Battle sugar cravings with Gymnema

Gymnema sylvestre

Gymnema sylvestre (Gymnema), also called sugar destroyer because the leaf suppresses the ability to taste sweet on the tongue, has been used to treat diabetes. Gymnema suppresses glucose absorption after eating via a number of mechanisms, it stimulates insulin secretion and increases the number of islets of Langerhans and number of pancreatic beta cells (cells for insulin production).

Gymnema also reduces cholesterol levels, food intake, body weight and sugar cravings.
