An herbal remedy extracted from the leaves of the Lagerstroemia speciosa tree, banana may help fight diabetes. In animal-based research, scientists have shown that banaba extract may help keep blood sugar in check (as well as reduce cholesterol levels). Banaba is rich in both corosolic acid (a substance found to offer blood-sugar-lowering and anti-inflammatory benefits) and ellagitannins (a class of compounds with antioxidant effects).
