Gymnema Sylvestre – “Sugar Destroyer”


gymnema-sylvestre

Working as a health coach has allowed me to see the danger of sugar in many people’s lives. Sometimes, we need help to overcome this addiction. I suggest turning to gymenema sylvestre. This amazing herb decreases the absorption of sugar in the intestine, promotes regeneration of insulin-secreting cells in the pancreas, positively impacts cholesterol levels, helps increase insulin levels, reduces physical cravings for sugar and literally masks it’s taste. In fact, it makes any sugary treat taste rather gross if you drink it prior to (within two hours) ingesting it. It’s a great option for those trying to balance candida levels, release weight, or balance blood sugar levels.

While this herb doesn’t have pain killing power, many of my clients who have used it have reported that they no longer experience joint pain. Since most joint pain is caused by mucus and inflammation prone to acid body environments and sugar is a primary cause of this condition, I believe the pain relief claims are possible. The reduction in sugar in the diet as a result of consuming this herb along with the herbs ability to help the body eliminate sugar from the blood in a productive manner are just two of the reasons their pain might be going away. Body builders may find a friend in this herb because when taken with a high-carbohydrate meal or with a meal high in sugar, it passes through sugars and makes carbs available for burning and prevents them from turning into fat stores. This promotes lean muscle mass.

This herb can be ingested as  tea or one can simply chew on the leaves. It should be taken with food as it could upset the stomach. Also, drink at least half your body weight in ounces of water each day when consuming this herb. In fact, make sure that you drink room temperature or warm lemon water when you wake up in the morning. This will help your liver to excrete the excess sugar. The herb should not be used as a way to eat all the sweets your heart desires. Instead, use it in conjunction with a clean diet.

Love and light.
