Gymnema Sylvestre: An Antidiabetic Medicinal Plant Better Than Cinnamon

If a plant was called “destroyer of sugar” in ancient times by Ayurvedic physicians, you can conclude that it’s definitely something to check into for diabetes.


This is one of the few plants on the face of the earth that you can stop a sugar craving dead in its tracks. Literally, if you are in the middle of a sugar binge, you could chew a few leaves of Gymnema sylvestre and like magic, the cravings would stop immediately.

The reason this happens is that the taste buds are changed. You won’t taste sweet foods after the leaf of Gymnema touches your taste buds. This then results in you not wanting the food anymore – and you stop eating it.

With power to instill healing that great, you could easily understand why physicians in India use Gymnema for a diabetes cure. It stops cravings. It lowers blood sugar levels. It helps regenerate the pancreas.  It increases the efficiency of insulin in your body.  And it is helpful for other health conditions such as asthma, bronchitis, enlarged heart, constipation, and hemorrhoids.

Weight Loss Possible With Gymnema

Because of its effects on blood sugar regulation, you might lose weight while taking it. When your blood sugar levels are in the normal range, weight gain doesn’t happen too often. Gymnema also lowers fats in the blood such as cholesterol and triglycerides. It acts as an anti-inflammatory agent in the body, too and scarfs up free radicals as fast as a binge eater eats foods. Having fewer free radicals in your body means less aging.

My History with Gymnema

Once a natural healing practitioner such as myself discovers Gymnema, we wonder what took so long to find it since it’s a true treasure. I had been in practice for 20 years before I came across it. And interestingly, some of my colleagues are just discovering this herb today.

I recommend it frequently to patients and can always count on its positive healing properties, especially on diabetics.

Diabetes Resource for You

Diabetes has reached epidemic proportions throughout the whole world. One of the reasons why could be is that sugar and wheat have spread to third world countries. Sugar in its refined form is poisonous in many ways (as addictive as cocaine, tied to every major illness). But why is wheat mentioned? Isn’t wheat the bread of life?

Well, it used to be the bread of life until genetic engineers changed it. They modified the wheat plant into what they thought it should be instead of leaving it alone in its pure form. As a result, they added genes to the plant that make people sensitive to the gluten in it. They modified its glycemic index so that now after you eat it, your blood sugar rises. Genetically modified wheat is linked to over 300 different diseases. All this may be confirmed in the book, Wheat Belly by William Davis, M.D.

Eating plenty of sugar and plenty of wheat is a sure recipe for creating your own diabetes. Plus all the sugar is a sure way to inactivate your immune system and make bacteria more active. Either way, you’ll end up needing Gymnema. The herb also has proven antibacterial activity against Staphylococcus aureus, Salmonella bacteria, Klebsiella pneumonia and Pseudomonas aeruginosa (cause lung problems), E. coli and Bacillus subtilis.

You could keep going back to your medical doctor for diabetes treatment for decades until you die of a diabetes complication. That’s not to say that you shouldn’t go to your medical doctor at all. Obviously, it’s smart to go get regular checkups and find out how your health is and whether or not it’s improving.

Safety:  Should You Try It?

But you could also try taking the herb Gymnema that has been used for centuries by millions of people – your ancestors. If the plant weren’t safe, then it wouldn’t still be used. Modern scientific studies look at herbs from a medical viewpoint – and often miss their beauty and benefits. They see them as drugs with one action; yet every herb has built into its composition many positive actions and functions in the body.

The adult dosage for the herbal supplement is 400 mg after breakfast and 400 mg after lunch.

Learn more about Gymnema. I guarantee the more you learn about it, the more you’ll love this herb. And you’re sure to love it more than synthetic drugs with side effects, pancreas transplants, and all the medical treatments for diabetes complications.
