Gymnema Sylvestre extract Gymnemic Acid
Gymnema is a woody climbing plant that grows in the tropical forests of central and southern India. The leaves lamina is ovate, elliptic or ovate-lanceolate, with both surfaces pubescent. The flowers are small bell-shaped yellow color. Gymnema Sylvestre extract has been clinically proven to reduce excessively high blood sugar levels, apparently by boosting the amount of insulin available to process sugar. It also exhibits cholesterol-lowering activity, although not to a degree that makes it useful. Although this Indian herb is now used primarily for Type 2 (adult-onset) diabetes, in the past it was also recommended for stomach problems, constipation, water retention, and liver disease. Its effectiveness for such problems is, however, doubtful.
The leaves of gurmar are used medicinally, for its unique property to directly mask the tongue's ability to taste sweet foods; at the same time suppresses glucose absorption from the intestine. This is the reason it is known in Hindi as gurmar, or "destroyer of sugar".
Gymnema sylvestre leaves contain gymnemic acids, which are known to suppress transport of glucose from the intestine into the blood stream and a small protein, gurmar, that can interact with receptors on the tongue to decrease the sensation of sweetness in many foods. This dual action has been shown to reduce blood sugar and cholesterol levels in diabetic animals and humans and may provide some benefits in terms of regulating appetite control and food cravings.

Action of Gymnema Sylvestre Extract
1) The hypoglycemic (blood sugar lowering) effect of gymnema has been known for centuries.
2 )The effect of gymnema extract on lowering blood levels of glucose, cholesterol and triglycerides is fairly gradual typically taking a few days to several weeks. Very high doses of the dried gymnema leaves may even help to repair the cellular damage that causes diabetes (by helping to regenerate the insulin producing beta-cells in the pancreas).
