Gymnema sylvestre (gurmar) is a plant originating from Asia, called by the Indians "the destroyer of sugar". Its leaves contain unique gymnemic acid, which shows hypoglycemic and hypolipemic effect. However, the biggest phenomenon is that gurmar temporarily blocks the ability to feel sweet taste.
Supplements in this category are an excellent option for people addicted to sweets. They can be used as an adjuvant when reducing excess weight, especially if overweight is the result of frequent snacking. Preparations containing gurmar leaf extract are also recommended for people who eat large amounts of carbohydrates, as well as for those with unstable glucose metabolism and with proneness of hypoglycemia.
It is worth mentioning that the participants of many studies on the properties of Gymnema sylvestre extracts were diabetics. Supplements have been surprisingly effective in case of type 1 and type 2 diabetes. Supplements allowed the patients to give up their medications or at least reduce them. However, if you are taking such medications, consult your doctor before starting the supplementation.
Our store includes a wide selection of supplements containing gurmar leaf extract. We also offer preparations with GS4 PLUS® -- a patented extract from Gymnema sylvestre, which has been the subject of many clinical trials, both with the participation of healthy people and diabetics. All confirmed its effectiveness and safety of use.
