What is Gymnema Sylvestre?

Originating from South Asia, gymnema sylvestre is a plant in the milkweed family found growing in India, Sri Lanka, Australia and tropical Africa. Its leaves are the source of its health-promoting attributes and have been a part of Ayurvedic wellness traditions for over 2,000 years. Rich in natural compounds known as gymnemic acids, the herb is renowned for its ability to repress sweet tastes and balance blood sugar.**

Gymnema sylvestre appears to be a promising herbal supplement for the nearly 350 million people around the world who have health problems related to unstable blood sugar. Gymnema sylvestre is most commonly used by those seeking to promote healthy blood sugar levels, a use that is supported by numerous clinical studies. The herb is thought to achieve its blood sugar-balancing benefits by influencing insulin secretion, supporting the pancreas and encouraging glucose metabolism.**

Gymnema sylvestre extract has shown promising weight management attributes as well, in part due to its ability to block sugar absorption in the intestines while maintaining blood sugar stability. Scientists have also suggested gymnema sylvestre may help with weight management by binding to the taste buds and blocking sweet taste sensations. In fact, gymnema sylvestre’s traditional name, “gurmar,” translates to “sugar destroyer” – further reinforcing its reputation for neutralizing sweet tastes and promoting sugar metabolism. These biological activities may be especially helpful to dieters because they might help diminish the sugar cravings that can derail weight loss regimens.**

Research has also found that the herb helps to maintain normal cholesterol and triglyceride levels by facilitating lipid metabolism. These properties contribute to overall cardiovascular health and metabolic wellness.**
