Ask Your Doctor about Gymnema sylvestre for Diabetes Management

Clinical studies confirm ancient knowledge of indigenous people and explorers that the leaves of this herb take away craving for sweet things.

Gymnema sylvestre leaf extracts in water can reduce blood glucose and fat content as well. You should not take such herbal medicine without asking your doctor, because it is likely to require dose reductions of your regular prescriptions over time; you might be allergic to the extract or to the leaves, and safety in pregnancy is unknown as well. Nevertheless, your physician may agree to let you try this herb extract.

Finding a reliable source of supply, and monitoring your blood glucose and lipids periodically, are keys to using Gymnema sylvestre safely over time.

Let me know if your physician and you would like more information about this herb.
