In a study conducted by Kowsalya et at., it was determined that 2.5 to 5.0 grams of Salacia Oblonga daily is effective in lowering blood glucose, serum cholesterol, triglycerides and increasing HDL cholesterol levels of non-insulin dependent diabetes patients.
It is know that glucose absorbed in body is converted into glycogens and neutral lipids by insulin and then accumulates as body fat and organ fat, thus causing obesity.
Salacia Oblonga inhibits breakdown of oligosaccharides (disaccharides and trisaccharides) such as sucrose, maltose, etc. into monosaccharides and inhibits absorption of monosaccharides such as glucose, mannose, etc. in body, preventing blood sugar levels from rising.
The presence of S.oblonga extract tended to lower postprandial glycemia and significantly reduced postprandial insulin response. The increase in breath hydrogen excretion suggests a mechanism similar to prescription alpha-glucosidase inhibitors.

Joint sufferers have recently been using Glucosamine Hydrochloride and Cat’s Claw (the herb) to relieve suffering of damaged cartilage, material that protects our joints as a shock absorber. This combination promotes cartilage formation and renewal in as little as one week.
And, while beauty industry is all aflutter with liposome technology for anti-aging skin care products, a sweet surprise for arthritis and muscle pain sufferers is fact that these liposomes work in same fast-absorbing, deeply penetrating manner when incorporated in joint and muscle pain creams. Liposome delivery systems are biodegradable, non-toxic and prevent oxidation, due to fact that they enable water-soluble and water-insoluble materials to be used together in a formulation without use of surfactants or other emulsifiers.
More and more consumers are becoming aware that in purchasing pharmaceutical products, one is paying for “altered molecules”, and their safety is subsequently being challenged. Many of us are no longer prepared to accept complications that come with technology that has not proven itself. Remember old adage, “buyer beware”. New is not always better. Of course, old is not always better either. But, for my money I’ll opt for safe products--those that have been around for centuries, and new ones that have a proven track record.
