Gymnema Products

Belonging to the rich holistic tradition of Indian Ayurvedic medicine, Gymnema has been used for thousands of years for its many and varied benefits to health. Indigo Herbs Organic Gymnema Powder is an easy way to access this ancient healing herb. Alternatively you can choose Gymnema Capsules from our guest brands. 

This fascinating plant is called 'Meshashringi' in Sanskrit meaning 'rams horn' and 'Gurmur' meaning 'Sugar Destroyer' and has many traditional uses throughout India. One of the amazing attributes of Gymnema Sylvestre is its ability to neutralise the sensation and taste of sweetness. Even by chewing a few leaves gymnemic acids are released that can suppress sweetness for about 15 minutes. Other traditional Ayurvedic remedies regarding Gymnema Sylvestre are stomach upsets, a remedy for snake bite and controlling blood sugar levels.

Gymnema Sylvestre comes from the Asclipiadaceae milk weed family and likes to climb against other plants and objects to raise itself up. Having woody stems this plant blooms little white balls that open into flowers. The plant also fruits an elongated light green seed pod.

Using Herbal and Superfood powders on a daily basis is simple, easy and can be really delicious. The simplest way is to rehydrate the powder in a little filtered water to make a shot, this can easily be prepared once, twice or three times per day if you are taking the herbs therapeutically. However sometimes the herbs can be bitter so the botanical powders can be added to a superfood smoothie instead of just water. The smoothie can be made with a base of nut milk, seed milk or non-dairy milk such as rice milk. Alternatively the main body of the smoothie can be created with fruit or vegetable juices. 

Additional superfood and herb powders can be added to fortify the smoothie with extra beneficial properties. The powders are largely dissolvable and can be scooped in and then blended, shaken or stirred until fully mixed with the liquid. Any true Superfood smoothie disciple would advise that the list of possibilities is endless with the goal to feel great and potentially replace a meal with this glass of super goodness. For full instructions go to our How to take Herbal Powders page.

Another option is to use a Capsule Machine that can be bought from the Indigo Herbs website. Filling capsules with your favourite herb has never been easier when you buy a Capsule machine. You can then be sure that the capsules you are taking are 100% pure ingredients without fillers added by some companies.

This herbal powder can be re-hydrated in water or fruit juice, it can be encapsulated or added to a herbal powder blend. Please consult the Herbal Materia Medica or Medical Herbalist for this botanical ingredients uses.
