What it is; why it works

A member of the milkweed family, gymnema sylvestre is native to the tropical regions of India. Nicknamed the "sugar destroyer" because the leaves effectively block sweet tastes in the mouth when chewed, the herb is often promoted as an appetite suppressant and weight-loss agent.

Interestingly, generations of people in India with diabetes have successfully chewed the leaves to help control blood sugar. Several controlled trials indicate that gymnema extracts indeed lower blood sugar levels. In those with type 1 diabetes, gymnema seems to enhance the action of insulin. In one study, people with type 1 diabetes who took gymnema leaf extracts for several months required less insulin to control their blood sugar levels.

Studies indicate that gymnema can double the amount of insulin-producing cells in the pancreas, and return blood sugar levels to normal as a result.

In the case of the far more prevalent type 2 diabetes--also known as non insulin-dependent diabetes--research findings indicate that the use of gymnema improves blood sugar control and result in the need for smaller doses of oral diabetes drug to control the disease. However, it's critical that people with this disease don't abandon their proven ways to manage it, from a healthy diet to regular exercise and medications when needed.

Traditional Ayurvedic medicine uses gymnema to treat a variety of other disorders as well, including digestion problems, in lowering cholesterol, triglycerides, and LDL ("bad") cholesterol.


  • Elevated Cholesterol: 1 capsule 1-2 times daily.
  • Blood Sugar Regulation: 1 capsule twice daily with meals.


  • Caution should be used if you are diabetic and wish to supplement your diabetic regimen. Talk to your health care provider prior to changing your insulin levels.


  • Gymnema sylvestre extract (leaf) 250 mg (standardized to 75% gymnemic acids)
  • vitamin C (as ascorbyl palmitate) 10 mg

Additional Therapy:

Garlic-Cholesterol Reducer

Garlic helps in thinning the blood which lowers cholesterol thus averting heart attacks. Research in garlic at the Geneva University indicated significant reduction in blood pressure by dilating or opening up the blood vessels thus relieving symptoms like chest pains, dizziness and headaches within a week or two after garlic treatment.
