Orabet is a dietary supplement containing Gymnema, Galega and Banaba produced by NarMed, an Azerbaijani pharmaceutical company. Gymnema sylvestre is regarded as one of the plants with potent antidiabetic properties. The active compound of the plant is a group of acids termed as gymnemic acids.
Galega officinalis the second ingredient is a wild plant of Europe and Asia that produces a large, leafy bush of mid-green leaves. Glucophage (metformin), one of the popular hypoglycemic drugs, is derived from the medicinal plant known as Galega.
Banaba the last ingredient in orabet is a plant native to the Philippines and Southeast Asia. People use the leaves to make medicine. Some people take Orabet by mouth for prediabetes, diabetes, or weight loss.

Insulin is a hormone that regulates blood sugar. Hyperglycaemia, or raised blood sugar, is a common effect of uncontrolled diabetes and over time leads to serious damage to many of the body’s systems, especially the nerves and blood vessels.
