The Science of Gymnema

Millions of Americans have difficulty maintaining stable blood sugar levels that are already within the normal range.  The herb Gymnema (Gymnema sylvestre) is traditionally known as “gurmar”, meaning the sugar destroyer. For the past 1500 years, Ayurvedic physicians have used a combination of diet and Gymnema leaf to help support normal blood sugar levels.  Research has shown that Gymnema has a beneficial effect on Beta cells in the pancreas  and delays glucose absorption in the intestine.  This activity helps protect the pancreas from releasing too much insulin. Long-term intake of Gymnema leaf extract lowered the body weight and triglyceride levels of rats fed a high-carbohydrate, low-fat diet, whether they were lean or over-weight, and without altering their serum levels of insulin.  The inhibition of body weight gain and cholesterol levels by Gymnema leaf extract has been attributed to the constituent, gymnemagenin.
