Gymnema sylvestre

Project Profile
  • Gymnema sylvestre is an herb native to the tropical forests of southern and central India.
  • Chewing the leaves suppresses the sensation of sweet. This effect is attributed to the presence of the eponymously named gymnemic acids.
  • G. sylvestre has been used in 
    traditional medicine as a treatment for diabetes for nearly two millennia, but there is insufficient scientific evidence to draw definitive conclusions about its efficacy.
  • It is used in folk, ayurvedic and homeopathic systems of medicine because of believed potent antidiabetic effect.
  • Common names include miracle fruit, gymnema, cowplant, Australian cowplant, gurmari, gurmarbooti, gurmar, periploca of the woods, and meshasringa.
  • Gymnema reduces the taste of sugar when it is placed in the mouth.
  • From extract of the leaves were isolated glycosides known as gymnemic acids, which exhibit 
    anti-sweet activity. This effect lasts up to about 2 hours. Some postulate that the herb may reduce cravings for sugar by blocking sugar receptors in the tongue.
  • This effect was observed in isolated rat neurons. The active ingredients are thought to be the family of compounds related to gymnemic acid: purified gymnemic acids are widely used as experimental reagents in taste 
    physiology and have also an anti-diabetic effect in animal models, reduce intestinal transport of maltose in rats when combined with acarbose, and reduce absorption of free oleic acid in rats.
  • Despite the part used being the leaf, one common name of this species is miracle fruit, a name shared by two other species: Synsepalum dulcificum and Thaumatococcus daniellii. Both species are used to alter the perceived sweetness of foods.
  • In English the species is also known as gymnema, cowplant, and Australian cowplant.
  • This species also goes under many other names such as; Gurmari, Gurmarbooti, Gurmar, 
    periploca of the woods and Meshasringa. The Hindi word Gur-mar (Madhunaashini in Sanskrit, Chakkarakolli in Malayalam,Podapatri in Telugu), literally means sugar destroyer. Meshasringa (Sanskrit) translates as "ram's horn", a name given to the plant from the shape of its fruits.
  • Gymnema derives from the Greek words "gymnos" (γυμνὀς)
    and "nēma" (νῆμα) meaning "naked" and "thread" respectively, the species epitheton sylvestre means "of the forest" in Latin.
  • Gymnema Sylvestre leaf has been shown effective for weight loss because of it’s ability to curb sweet cravings and the effect it has on blocking sugar absorption.
