Gymnema has the unique ability to temporarily block the taste of sweets, making it an excellent herb for people looking to reduce sugar cravings or control their weight. It may also help to regenerate the insulin-secreting cells found in the pancreas, increasing the activity of enzymes responsible for glucose uptake and utilization.
Diabetics may find that taking gymnema in conjunction with an appropriate diet helps control their blood sugar levels.
**Diabetics are advised to work closely with their doctor while taking gymnema, so that they may adjust their insulin doses if necessary. This may not be a full list of all possible contraindications.**
THS recommends that you consult with a qualified healthcare professional before using herbal products, particularly if you take other medications, or if you are nursing, pregnant, or expecting to become pregnant.
