The ancient texts of Ayurveda which first identified Gymnema called it Gurmar or Sugar Destroyer. This time-tested plant has been used for thousands of years to support digestion and normal kidney function.* Research has shown Gymnema’s unique plant chemistry supports the metabolism of refined carbohydrates in both the digestive system and the pancreas.* Used as a part of a healthy diet, Gymnema supports blood sugar balance already within the normal range.*
Yes. Chew a caplet, swish it around and spit it out. Now eat something sweet. No sugar taste!
There’s Gymnema in GlucoCare and LeanCare too. Which one should I take? Which one is more effective?
There are benefits to both; the simplicity of a single herb or the synergy of a blended formula. Even among our own staff, some prefer one, some prefer the other. All Himalaya products are rigorously studied for purity, safety and efficacy, so the choice between a single herb or a formula is all yours.
20 minutes is a good rule of thumb.
We can only recommend the dose on the bottle, which is our clinically-studied effective dose. Taking more or less of an herbal supplement than recommended should be discussed with your health care provider.
Can I take this product along with my prescription medication or my other supplements? Can I combine them? Will there be side effects?
Our product has not been studied alongside or against your prescription medication or alongside other supplements. We would be unable to answer that question. Please make sure your health care provider is aware of all the herbal supplements you are taking.
Regulations enacted by the United States Food and Drug Administration say that sellers of dietary supplements can’t make any claims about their products that suggest the treatment, diagnosis, prevention, or mitigation of disease. This is called the Dietary Supplement Health and Education Act (DSHEA) of 1994. Because your question suggests you are trying to treat a condition and find relief from symptoms, any answer to that regard would fall outside of the legal boundaries that regulate our industry. What we can say is that our products are formulated to support the normal function of organ systems and are rigorously studied for purity, safety and efficacy.
We don’t recommend any herbal product, ours or anyone else’s, to pregnant or nursing moms. If you’re pregnant or nursing, any supplement you take should first be cleared with your health care provider.
