Gymnema Leaf

Gymnema Leaf
Supports healthy insulin and blood sugar levels. Temporarily blocks sweet tastes in the mouth. Helps reduce sugar cravings. Indian Ayurvedic herb, used for thousands of years, known as the “destroyer of sugar” in India. Native to India.
Used primarily in combination with other herbs, it has been shown to be effective in toning the blood & strengthening the body in general. The Hindu name for this herb is 'Gurmar', meaning 'sugar destroyer'. Gymnema is effective at blocking the taste of sugar from the system. Taken before sugar, the Gymnema molecule blocks the passages through which sugar is normally absorbed, so that fewer sugar calories are assimilated. Both sugar & Gymnema are digested in the small intestine, but the larger molecule of Gymnema cannot be fully absorbed. The remaining sugar is eliminated as waste.

The active ingredient in Gymnema Sylvestre is gymnemic, an organic acid. Gymnemic acid is composed of molecules with a siminlar atomic arrangement to gluclose molecules. These molecules fill the receptor locations on the taste buds temporaily, from one to two hours, preventing the taste buds from being able to taste any sugar molecule in the food. This action is repeated in the intestines when the gymnemic acid fills the receptors located on the absorptive external layers of the intestines, temporarily blocking the absorption of the sugar molecules.

A taste test can show how Gymnema works. First, taste something sweet, then swish a sip of Gymnema Sylvestre tea or extract around in your mouth. Finally, taste something sweet again. You will not be able to taste the sugar, because Gymnema has blocked the taste of the sugar in your mouth in the same way it blocks sugar in digestion. Gymnema won't affect food from tasting good, but will suppress the desire for sweets. This sugar blocking action of Gymnema works well in cases of diabetes.
