  • The primary benefit of Gymnena Silvestre is helping regulate glucose metabolism. Improved glucose metabolism plays an essential role in managing the symptoms of both type 1 and type 2 diabetes. Some experts refer to gymnena as one of the most practical herb for maintaining normal blood sugar levels. Gymnenic acid appears to do a couple of things: block sweet taste, slow the delivery of glucose from the intestine to the bloodstream, and improve the production of insulin in the pancreas.
  • Gymnena may also be used for effective weight management. When gymnena extract is put into the tongue, it appears to block the taste buds from tasting sugar. Regular use of Gymnena has reported decreased consumption of high carbohydrate foods. It eventually enhances the weight loss effects of a healthy diet and regular exercise in obese individuals.
  • In animal studies, Gymnena Sylvestre reduced cholesterol levels and triglycerides. It also prevents the formation of atherosclerotic plaques in the arterial walls to support healthy flow of blood and reduce blood pressure. These benefits of Gymnena reduce the risk for common cardiovascular health disorders such as hypertension, atherosclerosis, Coronary Artery Disease (CAD), and heart attack.

Gymnena Silvestre is a climbing herb that typically grows in the forests of India and Africa. It has been used in India’s traditional Ayurvedic medicine since the sixth BC for a wide range of illnesses ranging from gastric discomforts to diabetes. Its Hindi name “gumar” literally translates to “destroyer of sugar”, which is significantly related to the modern benefits of gymnena. The active components of Nature’s Way Gymnena are a group of saponins called gymnenic acids. These biologically active components are clinically proven to improve blood glucose metabolism by slowing down glucose transport from the small intestine to the bloodstream and supporting the production of insulin from the pancreas. Furthermore, it stimulates the growth of healthy pancreatic cells that manufactures insulin. When the herb is placed on the tongue, it prevents the taste buds from identifying the taste of sweetness. It can possibly help in reducing a high-carb diet for effective weight loss and blood sugar management in diabetes.
