In Ayurveda Gymnema or “Gur Mar” – is known better as “sugar destroyer”
Gymnema sylvestre is a woody climbing shrub that’s native to the tropical forests of India, Africa and Australia. Its leaves have been used for thousands of year in the Indian medicinal practice of Ayurveda.
It predominant use in traditional Ayurveda is to support the body in eliminating high sugar. Its highly bitter taste helps in control of intake of high sugary products*.
Similar to its effects on taste buds Gymnema Extract can also block sugar receptors in your intestines** thereby lowering post meal sugar levels. For people with high blood sugar or a high HbA1c, Gymnema sylvestre may support and help in reducing fasting, post-meal and long-term blood sugar levels. However, if you’re taking blood-sugar-lowering medications, consult with your doctor first.
Contraindications: Gymnema sylvestre is considered safe for most people, but it should not be taken by children or women who are pregnant, breastfeeding or planning to get pregnant. In some people there may be side effects on regular intake such as hypoglycaemia.
