Use Gymnema Sylvestre to control your diabetes  


Gymnema sylvestre is a natural Ayurvedic medicine used in India in the treatment of diabetes.  Gymnema sylvestre helps to lower and control blood sugar levels.

Gymnema Sylvestre is a woody climbing plant which grows in central and southern India and used in the ayurvedic treatment of type 1 and type 2 diabetes.  The roots and leaves of the Gymnema sylvestre plant are used and the active ingredient, which is thought to be gymnemic acid, is extracted from these.  The gymnemic acid molecules attach to the cell receptors in the lining of the intestines preventing the absorption of sugar molecules and hence controlling blood sugar levels.  Gymnema sylvestre can be used together with insulin in controlling diabetes and this should be discussed with a doctor as the medications may need to be reduced.  Tests have shown that Gymnema sylvestre taken as a supplement has eliminated or reduced the need for insulin treatment.

Gymnema Sylvestre is also known by other names such as gurmar, meaning sugar destroyer, gurmarbooti, gurmari, meshasringi, mesbasringi and  periploca of the woods.  The leaves of Gymnema sylvestre, when chewed, have a bitter taste and interfere with the ability to taste sweetness, giving the name sugar destroyer.  Although the primary use for Gymnema sylvestre is in the treatment of diabetes it has also been used to treat rheumatic arthritis, gout, and stomach ailments.  Gymnema sylvestre has also been used successfully in natural reatment of constipation, water retention, and liver disease.  Gymnema sylvestre has also proven useful in weight loss regimes as it reduces the cravings for sugar which arise when blood sugar levels fall.

Chewing the leaves destroys the ability to discriminate the 'sweet' taste, giving it its common name, gurmar, or 'sugar destroyer.' Gymnema sylvestre is a stomachic, diuretic, refrigerant, astringent, and tonic. The leaves of this plant have been used in India for over 2000 years to treat diabetes and diabetic symptoms. The leaves are also used for stomach ailments, constipation, water retention, and liver disease. Clinical tests showed that regular use over a period of three to four months helped to reduce glycosuria, or the appearance of carbohydrates in urine. Recent clinical trials conducted in India have shown that an extract of Gymnema sylvestre is useful for controling blood sugar levels. In reducing the symptom of glycosuria, the dried leaves are used in daily doses of three to four grams for a period of three months or more. Both animal and human studies have shown Gymnema to increase urine output and reduce hyperglycemia. Gymnema has been demonstrated to work in multiple ways. It raises insulin levels, apparently by helping to regenerate cells in the pancreas that secrete insulin. Gymnema also improves the uptake of glucose into cells, thus preventing adrenaline from stimulating the liver to produce glucose. Gymnema also significantly reduces the metabolic effects of sugar by preventing the intestines from absorbing the sugar molecules during the process of digestion. The leaves are also noted for lowering serum cholesterol and triglycerides. Gymnema cannot be used in place of insulin for type 1 or type 2 diabetes, but has been successfully used as a supplemental therapy to help control blood sugar levels by both groups.
