How does the extract from this herb affect us? It contains gymneic acids located in the leaves that has been shown to slow glucose transport.
Blood Sugar Levels - The present article discusses the significance of G. sylvestre in diabetes management, the herbal-formulations from the herb together with its standardization and clinical trials on animal models, and why Peroxisome Proliferator Activated Receptor gamma (PPARγ) may serve as a prospective molecular target for Gymnemic acid analogs. Such studies would define the molecular basis of bioactive molecules which would aid in the development of natural product based therapeutics in the treatment of diabetes.
Gymnema sylvestre (Beta Fast GXR®) supplementation appears to improve glycemic control in patients with type 2 diabetes. Reducing postprandial blood glucose significantly caused a decrease of HbA1c, therefore reducing the complications from diabetes.
