Gymulin (Gymnema)
Millions of Americans have difficulty maintaining stable blood
sugar levels that are already within the normal range.1 The herb
Gymnema is traditionally known as “gurmar” (the sugar
destroyer). For the past 1500 years, Ayurvedic physicians have
used a combination of diet and Gymnema leaf to help support
normal blood sugar levels.2 Helps to maintain blood sugar
levels that are already within the normal range* Supports
healthy function of the pancreas* The Science of
Gymnema Research has shown that Gymnema (Gymnema sylvestre) has
a beneficial effect on Beta cells in the pancreas,3 and delays
glucose absorption in the intestine4. This activity helps
protect the pancreas from releasing too much insulin. Long-term
intake of Gymnema leaf extract lowered the body weight and
triglyceride levels of rats fed a high-carbohydrate, low-fat
diet, whether they were lean or over-weight and without altering
their serum levels of insulin.5 The inhibition of body weight
gain and cholesterol levels by Gymnema leaf extract has been
attributed to the constituent, gymnemagenin.6 Directions

seven basic body constitutions resulting from the predominance
of one or more energetic influences or Doshas. The Doshas, Vata,
Pitta and Kapha, influence physical, mental and spiritual
health. Everyone is considered to be a unique combination of
these three body influences. Your natural Doshic state of
balance is called Prakruti. Gymnema helps to maintain blood
sugar levels that are already within the normal range and can
help to balance certain Doshas. Care for the

choices can make a difference. A recent study published in the
New England Journal of Medicine showed that a healthy lifestyle
including weight loss and moderate exercise can help to
stabilize blood sugar levels. Eat a low-fat, high-fiber diet,
including foods such as bran cereal, fruits, and
vegetables. Remember to breathe deeply and try to reduce
stress. Quit smoking, since it can aggravate health
problems. Stay active and exercise at least three times per
week. References 1. National Institute of Health: National
