Gymnema Sylvestre

Gymnema Sylvestre (GS), a herb native to Asia and known as gurmar (sugar destroyer) in Hindi, has leaves that have unusually beneficial properties in treating diabetes. Gymnema contains a unique ingredient called gymnemic acid, which is similar in structure to glucose but does not behave like that in the body.  Gymnemic acid actually blocks sugar absorption in the intestines. Studies have shown that Gymnemic acid may also increase the production of insulin in the body, improve glucose utilization and increase the growth of cells in the pancreas, where insulin is produced.
