Health Benefits of Gymnema Leaves Powder

–  Appetite Suppression: Gymnema’s main bioactive constituent is called  gymnemic acid which is a sweetness inhibitor and is found in its leaves and roots. By chewing gymnema leaves the sweet sensation of foods will disappear. This is the reason that suggests Gymnema as an appetite suppressant.

–  Nutritional Support for Diabetics: Gymnema sylvestre is considered to have anti-diabetic properties.  It’s also called gurmar, which is Hindi for ”destroyer of sugar”.Specifically it can block receptors in your intestines and thus sugar absorption, lowering your post-meal blood sugar levels. As a supplement, it has been used in combination with other diabetes medications to lower blood sugar.

–  Improves Cholesterol and Triglyceride Levels, Reducing Heart Disease Risk: Gymnema sylvestre may help lower “bad” LDL cholesterol levels and triglycerides. While Gymnema gets its fame from lowering blood sugar levels and reducing sugar cravings, research shows that it may also influence fat absorption and lipid levels.
