Honestly, I'd like to know if all these pre-made blends of GDA's/NP's are really significantly better than a respectable dose of Na-R-ala. Considering the cost/benefit. Of course someone who is selling the product will always say the blend is better, but honestly it carries a little bias in my opinion. No offense, but it's just reality. Until we can see scientific evidence that all these products act mainly as a nutrient partition-er, and not just as an insulin mimicker, it'll be trial and error to find what really works.
Sounds like the NP's shuttle glycogen to muscles but decrease insulin sensitivity and the GDA's shuttle glycogen out of the bloodstream to either muscle or fat but increases insulin sensitivity. So neither are really helping us unless the GDA's can specifiy muscle uptake.
MANY of these questions/issues have been belabored to death on this GREAT THREAD
Best GDA for High Glycemic Carbohydrates
That said, I still remained unconvinced after all the excellent insight and info applied to the thread that ANY supp has the ability PREFERENTIALLY shuttle nutrients into the muscle cells verses fat cells (in an UN-exercised state).

Can I please ask why the 1% banaba though? I've always reached for products with 20%, but perhaps higher isn't always better regarding specific constituents of the herb, I'm not sure, but would love some insight because pairing a 80% 4-OH extract with a 1% seemed odd to me, thanks again. (EDIT: My assumptions were right, I see someone already answered this question, thanks)
PS: (Question for everyone) Out of the ridiculous amount of 'designer carb' choices out there today from almost everyone, Gaspari/VPX/Professional Supplements/Labrada etc etc etc... I've long ruled out Vitargo because those morons have a patent monopoly and charge laughable prices, but what would be the best 2 choices for DURING WORKOUT, AND POST WORKOUT for the most intense energy/pump support and insulin spike, and why?
Damn Outstanding, when did you pop your head back in here?
A simple answer to your question is that banaba has a lot of interesting constituents in it. When you standardize for corosolic acid, you eliminate the concentration of the other constituents in your supplement. What are some known ingredients in banaba extract? See below:
