Gymnema (Gurmar) Capsules


This herb has been given the name ‘gur-mar’ meaning ‘sugar destroyer’ because of its property of abolishing the taste of sugar. It has the unique property of inhibiting the taste of sugar. Because it has molecular structure similar to that of sugar, it blocks up to 50% of the absorption of sugar. In doing so, it will not effect the taste of food but will suppress the desire of sweets. It has been in India for about 2000 years to regulate sugar metabolism with success. The plant is diuretic and antidiabetic. This is one of the main herbs used for healing diabetes mellitus. It has been believed, therefore, that it might neutralise the excess sugar present in the body in diabetes mellitus. It has been used in India as a remedy against this condition with success. The leaves raise insulin levels in Type 2 (adult-onset) diabetes by regeneration of the cells in the pancreas that secrete insulin. Other research has shown that it also improves uptake of glucose into cells by increasing the activity of the glucose utilizing enzymes, and prevents adrenaline from stimulating the liver to produce glucose, thereby reducing blood sugar levels in both Type 1 and Type 2 diabetes. It decreases cravings for sweet as it abolishes the taste of sugar. Gymnema has been successful in controlling the blood sugar level without reducing it to below the normal blood sugar level, an effect seen with the use of insulin or oral hypoglycemic sulfonylurea compounds. The leaves are also noted for lowering serum cholesterol and triglycerides. It also acts as a cardiovascular stimulant.
