*According to the Journal of Clinical Biochemistry and Nutrition, Gymnema sylvestre is regarded as one of the plants with potent anti-diabetic properties. This plant is also used for controlling obesity in the form of Gymnema tea/tincture. The active compound of the plant is a group of acids termed as gymnemic acids. It has been observed that there could be a possible link between obesity, Gymnemic acids and diabetes.
These molecules fill the receptor locations on the taste buds thereby preventing diabetic activation by sugar molecules present in the food, thus curbing the sugar craving. The leaves are also noted for lowering serum cholesterol and triglycerides.
Obesity also plays an important role in the development of diabetes. It decreases the number of insulin receptors in insulin target cells throughout the body, thus making the amount of insulin that is available, less effective in promoting its usual metabolic functions.
In 1997, a Japanese scientist described the anti-sweet activity of gymnemic acid, the inhibition of intestinal sugar absorption and insulin secretion by gymnemic acids, anti-diabetic effect of leaves of G. sylvestre and the development of Gymnema tea/ tinctures and Gymnema chewing gum for health food for preventing obesity and diabetes.
