for Blood Sugar , Dr. Abhay Kumar Pati, DSc.

Gymnema sylvestre is a shrub and its leaves have been used as an herbal  and Ayurvedic   nutrient for centuries in India. A part of India's Ayurvedic tradition, it is commonly used today for its ability to promote healthy blood glucose levels already within the normal range. Studies have shown that Gymnema sylvestre supports the blocking of receptors within the intestines that absorb sugar as well as boosting insulin levels. Further, one of Gymnema sylvestre's active components is gymnemic acid, which promotes the suppression of sugar receptors in your taste buds, which may reduce the appeal  to  sweet and sugary foods.

Gymnema (Gymnema sylvestre) or Gurmar in Hindi is a plant in the Apocynaceae family, well known in Ayurvedic medicine for its medicinal purposes. The plant is a perennial woody vine that is found in tropical regions of India.

Gymnema is a climbing plant with elongated, oval leaves that have soft hairs on the top surface. The plant has small, yellow flowers that are produced throughout the year.

The Hindi term for G. sylvestre is gurmar, which is translated as sugar destroyer. This is because Gymnema sylvestre leaves contain gymnemic acids, which are major bioactive ingredients that act to suppress the taste of sugar by interacting with taste receptors on the tongue.1

This suppression of sugar taste is temporary, and it has been found to be useful in treating blood sugar, particularly in Ayurvedic practice.

Another reason that G. sylvestre is considered a sugar destroyer is because it is thought to inhibit sugar absorption in the body, thus, the plant has appeared in many research studies, evaluating its effectiveness for the treatment of weight loss and diabetes in Western medicine as well as in India.
