Many of us experience the dreaded mid-afternoon slump – what energy you may have had that morning is seemingly gone, and you’re feeling tired and unmotivated. When your blood sugar levels are naturally out of balance, it can feel like your energy is draining away. Your blood sugar levels can drop naturally, often in the late afternoon, triggering sugar cravings.
For over 2,000 years, Gymnema sylvestre has traditionally been used as a key herb to help maintain blood sugar levels that are already within a healthy range. In India, it’s called gurmar, the “sugar destroyer”. That’s because, since ancient times, natural clinicians have noted that it suppresses the taste of sugar. That’s why we suggest MediHerb’s Gymnema – because it delivers the same unique result.
What is Gymnema?
Gymnema supports healthy pancreatic function and the normal production of insulin in the body.1 By helping to maintain normal blood sugar levels within a normal range, it can help support weight management and balance energy levels.* Gymnema has been used for centuries in Ayurvedic medicine. Its reputation is also well supported by modern research. There have bee 130 scientific studies published on Gymnema.*
Try the sweet taste test
You’ll be amazed by this test: place one Gymnema tablet on your tongue for 60-90 seconds. Swallow the tablet, wait a minute, and then try something sweet – even a few sugar crystals. You’ll find that you can’t taste the sweetness!
Why we recommend MediHerb’s Gymnema
What’s so unique about this brand? Good quality Gymnema is defined by the levels of its active ingredient – gymnemic acids. MediHerb meticulously verifies the quantity of gymnemic acids in the Gymnema raw material, and they ensure the acids are retained in the product throughout manufacture.
Gymnema contains guaranteed levels of gymnemic acids, which means that the recommended suggested use of 1 to 2 tablets daily will help support healthy blood sugar levels already within a normal range.*
Who needs Gymnema?
Anyone who wants to prevent the natural drop in blood sugar that sometimes occurs in the afternoon, and anyone whose blood sugar levels are already within a healthy range who want to maintain those healthy levels. Gymnema can also be a beneficial addition to a weight loss plan when combined with a calorie-controlled diet and exercise. In addition, Gymnema may even help maintain healthy cholesterol and triglyceride levels already in a normal range.*
