GLOSSARY
GYMNEMA SYLVESTRE (GYMNEMA)

Gymnema Sylvestre (Gymnema)

 

How does it work?

Gymnema is used in western and traditional ayurvedic medicine for its sweet-taste suppression, antidiabetic, blood sugar stabilising, hypocholesterolaemic and antimicrobial actions.1 The taste suppression is due to containing gymnemic acid, which inhibits the ability to taste sweetness, which can result in reduced intake of calories and assist in weight loss.2 Gymnema also helps to reduce the absorption of glucose in the intestine, stimulate secretion of insulin, reduce fat digestibility and increases faecal excretion of cholesterol and neutral sterols.3

What results can be expected?

Gymnema may assist in weight loss due to reducing sweet taste suppression and therefore restrict calorie intake.Due to the above actions, Gymnema may also be a beneficial adjunct treatment for those with type 1 and 2 diabetes, hyperglycaemia or high cholesterol/triglyceride levels.
