Gymnema the elixir herb of Ayurveda

Gymnema is an ancient Ayurvedic herb that has a history of thousands of years for its use for controlling blood sugar in diabetes. Found in Indian and African forests, this wonder herb has various benefits in the health world. In India it is called by various names for its magic quality of killing sugar. Botanically called Synsepalum dulcificum, its name in Hindi is gurmar, and in South Indian languages chakkarakolli and madhunasini, all literally meaning destroyer of sugar. In the west it is called cow plant and Australian cowplant. Its double relationship with sugar has made it a very effective remedy for lowering blood sugar. If you chew the leaves, your tongue loses the sensation of sweetness for sometime. There is a special acid in the leaves called gymnemic acid which yields this result.

South Indian tribal people use the leaves of gymnema for all their urinary ailments. Ayurveda uses this herb for various diseases, including diabetes, urinary disorders, weight loss, cough, stomach troubles, malaria, skin disorders, etc. It serves as an antidote for poisonous bites also. It has digestive stimulant, laxative, appetite suppressant, and diuretic properties. Modern health world is wondering at its therapeutic property for stimulating insulin secretion in individuals with type 2 diabetes. It also helps preventing adrenal hormones from stimulating the liver to produce glucose which, in turn, helps reducing blood sugar levels.

Modern world is looking for natural medicines of alternative systems which are less in side effects. Use of Ayurvedic herbs such as gymnema is a great boon to the diabetic patients who are much distressed with the prolonged use of conventional drugs that have side effects. Although gymnema is a wonderful panacea for many diseases, it has to be used only with the guidance of the physicians. Sometimes it may lower the blood sugar level too much that it may create hypoglycemic reactions.
