Vitacost Salacia Oblonga Extract
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.*
