Tea for Diabetics.
18 HERBS ORGANICS DiaHealth Tea contains 100% pure-cut leaves of organically grown Gymnema herb (Gymnema sylvestre) carefully sourced from Natham and Podhigai tracts of Southern India that contain the highest efficacy of ‘Active Principles’.
Gymnema is a globally renowned natural treatment for Diabetes. It is a woody climbing shrub native to India and Africa. The leaves are used in medicinal preparations.
Gymnema has a long history of use in India’s Ayurvedic medicine and has been used to treat blood sugar imbalance for over 2,000 years. The Hindi name, Gurmar, literally means “destroyer of sugar.”
Today, gymnema is used for diabetes, metabolic syndrome, weight loss, and cough. It is also used for malaria and as a snake bite antidote, digestive stimulant, laxative, appetite suppressant, and diuretic.
The active compound of the plant is a group of acids termed as gymnemic acids. These help decrease the absorption of sugar from the intestine. Gymnema may also increase the amount of insulin in the body and increase the growth of cells in the pancreas, which is the place in the body where insulin is made. Also, gymnemic acid formulations have proved to be useful against obesity because they delay glucose absorption in the blood.
