In order to fully know what Natural Quality Corp has in store for us, I did a little research about the company, their products and services and the people who are using their products. Natural Quality Corp have been in the Philippine market since 2002 and started exporting products in the United States and Japan.

One of their many health products is Delite Herbal Tea. I have been starting to drink herbal teas just last month and have tried many. And today, I am starting to try Delite Herbal Tea.

Delite Ampalaya Plus Herbal Tea is a delicious and easy way to drink traditional Philippine tea while getting the health benefits of Ampalaya (Bitter Melon), Banaba(Lagerstroemia speciosa) and Luyang Dilaw (Turmeric). It is infused with Green Tea and natural Calamansi (Philippine-Tropical lime) that results in a healthy and delightful drink.

Maybe you'll be asking 'What's in it for me?' 

Listed below are some of the many benefits we can have from Delite Ampala Plus Herbal Tea's ingredients.

1. Ampalaya (Bitter Gourd)

One way this fruit can help is by regulating the blood sugar level. We all know when the level is too high it means bad things to come. Controlling blood sugar level is the only way to be diabetic free with minimal damage to the entire system. When insulin receptors become ineffective or does not function as it should, it is called a down regulated insulin receptor.

Using bitter melon in the diet can help reverse the insulin resistance effect. Bitter melon helps diabetics to treat insulin resistant without medication. This is an important role in prevention and treatment of type II diabetes which is also known as insulin-independent diabetes. This can also prevent further diabetic complications that are cause by chronically high sugar concentrations. -Source

2. Banaba (Lagerstroemia speciosa)

Banaba is a leaf extract from a crepe myrtle species found in the Philippines and Southeast Asia. This product may help promote glucose uptake and produce insulin-like effects. It has been studied in rodents, but a small study in patients with type 2 diabetes found that a soft-gel formulation of the extract, called Glucosol (now called GlucoTrim), lowered glucose.

There are no serious side effects associated with the use of banaba, but hypoglycemia may occur, and the patient’s dose of diabetes medications may have to be lowered. There is limited information regarding the use of this product, so it is not recommended at this time. - Source

3. Luyang Dilaw (Turmeric)

The health benefits of Turmeric have been recognized by Chinese and Ayurvedic medicine for hundreds of years. It has been used to treat everyday problems such as indigestion and flatulence, as well as more serious problems such as arthritis, Alzheimer's disease, cancer, diabetes, HIV, high cholesterol, heartburn, jaundice, liver disorders, and menstrual disorders. Turmeric can also be applied topically in poultices to reduce inflammation and to relieve wounds, cuts, and bruises.

Recent studies have shown that the antioxidant agents in Turmeric help reduce insulin resistance, which may prevent the onset of Type-2 Diabetes. Therefore, a simple preventive remedy is to take one teaspoon of turmeric powder twice a day with meals. Curcumin extracts or capsules can also be used as an alternative to the powder. -Source
