Today’s obesity is the cause of many of the old herbs that researchers have been oblivious to today. Such is the plant, Gymnema Sylvestre, which has become known as a sugar-killer herb in the world.
It is a dense-leaved vine-like climbing plant that climbs on bushes and trees, native to southern India. It has been used in India for over 2000 years. The plant is known as the sugar destroyer in the world because in ancient times Ayurvedic doctors observed that the consumption of the leaves of this plant suppresses the taste of sugar. After consuming the leaves of gymnema sylvestre, also known as gourmet leaves, the taste buds of the tongue numb so that they do not taste either sweet or bitter; hence the name of the herb: “the destroyer of the sweet” (madhu-vinashi, gurmar).
The compound found in the plant is gimnemic acid, which helps to normalize blood glucose levels. It reduces your cravings for carbohydrates and your hunger, making it easier to avoid the temptation of chocolate and cakes.
