Send sugar spikes PACKING with this OBSCURE Indian vine

Once you were diagnosed with diabetes, you had to take on a brand-new role. 

Yes, you suddenly found yourself slapped with the label of “diabetic”… 

But you ALSO had to become a mathematician!  

Because for many, managing diabetes is a complicated whirlwind of monitoring blood sugar numbers and calculating glycemic indexes.   

Forget counting calories – you’re CONSTANTLY counting SUGARS and their impact! 

As careful as you are, DEVASTATING sugar spikes can strike without warning 

And attempts to control your blood sugar with medication can make your glucose levels dip TOO low. 

Fortunately, there’s a way to balance out your blood sugar… and protect yourself from excess sugar damage  

All you need is to harvest the wood from a special kind of creeping vine! 

The ‘wood cure’ for sugar woes 

Now, it’s important to note that EVERYBODY’S blood sugar spikes a little after eating a meal. 

That’s normal. 

But in “normal” people – people without diabetes – insulin swoops in to help transport sugar into cells that use it for energy. 

Diabetics either don’t produce enough insulin… or become resistant to the effects of it.  

And then they can’t tolerate ANY glucose spikes. 

In India and Sri Lanka, practitioners of Ayurveda – the ancient, traditional medicine of the region – NEVER prescribe drugs for hyperglycemia 

Instead, they rely on the bark of a woody vine called salacia (Salacia oblonga) 

They give diabetics mugs made from salacia wood to drink out of… 

And they prepare herbal formulations using salacia extracts for supplementation 

It’s time for salacia to EMERGE from its OBSCURITY… 

Because scientific studies have now PROVEN how salacia helps beat back diabetes 


  • LOWERS sugar spikes after eating (a.k.a. postprandial blood glucose) 
  • REDUCES overflows of insulin after eating, which can lead to insulin resistance  
  • IMPROVES glucose tolerance, and  
  • DECREASES inflammatory markers 

And as it turns out, salacia may work as an alpha-glucosidase inhibitor — the same mechanism as an entire CLASS of prescription diabetes drugs!  

Both the drugs and salacia appear to slow sugar absorption by inhibiting the enzyme alpha-glucosidase  

This could be due to the activity of the anti-diabetic compound known as salacinolwhich has shown to reduce hyperglycemia in studies where it’s been used on its own.  

But there’s another key constituent to salacia – and that’s called mangiferin, an antioxidant also found in mango and mangosteen.  

Researchers believe that this ingredient helps keep diabetic complications at bay, including diabetic cardiomyopathy… heart rhythm disorders… abnormal heart enlargement and kidney dysfunction 

You can drink salacia tea out of a salacia mug – but both of those might be nearly IMPOSSIBLE to find here in the States. 

Thankfully, salacia is available as a supplement in capsule form, also known in the Hindi language as “saptarangi. 

There’s also a standardized, highpotency water extract of the root, sold under the brand name Salsulin
