Healthy Blood Sugar Levels : Gymnema-75 is an extract of the herb Gymnema sylvestre. This herb is used in Ayurvedic medicine to help with glucose metabolism. Gymnema extracts have been tested scientifically and found to help with diabetes and its complications, such as cardiovascular disorders. Benefits for Diabetics Clinical trials have found that Gymnema can lower blood glucose in both insulin-dependent (type 1) and insulin-independent (type 2) diabetes. In non-insulin dependent diabetes, Gymnema reduced the requirements for other medications. In diabetes mellitus patients, Gymnema increased the body’s insulin levels and reduced the requirement for injected insulin. To date, no other substance has had this effect among insulinrequiring individuals. Gymnema was also found to help normalize lipid levels. Gymnema is thought to increase insulin sensitivity and may help regenerate or repair beta cells in the pancreas that produce insulin. Gymnema for Glucose Gymnema’s effect on glucose metabolism offers important benefits for anyone dealing with diabetes and/or the effects of high blood sugar levels. It also offers protection against diabetic complications. AOR’s Gymnema-75 provides a high-potency, standardized extract of this powerful herb.
