48 vegetable capsules of organic shardunika (gymnema sylvestre).
Shardunika is widely respected to help balance glucose levels and to support the pancreas. Placing a little shardunika on the tongue can dull the taste buds to the sweet taste. This can be helpful to people who crave sweets to their detriment. It promotes the healthy production of insulin and supports the body's natural metabolic process. Do not use during pregnancy. This herb is helpful for those with hyperglycemia, but not recommended for those with hypoglycemia.
Shardunika also contains saponins that temporarily destroy the ability to perceive the sweet taste, and in addition has glycosides that inhibit glucose absorption. Shardunika is beneficial for all three doshas although in massive doses it could stimulate pitta due to heating virya. Various studies have demonstrated that persons with type II diabetes can permanently get off many of their antihyperglycemic drugs and also get off the Shardunika too, after some time. In other words, the effect is curative rather than palliative.
Ayurveda recommends taking Shardunika with Kalmegh (which cleanses the liver) to recover from alcoholism.
Used for at least 6,000 years in the Ayurvedic system; current research supports its traditional use. Here are links to those studies.
