    Cool Banaba Coming to the Planet!


    After much fanfare and requests, NutraPlanet is finally waiting on a shipment of Banaba.

    Because the dose for Corsoslic Acid is so small (3mg or so) we opted to go with the standard 1% extract so none of you knuckleheads would be in a banaba-induced hypo-glycemic coma.

    ETA is about 1 week from now.

    For those unaware, Banaba is a widely researched, proven herb shown to reduce blood sugar and body fat in humans with little to no side effects!

    the 20% would be impossible to dose accurately as a bulk powder.

    What I do to dose it is measure out 150mg * 50 = 7.5g. Then I add in ~15g of Green Tea Extract. I seal this in a ziploc container, shake well, then cap it. You can sub anything in for the green tea; even Gymema, Bitter Melon, ALA, etc if you want more kick, but that right there is enough to make you hypo with less than 80g carbs, I usually shoot for around 100; 75g complex from carbs, and 25g simple from berries and milk.

    Yeah that's it !

    So, would need to take quite a bit of the bulk powder to equate to that dose.

    But isn't pslin 10%. To say i'm not disappointed would be a lie, Steve I blame you I can't see this being a big seller at 1%. Also Nutraman not sure where you got 3mg but that dose won't do anything. You would need a lot of 1% to get the job done.

    Hear hear! The 1% is more catered to those who aren't taking in a massive 80g+ carb meal. To get 30mg of CA would require 3g of 1%; depending on the density that could be like 4 caps it it's 750mg per 1/4 tsp. I guess that does give some flexibility for smaller carb meals too.

    Heh ninja-edit, caught in the process

    Thing is if I want to do a smaller carbs meal I'll take AP, CA's point is the shuttle massive amounts of carbs (up to 150g/meal). Bro that's a lot of capping just for a month of CA at two doses a day. So if i'm taking 6-9g's a day what kind of pricing are we talking here?

    It is what has been used in all of the human studies. I am not sure a higher percentage product would be neccessary, except for users who want a pump feeling.

    The antidiabetic activity of an extract from the leaves of Lagerstroemia speciosa standardized to 1% corosolic acid (Glucosol) has been demonstrated in a randomized clinical trial involving Type II diabetics (non-insulin-dependent diabetes mellitus, NIDDM). Subjects received a daily oral dose of Glucosol and blood glucose levels were measured. Glucosol at daily dosages of 32 and 48mg for 2 weeks showed a significant reduction in the blood glucose levels. Glucosol in a soft gel capsule formulation showed a 30% decrease in blood glucose levels compared to a 20% drop seen with dry-powder filled hard gelatin capsule formulation (P<0.001), suggesting that the soft gel formulation has a better bioavailability than a dry-powder formulation.

    I know this is a different subject, but dare I ask what the fate of the probable I3C/DIM product is?

    Just wondering... how thoroughly, would you estimate, the shaking in a Ziploc container mixes the powders?

    It got bumped down the ladder, to be honest, with the GMP switchover being a higher priority.

    I'd say well enough. Snap that lid on and shake like crazy. Haven't had in issue with any of my caps, they all feel to be about the same potency. If you're really worried, pick a white powder, and you can see clearly when it is mixed thoroughly.

    since it was just ordered and it is comming all the way from china, it will probably be 2-3 weeks. custom might show up to confirm this.
    it will just be the bulk powder at a nutra price everyone will enjoy!

    It won't be capped, out of respect to USP Labs. Also I don't think we have to worry about customs to the same degree as hormonal bulks, so once we get this paid for, I think it would be <2 weeks. I should probably say 3 and surprise you when it comes quicker though , I suppose

    This is correct.


    Customs enforcement has been tighter than usual of late...they still have the Berberine on hold without anyone willing to tell us what is going on.
