Gymnema (Gymnema sylvestre) is an herb that grows on a vine in the tropical regions of Africa, India, and Australia. The leaves have been used for thousands of years in Ayurvedic medicine for diabetes, inflammation, lung conditions, wounds, and more. It has recently gained attention for its benefits regarding cholesterol, fat, and, most notably, blood sugar. Gymnema helps to reduce sugar cravings by suppressing sweet taste mechanisms without affecting satisfaction from other foods. It’s often referred to as “the sugar destroyer” for this reason. This sweet-supressing property has been shown to reduce sugar intake. Gymnema leaves contain important sugarregulating constituents like gymnemic acids, gymnemosides, and gurmarin. The gymnemic acid constituent not only suppresses sugar cravings but also attaches to sugar receptors so that the amount of sugar absorbed in the intestines is greatly decreased.

Gymnema has been shown in scientific studies to:

  • Help reduce cravings for sugar and highcarbohydrate foods
  • Help suppress the sweet taste sensation
  • Support normal blood sugar control
