- Balance Blood Sugar -
Sanskrit name translates to 'sweet-destroyer' as the fresh leaves numb the taste buds to sweet and bitter tastes, and hence the herbs used in balancing blood sugar levels. When consumed prior to a sugary food or beverage, gymnemic acid blocks the sugar receptors on your taste buds. Similar to its effects on your taste buds, Gymnema sylvestre can also block receptors in your intestines and thus sugar absorption, lowering your post-meal blood sugar levels.
***Should not be taken at the same time as blood-sugar-lowering medications, including insulin injections.***
Suggested Use: Brew as a tea by adding 1 Tablespoon in a cup of boiling water. Steep for 5-10 mins. Enjoy! *Increase dosage if needed.
