What's Gymnema Extract
Gymnema (scientific name Gymnema sylvestre), also known as Gymnema rattan, has been used in Ayurvedic medicine for centuries. Gymnema sylvestre is a plant used in India and parts of Asia as a natural treatment for diabetes or “sweet urine.” The herb’s active ingredient, gymnemic acids, is extracted from leaves and roots, and helps to lower and balance blood sugar levels. The unique shape of gymnemic acids molecules are similar to that of glucose, allowing it to fill cell receptors in the lining the intestines, thereby preventing uptake of sugar molecules.
Gymnema extract is mainly composed of triterpenoid saponins, glycosides, flower pigments, polysaccharides and other constituents. The extract has hypoglycemic, lipid-lowering and anti-platelet aggregation activation. Its leaves are used to regulate traditional Chinese medicine, on its leaves chewed up, would interfere with sweet taste, its Hindi as Gurmar, interpreted as "sugar killer." In the past, the root of vine Gymnema is also often used to treat snake venom, constipation, Yang Wei, maintain moisture and liver disease. Vine Gymnema acid receptor molecule can cover one to two hours, thus inhibiting the food taste buds of the sugar molecules in the active.
