Topic: Gymnema Sylvestre - how to best use it for maximum safety and effectiveness.
So How Effective Is Gymnema Sylvestre
For Lowering Blood Sugar & Glucose?...
Nicknamed the "sugar destroyer", Gymnema sylvestre has been used safely by people in India for 5,000 years. This natural herb can help balance your fasting blood sugar, maintain healthy hemoglobin A1c, support your body's glycemic control and increase the efficiency of insulin inside your body (1) (2).
Gymnema sylvestre can also help promote digestive health and reduce lipids (fats and triglycerides). It has anti-inflammatory properties as well. As an added bonus, it's used to reduce the absorption of glucose into the body, and also helps suppress sugar cravings, both of which are desirable for those wishing to lose weight and to reduce the level of sugar in their blood.
Warnings & "Scams"
As with anything, there are always potential "negatives" and here are a few things you want to watch out for. Generally speaking, Gymnema Sylvestre has been shown to be safe, when taken in proper dosages. However, a few things to consider:
Gymnema Sylvestre Extract
- As seen in the clinical studies, you want to ONLY use the "extract" form and NOT the "raw powder" - which doesn't have any glucose lowering benefits.
- The CORRECT extract for use is standardized for 75% Bymnemic Acids.
- You don't want to take only Gymnema Sylvestre by itself, because you would need a very high dosages to feel the glucose lowering benefits. And not only are there potential side-effects at higher dosages - such as liver stress, but your body will adapt quicker and thus, an even higher dose will be required over time.
It's best to combine Gymnema Sylvestre with other ingredients (more on this below) for improved benefits and reduced side-effects.
But, don't go out and spend your hard-earned money on Gymnema Sylvestre just yet ...
So, What's YOUR Best & "Safest" Solution?...
I'll be honest with you. No one single ingredient works at 100% effectiveness forever, let alone for every person. And this includes any single herb, vitamin or nutrient. Think about it. Just like you don't eat only broccoli for best health, you don't want to use only one herb or nutrient either.
The most effective and safest products use a combination of different nutrients and ingredients, at specific proven dosages, creating a special synergy which will dramatically help lower blood sugar & glucose, without serious negative side-effects.
Now, based on my research, the following ingredient have been scientifically shown to work, they're effective and safe for both short and long-term usage *:
- ChromeMate® (as Chromium Polynicotinate)
- Alpha Lipoic Acid (NA-R version is best)
- Cinnamon Extract (4:1 ratio)
- Bitter Melon
- Gymnema Sylvestre Extract (75% Gymnemic Acids)
- Bilberry Leaf Extract (25% Anthocyanosides)
- Fenugreek Extract
- Banaba Leaf Extract (1% corosolic acid)
Additionally, whatever product you select - make sure it has contains some essential vitamins and minerals, that are typically lacking and not being absorbed properly by individuals with glucose problems. The most important are:
- Magnesium (as Glycinate & Citrate)
- Vitamin C
- B-Vitamins (B1, B3, B5, B6 and B12)
- Zinc Picolinate
- Biotin (very important)
When the above ingredients are combined together in proper ratios, the "synergy" creates a much more effective solution, at a lower dose - WITHOUT your body adapting or having negative side-effects. That's the secret!...
