Gymnema - Standardized by Nature's Way.
Gymnema extract is standardized to 75% gymnemic acids. Gymnema is a traditional Ayurvedic medicine and is referred to as "destroyer of sugar" because chewing the leaves blocks the taste of sweetness.
Additionally, Gymnema extract suppresses the absorption of sugar in the system. The molecular structure of Gymnema sylvestre resembles that of glucose, temporarily attaching to the intestinal receptors that normally accept glucose. This reception of Gymnema sylvestre molecules inhibits intestinal glucose absorption, thus lowering blood sugar levels. Clinical studies in lab animals demonstrate that Gymnema sylvestre extract also appears to stimulate rejuvenation of essential pancreatic beta cells, the key cell responsible in the generation of insulin.
