Gymnema Sylvestre

2 oz.

Gymnema sylvestre is a woody vine native to the tropical forests of India, Africa, and Australia. Here are some potential health benefits:

Blood Sugar Regulation: Gymnema sylvestre is renowned for its ability to help regulate blood sugar levels. It contains compounds known as gymnemic acids, which may improve insulin sensitivity, reduce sugar absorption in the intestine, and lower blood sugar levels. This makes it beneficial for individuals with diabetes or those looking to manage their blood sugar levels.

Weight Management: Some studies suggest that gymnema sylvestre may aid in weight management by reducing sugar cravings and appetite. It may also inhibit the absorption of dietary fats and carbohydrates, leading to reduced calorie intake and potential weight loss.

Cholesterol Reduction: Gymnema sylvestre may help lower LDL (bad) cholesterol levels and triglycerides, while increasing HDL (good) cholesterol levels. This can help reduce the risk of heart disease and improve overall cardiovascular health.

Digestive Health: Gymnema sylvestre has digestive properties that can help alleviate indigestion, bloating, and constipation. It may also support gut health by promoting the growth of beneficial bacteria in the digestive tract, enhancing nutrient absorption and overall digestive function.

Directions: add one teaspoon of gymnema sylvestre to hot water. Steep for 5 to 10 minutes. Strain and enjoy. 


FYI: Please consult your healthcare provider prior to use if you are pregnant or nursing, taking any medication, or have a medical condition.
