Info: 100 ml Tincture
Healthy blood glucose control is important for all individuals; however, it is particularly pertinent, and oftentimes more of a challenge, for individuals who are diabetic. St. Francis Herb Farm Gymnema Tincture is a natural option for those who are looking for more efficient glucose metabolism.
Although the Gymnema sylvestre plant has long been used as a natural remedy for centuries in traditional Ayurvedic medicine to relieve coughs and occasional constipation, supplemental forms are now gaining more popularity in modern society due to their positive effects on blood sugar levels. Known as the "destroyer of sugar", research indicates it contains compounds that decrease the absorption of sugar in the intestine, as well as increase the amount of insulin (the natural hormone that supports the uptake of glucose into cells) produced in the pancreas.
