Vitacost Salacia Oblonga Extract -- 500 mg - 120 Capsules

Natural herbal extract promotes healthy glucose metabolism.*. What is Salacia oblonga extract? Salacia oblonga is a climbing plant that grows in India and Sri Lanka used extensively in Ayurvedic medicine.  . Salacia oblonga contains two key constituents—salacinol and kotalanol—which are believed to be responsible for the plant’s beneficial effects on alpha-glucosidase intestinal enzymes.* These enzymes turn carbohydrates into glucose (sugar). If the intestinal enzymes bind to the herbal extract rather than to carbohydrates less glucose enters the bloodstream.*.  . How does Salacia oblonga extract support health? When used as part of your diet Salacia oblonga may help maintain healthy blood sugar levels.* . Improves glycemic response after consumption of starch-containing meals.*. May promote cardiovascular health.*. Why choose Vitacost Salacia Oblonga Extract? Supplies 500 mg of Salacia oblonga per capsule. Contains 120 servings per bottle.

It works
 March 3, 2010
"If you expect to lose weight with this, it probably is not going to happen but it should at a very slow rate. But if you wish to maintain weight, this is the product for you.
I ate whatever I wanted and as much as I wanted with no weight gain. In fact my friends said that it looked like I had lost weight.
Side Effects: Gas and hunger."
