Loquat is an evergreen tree with delicate, edible, pear-shaped fruits native to southeastern China, but is widely cultivated. The long, elliptical-shaped leaves have a history of use in traditional Chinese medicine. The corosolic acid extracted from loquat leaves potentiates glucose transport and uptake, which lowers blood glucose and decreases the need for insulin secretion. Insulin resistance affects millions of adult Americans. Long-term elevation of blood sugar creates a high risk for developing diabetes, and is an independent risk factor for cardiovascular disease. This plant material provides product developers with an excellent opportunity to incorporate it into an effective blood glucose metabolism formula. Corosolic acid is a natural medicine that plays a favorable role in maintaining healthy blood glucose levels, thereby decreasing the risk of long-term complications associated with insulin resistance.
