Product Description

Gymnema Sylvestre Extract

The Extract of Gymnema is prepared from its leaves. Gymnema Sylvestre Extract is used in many traditional medicines which are useful to reduce blood sugar and cholesterol levels in diabetic animals and humans. In experimental and clinical trials,  Sylvestre Extract has been successful in controlling the blood sugar level without reducing it to below the normal blood sugar levels, an effect sometimes seen with the use of insulin or oral hypoglycemic sulphonylurea compounds.

Due to its non-toxic nature and sweetness-suppression activity, Gymnema  Extract can play a role in treating conditions caused by excessive sugar intakes.

The effectiveness of GS12, an extract from the leaves of  Extract, in controlling hyperglycaemia was investigated in 22 Type 2 diabetic patients on conventional oral anti-hyperglycaemic agents. Gymnema (400 mg/day) was administered for 18-20 months as a supplement to the conventional oral drugs. During supplementation, the patients showed a significant reduction in blood glucose, glycosylated haemoglobin and glycosylated plasma proteins, and conventional drug dosage could be decreased.

Five of the 22 diabetic patients were able to discontinue their conventional drug and maintain their blood glucose homeostasis with Gymnema alone. These data suggest that the beta cells may be regenerated/repaired in Type 2 diabetic patients with supplementation. This is supported by the appearance of raised insulin levels in the serum of patients after supplementation.
