Gymnema blocks the taste of sugar, helps insulin insufficiency


Sugar Metabolism

Support for : Pitta • Kapha

Pronunciation: gym-nem’-uh

Use Gymnema to help remove accumulated sugars, a result of Pitta or Kapha imbalance. After taking Gymnema, many people report a decrease in cravings for sugar or sweet foods. Traditionally in India, people would chew leaves of Gymnema and find that the taste of sugar is gone from their mouth. This can help cut down the inclination to sweet foods. You may have a similar effect if you open the capsule and empty the contents in the mouth. However, we  suggest that this product be used in capsules, as directed.
Suggested Use: 1 capsule twice a day with meals.
Pack size: 60 Vegetarian capsules.
Complementary/synergistic productsAshwagandha

Gymnema has been used safely and effectively in India for many centuries. We suggest this product not be used if you are pregnant or nursing, or are taking a diuretic. Keep away from children.

Lifestyle Suggestions

Individuals of dominant Kapha Doshas have slower metabolism and are often attracted to sweet foods. Pitta governs metabolic activities in the body, such as sugar metabolism. An exaggerated Pitta imbalance affects the body’s metabolism, including sugar metabolism. Kaphas sometimes need help to curb sugar cravings. Gymnema helps sugar metabolism to balance both of these body type imbalances. Kaphas should start a regimented exercise program and minimize oily, sweet, heavy foods.

Pitta dominant people should not just limit sugar intake when out of balance; but also keep an eye on Pitta aggravating foods (hence taxing an overworked metabolic system) such as oily, fried, spicy foods and alcohol.
