The roots and stems of Salacia oblonga, a woody plant found in the rainforests of Sri Lanka and India, has been traditionally used extensively in Ayurvedic herbalism, and more recently it has been used as a dietary supplement, gaining significant popularity in Japan. Salacia helps support and maintain healthy blood sugar, insulin, and blood lipid levels in healthy normal individuals.


Salacia contains inhibitors of sugar digestion and absorption. When Salacia is present in the digestive tract, the intestinal digestive enzymes bond to chemical components of Salacia instead of the sugar or carbohydrates. The result is less glucose production. Salacia oblonga inhibits the breakdown of oligosaccharides (disaccharides and trisaccharides) such as sucrose, maltose, etc. into monosaccharides and inhibits the absorption of monosaccharides such as glucose, mannose, etc. in the body.


Salacia contains two potent alpha-glucosidase inhibitors that may help regulate carbohydrate-metabolic functions. In normal healthy individuals, alpha-glucosidase inhibitors decrease the absorption of carbohydrates from the intestine, resulting in a slower and lower rise in blood glucose throughout the day, especially right after meals.


Salacia also contains mangiferin, a polyphenol that supports the body's sensitivity to insulin in normal healthy individuals. The polyphenols in Salacia were shown to be potent free radical scavengers and Salacia has been shown to have potent antioxidant properties. Salacia should only be used by healthy individuals to support normal healthy metabolic functions.*
