Known as the “Sugar Destroyer”, Gymnema Sylvestre has been used in Ayurveda for centuries. One of its primary active ingredients is gymnemic acid – a compound that has been shown to support pancreatic health, promote glucose metabolism and healthy blood sugar levels. Along with providing natural plant-based blood sugar support, this ancient herb exhibits potent antioxidant properties.
Gymnema Sylvestre Supplement
Gymnema is an herb indigenous to South Asia and has been used for centuries in Ayurveda. One of its primary elements is a phytochemical called ‘gurmarin’ which modifies the tongue’s perception of sweet and bitter tastes. Studies have shown that gymnema sylvestre can block the sugar receptors on tastes buds, resulting is less stimulation and a decreased craving for sweets.
Another primary active ingredient is gymnemic acid, which is a compound that is structurally similar to glucose. However it reacts very differently by blocking the absorption of sugar in the intestines, which may help to lower blood sugar levels after meals.
Many studies have been conducted on this herb. They support the findings that gymnemic acid increases insulin production, improves glucose utilization, and even contributes to rejuvenation of the pancreas and the regeneration of insulin-producing cells within the pancreas.
