Crape Myrtle Tannins

Crape myrtle tannins originally derived from a tropical plant from Southeast Asia.  It can now be found all over the world, including in warmer areas of the United States, like Florida and Texas.  It’s a beautiful plant with colorful flowers and is easy to grow.  The leaves have been used for years in Asia for tea, and the name “Banaba” (a crape myrtle species) comes from the Filipino-native Tagalog language.  Crape myrtle tannins has several medicinal properties that are well known in that part of the world, and it’s popular among bodybuilders and fitness athletes thanks to its positive effects on blood sugar.

Benefits and Corosolic acid

Corosolic acid is the main active compound in crape myrtle tannins.  Let's go over what it does and the reasons why you should include Corosolic acid in your supplement arsenal.

A: Corosolic acid enhances the uptake of blood glucose.  Blood glucose is the same name for what people know as “blood sugar.”  Proper blood sugar levels should be under 100mg/dl after an overnight fast.  Anything more than this, and a person is facing future as a type 2 diabetic. So, one must watch the 100mg/dl figure closely.  When you supplement crape myrtle tannins, you’re naturally lowering blood sugar by stimulating glucose into the proper cells.

Insulin is a very anabolic hormone, and you’ll grow when you use it.  In the bodybuilding world, taking crape myrtle tannins will give you the anabolic benefits and nutrient partitioning without the risks associated with taking insulin.  Many bodybuilders have died from insulin use in a desperate attempt to help them grow more muscle and take advantage of the foods they are eating.  Supplementing crape myrtle tannins will eliminate this health risk and is far safer and legal.  Remember, insulin must be injected only, but crape myrtle tannins work well when taken as an oral.

Also, crape myrtle tannins will lower your insulin levels, even while giving you the positive benefits, which means you’re more likely to store more muscle tissue instead of storing just plain fat.  Many bodybuilders make the mistake of abusing insulin or simply eating too much food; hence, they gain globs of fat.

B: Piggybacking on what was said in the last section, crape myrtle tannins does a great job of reducing the hydrolysis of starches and sugars in the body.  The reason why is that it’s a great alpha-glucosidase inhibitor.  In our small intestine, there are enzymes that hydrolyze chemicals into glucose, which causes a rise in our blood sugar.  When you reduce this effect, you can eat more food and better utilize the nutrients without spiking your blood sugar.  Once again, this effect means more muscle mass.  Some bodybuilders not only take crape myrtle tannins before meals, but they also are known to take it before a workout to get that extra partitioning, where the muscle is forced to absorb nutrition while they work out.

Steroid users

Many bodybuilders take performance-enhancing drugs, including steroids.  The nice thing here is that crape myrtle tannins is a great supplement to take on cycle.  Since most steroids increase appetite and we use steroids to grow more muscle mass and get stronger, we can be more liberal with meals and not fear consuming more fats, carbohydrates, and, of course, protein. Bottom line: crape myrtle tannins is a great option, because it will help you make the most out of your meals.  View it on cycle as just another weapon that’s extracting nutrition from your foods and putting it into your muscles, without adding body fat or screwing with your blood sugar.


There’s no need to use too much crape myrtle tannins to help bodybuilders with their goals. In fact, less is better, especially when you stack it with other supplements like Bergenin, Green Tea Extract, Gymnema Sylvestre, and 4-hydroxyisoleucine.  A dosage of 200mgs before meals along with those supplements will give the best synergistic effects.

A product called N2slin has 200mgs of crape myrtle tannins, along with a half dozen additional ingredients, including those we just mentioned.  Bodybuilders and fitness enthusiasts should take 2 capsules of N2slin before their largest meals of the day, or 1 capsule spread throughout the day.  Those who intermittent fast can get the best benefits by working out, taking N2slin, then eating a hearty meal, in that order.  You can purchase N2slin at N2bm.com.
