Our Gymnema sylvestre leaf extract is highly bioavailable. Gymnema is also known as "Sugar Destroyer" for it's sugar defeating properties which include reducing sugar absorption and removing some of the taste from sugar. 

Gymnema sylvestre, also known as Gurmar or the "sugar destroyer," is a woody climbing shrub native to the tropical forests of India, Africa, and Australia. It has been used for centuries in traditional Ayurvedic medicine to treat various ailments, particularly in the management of diabetes and weight loss.

The leaves of Gymnema sylvestre contain active compounds called gymnemic acids, which are believed to be responsible for its medicinal properties. These acids have a unique ability to inhibit the sensation of sweetness when they come into contact with taste buds.

One of the primary traditional uses of Gymnema sylvestre is in the management of diabetes. Gymnemic acids in the plant have been found to exhibit anti-diabetic properties by suppressing the taste of sweetness and reducing sugar cravings. It is believed that these compounds block the taste receptors for sweetness in the tongue, leading to a decreased desire for sugary foods. Additionally, Gymnema sylvestre may help regulate blood sugar levels by stimulating insulin production and improving glucose uptake in cells.

Gymnema sylvestre is also known for its potential benefits in weight management. By reducing cravings for sugary foods, it can help individuals limit their calorie intake and make healthier dietary choices. Furthermore, some research suggests that Gymnema sylvestre may enhance fat metabolism and contribute to weight loss.
