Gymnema vs Insulin?

Are there certain herbs and vitamins that can help treat diabetics higher than normal levels of glucose—or reduce high sugar in the blood? Better yet, are certain vitamins and plants such as dandelion and gymnema more beneficial, safer and less damaging to the human body than long-term insulin injections?

Gymnema Sylvestre is one such vitamin or herb that keeps surfacing as a possible alternative to help reduce the amount of Type 1 and Type 2 diabetic injections. Gymnema is a herb that has properties that can help reduce blood sugar levels. Gymnema may also help diabetics to regenerate previously destroyed pancreas cells—until recently, this was thought of as being impossible in most medical circles here in the US.

Origin of Gymnema
The Gymnema plant grows in several asian countries. All segments of the plant have been utilized—the leaf and root over centuries for medicinal purposes.

Research and Testing
Recent research here in the US, involving several clinical testing has been conducted on Gymnema with promising results. Fasting blood sugar levels were reduced by an average of nearly thirty-percent.

How the Gymnema Herb Works
Gymnema helps by blocking the assimilation of sugar molecules. It does this very efficiently and prevent nearly fifty-percent of sugar from entering the blood stream.

Safety and Side Effects
A one year study using Gymnema on rats confirmed that the rats suffered no side effects—this is opposite of animal insulin injections where tests conducted on rodents yielded both weight gain and diabetes in that particular group of lab rats. Other recent testing of the herb used prescribed amounts on humans; Gymnema has proven void of side effects in those tests as well.

How to Use Gymnema
It can be taken in tablet form or chewed as a leaf. Tablets provide a more exact control of dosage–400mg is average. It can be used to help lower blood sugar. It may or may not be substituted as a 100% replacement of insulin injections. However, insulin dosage may also need to be reduced if you start taking Gymnema—always find a good qualified and dedicated physician to help with your natural health program. Gymnema is only one option in a more holistic diabetes and diet program.
