Brisbane, QLD -- (SBWIRE) -- 12/19/2014 -- A new health blog, Gymnemasylvestre.org, was recently launched to provide readers information about the benefits of Gymnema Sylvestre as a treatment for diabetes. According to the blog, Gymnema Sylvestre extract is an effective supplement for Type 1 and Type 2 diabetes. The blog further mentions that the herb is also used to help with weight loss as well as for the treatment of cough and malaria, as a laxative and as an effective appetite suppressant. Gymnemasylvestre.org contains many valuable details about Gymnema Sylvestre including how this herb can be grown at home.
Gymnema Sylvestre is an herb predominantly found in the tropical forests of southern and central India and was first used to treat diabetes almost 2000 years ago in Ayurveda, the traditional Indian medicine. Although there is very little scientific evidence to support its efficacy, several small clinical trials have shown Gymnema Sylvestre to reduce blood glucose levels. In one of the trials, it was found that members of the trial who took 400 mg of Gymnema Sylvestre daily along with their diabetes medications, experienced results that showed significant drops in their glycosylated plasma protein levels and blood sugar. At the end of this clinical trial, some researchers concluded that Gymnema Sylvestre supplementation may help in regenerating beta cells in Type 2 diabetic patients.
According to Gymnemasylvestre.org, Gymnema Sylvestre works by reducing the sweetness associated with sweet food and thereby, helping regulate blood sugar and stimulating the production and secretion of insulin from the pancreas. When taken as a supplement, it is supposed to help diabetic patients control their blood sugar. Gymnema Sylvestre also, reportedly, helps in weight loss by acting as an appetite suppressant and slowing the absorption of fat in a body. According to a research, taking a combination of Gymnema Sylvestre extract, niacin-bound chromium and HCA, purportedly, helped in reducing body weight in people who were obese or overweight.
Gymnemasylvestre.org further reported that besides controlling diabetes and helping in weight loss, Gymnema Sylvestre has many more benefits. The herb helps people suffering from indigestion problems and is used as a snake bite antidote, laxative, diuretic and treatment of malaria.
