Gymnema 75 - 150 Veggie Capsules
Gymnema sylvestre (GS), an herb belonging to the Asclepiadacea family, is a woody branched vine growing in the wild forests of Central and South India. The plant has been used by the traditional medical practitioners of India since Buddha’s era. The hypoglycemic effect of this herb was scientifically tested for the first time in 1930. It was observed that GS lowered blood glucose levels in alloxan-induced diabetic dogs but not in pancreactomized animals, suggesting that some residual pancreatic tissue is needed for this herb to be effective. Further research revealed that GS significantly lowered blood glucose levels in both insulin-dependent and non-insulin-dependent diabetic rats. Since conventional treatments often support part of the problem but neglect or create others, the search for natural treatments for blood sugar control persist. In this context, the Ayurved herb Gymnema sylvestre has gained considerable importance and generated much scientific and medical interest.
Gymnema-75 is a high-potency extract of Gymnema sylvestre, an herb used in traditional Ayurvedic medicine as Dipana (digestive tonic) to help promote digestion. Recent science recognizes terpenoids called gymnemic acids as the active molecules.
