Main functional ingredient:
Gymnema Silvestre.GYMNEMA: it is a creeping bush growing spontaneous in tropical countries of Asia and Africa.
The active principle of Gymnema carries out an hypoglycemic action through two main mechanisms:
1) inhibition of sugar absorption at intestinal level
2) increased metabolic transformation of glucose at cellular level.
It is traditionally used for its hypoglycemic properties. Recent studies made in Japan demonstrated that the active principle of Gymnema has a molecule similar to sugar's, but larger, that blocks sugar absorption quickly.
