Gymnema sylvestre, commonly called Gurmar is a herb native to the tropical forests of southern and central India.The plant is acrid, antiinflammatory, anodyne, liver tonic, emetic, diuretic. I is useful in hepatosplenomegaly, dypepsia, constipation, jaundice, halminthiasis, cardiopathy, amenorrhoea. The fresh leaves when chewed have the remarkable property of paralysing the sense of taste for sweet and bitter substance for some.It is a unique botanical product that has been used for centuries in Ayurvedic medicine. Gymnema, or gurmar, is also known as sugar destroyer, since it dulls the ability to taste sweetness.Interestingly, generations of people in India with diabetes have successfully chewed the leaves to help control blood sugar. Several small, placebo-controlled trials indicate that gymnema extracts may indeed lower blood sugar levels. In those with type 1 diabetes, gymnema seems to enhance the action of insulin. In one study, 27 people with type 1 diabetes who took gymnema leaf extracts for several months required less insulin to control their blood sugar levels. Animal studies also support this use; they 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 noninsulin-dependent diabetes--research findings indicate that the use of gymnema may improve blood sugar control and result in the need for smaller doses of oral diabetes drugs to control the disease. However, its critical that people with this disease dont abandon proven ways to manage it, from a healthy diet to regular exercise and medications when needed.
