability Trace Mineral - Manganese Citrate

Chromium

High bioavailability trace minerals are more effective because they are more easily absorbed in the body. Manganese is an essential mineral in a number physiological processes, including glucose metabolism. To learn more about Manganese, please read the following clinical study sourced from the NIH website:
