Curb your appetite and urge to snack with Natrol® Gymnema Sylvestre!†
Gymnema Sylvestre (or just Gymnema) is an herb native to the tropical forests of India as well as Africa. Gymnema Sylvestre has been used in Ayurvedic medicine for over two millennia to balance blood sugar levels, gastrointestinal problems, water retention, and liver problems.†
The Hindu word for gymnema -- gurmar -- means "sugar destroyer." Experimental research has shown that active ingredients isolated from the leaves of this herb can block sugar receptors in the tongue of laboratory animals, which could explain the herb’s ability to suppress the sensation of sweet upon chewing. Today, Gymnema Sylvestre is used for metabolic syndrome, weight loss and appetite suppression.†
Gymnema Sylvestre contains substances that decrease the absorption of sugar from the intestine. Gymnema may also increase the amount of insulin in the body and increase the growth of cells in the pancreas, which is the place in the body where insulin is produced.†
