How often have you experienced that afternoon slump?
It’s midway through the day, you’re tired and your “get up and go” seems like it’s all gone.
Why does this happen? Well, when your blood sugar levels are naturally out of balance, energy feels like it’s draining away. Your blood sugar levels can drop naturally, often in the late afternoon, triggering sugar cravings.
For more than 2,000 years, Gymnema sylvestre has been used traditionally as a key herb to help maintain healthy blood sugar levels already within a healthy range.
In India, it’s called Gurmar, the “Sugar Destroyer”. That’s because, since ancient times, natural clinicians have noted that it suppresses the taste of sugar.
A really cool thing to do is the Gymnema Sweet Taste Test:
Try this simple test and be amazed – especially if you have a sweet tooth. Just place one Gymnema tablet on your tongue for 60 to 90 seconds. It might not taste great, but you’ll love what happens next. Swallow the tablet, wait a minute, then try something sweet – perhaps a few sugar crystals. Surprise – no sweet taste! Your body will love it because:
- Gymnema supports healthy pancreatic function and the normal production of insulin in the body.
- By helping to maintain normal blood sugar levels within a normal range, it can help support weight management and balance energy levels.
I highly recommend MediHerb’s Gymnema because it contains one unique herb, Gymnema sylvestre leaf. It is standardized to compounds called saponins, specifically the gymnemic acids. Gymnema has been used for centuries in Ayurvedic medicine. Its reputation is also well supported by modern research. There have been 130 scientific studies published on Gymnema.
Who Needs Gymnema?
Everyone who wants to prevent the natural drop in blood sugar that sometimes occurs in the afternoon and to help maintain healthy blood sugar levels already within a healthy range. Gymnema can also be a beneficial addition to a weight loss plan, when combined together
with a calorie-controlled diet and exercise. Additionally, Gymnema may help to maintain healthy cholesterol and triglyceride levels within a normal range.
1. Maintain healthy blood sugar levels already within a normal range when combined with a balanced diet.
2. Maintain normal cholesterol levels already within a normal range.
Eating sugar has a lot of ill effects on the body. Cutting back on sugar will make you feel more energetic and prevent heart issues, diabetes and tons of other physical ailments.
Hope this helps anyone who was trying to find an alternative to just cutting out sugar “cold turkey”.
