Gymnema-75

Gymnema sylvestre is a woody branched vine growing in the wild forests of Central and South India. The plant has been used in traditional Ayurvedic medicine for centuries for many different conditions but is mainly known for enhancing blood sugar metabolism. It does this by reducing glucose absorption from the intestines and increasing peripheral insulin sensitivity, and some evidence even suggests that it may support the body’s ability to produce its own insulin by helping to repair the cells in the pancreas that make it.

The hypoglycemic effect of this herb was scientifically tested for the first time in 1930. Further studies revealed that gymnema significantly lowered blood glucose levels in both insulin-dependent and non-insulin-dependent rats with poor blood sugar control. Balancing blood sugar will help not only to manage diabetes but also to reduce weight gain.

When used as a mouthwash, the gymnemic acids in Gymnema sylvestre can block the sugar receptors on the tongue which decreases the ability to taste the sweetness of food. This can reduce the desire to have sweet treats and cravings. Finally, Gymnema has been found to lower blood lipids in diabetic subjects and it also inhibits the growth of Candida albicans, an opportunistic fungus that is known to cause a wide array of health issues.
