    While surfing on 20th November 2011, I clicked yahoo health page & then clicked at “ 5 ‘Forbidden’ Foods Diabetics Don’t Have to Avoid”. From that page I searched for natural herbal remedies for diabetes and came across a name “BANABA”. Afterwards I started the detailed search for “banaba” on many related sites, materia medicas, medical & plant dictionaries but could not find it’s details such as “common name” Hindi, Indian, Urdu, Persian or Punjabi name, it’s identification, other uses, etc; anywhere except that:
    “Banaba (Lagerstroemia speciosa) is a plant native to India, Southeast Asia and the Philippines and has several medicinal uses. In many cultures the banaba leaf is brewed into a tea and used as a treatment for diabetes and as a weigh loss aid. Banaba Leaf Extract provides a blood sugar lowering effect similar to that of insulin in that it induces glucose transport from the blood into body cells.”
    I’ll be highly obliged if detailed information/identification of the herb/plant “banaba” is provided to me!
    Moreover, If the above remedy is used in homoeopathy, what is it’s homoeopathic name & what is it’s proving history.
    If used as herbal medicine then what are the details?
    Thanks to anybody who provides informations regarding “banaba”!
