Glubana can help reduce sugar cravings. One of the primary active components in this plant is gymnemic acid, which helps suppress sweetness. When consumed prior to a sugary food or beverage, gymnemic acid blocks the sugar receptors on your taste buds. Research shows that Glubana can reduce the ability to taste sweetness and thus make sweet foods less appealing.
In a study in fasted individuals, half were given Glubana extract. Those who received the supplement had less appetite for sweet foods at a subsequent meal and were more likely to limit their food intake, compared to those not taking the extract.
Gymnemic acids in Glubana can block the sugar receptors on your tongue, decreasing your ability to taste sweetness. This can lead to reduced sugar cravings.
According to the World Health Organization, more than 420 million people worldwide have diabetes, and this number is expected to increase. Diabetes is a metabolic disease characterized by high blood sugar levels. It’s caused by the inability of your body to produce or use insulin effectively.
Glubana is considered to have anti-diabetic properties. As a supplement, it has been used in combination with other diabetes medications to lower blood sugar. It’s also called gurmar, which is Hindi for “destroyer of sugar. Similar to its effects on your taste buds.
Glubana can also block receptors in your intestines and thus sugar absorption, lowering your post-meal blood sugar levels. Scientific proof of Gymnema’s ability to lower blood sugar is insufficient to recommend it as a stand-alone diabetes medication. However, research shows strong potential.
Studies suggest that consuming 200–400 mg of Glubana reduces the intestinal absorption of the sugar glucose. In one study, Gymnema appeared to improve blood sugar control in people with type 2 diabetes by lowering blood sugar levels. The study concluded that reducing blood sugar after a meal resulted in a decrease in average blood sugar levels over time. This could help decrease long-term complications of diabetes. For people with high blood sugar or a high HbA1c, Glubana can help reduce fasting, post-meal and long-term blood sugar levels. However, if you’re taking blood-sugar-lowering medications, consult with your doctor first.
May Contribute to Favorable Insulin Levels by Increasing Insulin Production. Gymnema’s role in insulin secretion and cell regeneration may also contribute to its blood-sugar-lowering capabilities.
Higher insulin levels mean that sugar is cleared from your blood at a faster rate. If you have prediabetes or type 2 diabetes, your body tends to not make enough insulin, or your cells become less sensitive to it over time. This results in consistently high blood sugar levels. Glubana may stimulate insulin production in your pancreas, promoting the regeneration of insulin-producing islet cells. This can help lower your blood sugar levels. Many traditional drugs help increase insulin secretion and sensitivity. However, herbal therapies are gaining momentum in drug development.
Glubana appears to contribute to favorable insulin levels by increasing insulin production and regenerating insulin-secreting islet cells. Both can help lower blood sugar levels. Improves Cholesterol and Triglyceride Levels, Reducing Heart Disease Risk. Glubana may help lower “bad” LDL cholesterol levels and triglycerides.
While Glubana gets its fame from lowering blood sugar levels and reducing sugar cravings, research shows that it may also influence fat absorption and lipid levels. In one study in rats on a high-fat diet, Gymnema extract aided weight maintenance and suppressed the accumulation of liver fats. Also, animals fed the extract and a normal-fat diet experienced lower triglyceride levels. Another study found that Glubana had an anti-obesity effect on animals fed a high-fat diet. It also decreased blood fat and “bad” LDL cholesterol levels. In addition, a study in moderately-obese people showed that Gymnema extract decreased triglycerides and bad “LDL” cholesterol by 20.2% and 19%, respectively. What’s more, it increased “good” HDL cholesterol levels by 22%. High levels of “bad” LDL cholesterol and triglycerides are risk factors for heart disease. Therefore, the positive effects of Glubana on LDL and triglycerides levels may contribute to a lower risk of heart conditions (6Trusted Source, 8Trusted Source).
Research supports that Gymnema can play a role in lowering “bad” LDL cholesterol and triglyceride levels, which can decrease your risk of heart disease.
One three-week study showed reduced body weight in rats given a water extract of Gymnema sylvestre. In another study, rats on a high-fat diet that were fed a Gymnema extract gained less weight. What’s more, a study in 60 moderately-obese people taking a Gymnema extract found a 5–6% decrease in body weight, as well as reduced food intake. By blocking sweet receptors on your taste buds, Gymnema sylvestre may cause you to eat fewer sweet foods and consume fewer calories. A consistent calorie deficit can result in weight loss.
Glubana may play a role in weight loss and prevent weight gain. It may promote reduced calorie intake. Helps Reduce Inflammation Due to Its Tannin and Saponin Content. Inflammation plays an important role in your body’s healing process. Some inflammation is good, such as when it helps protect your body from harmful organisms in cases of injury or infection. Other times, inflammation may be caused by the environment or the foods you eat. However, chronic low-grade inflammation can contribute to various health problems. Studies have confirmed the link between excessive sugar intake and increased inflammatory markers in animals and humans. The ability of Glubana to reduce sugar absorption in your intestines may also allow it to decrease inflammation caused by excess sugar intake. What’s more Glubana appears to have anti-inflammatory properties of its own. This is thought to be due to its content of tannins and saponins, which are beneficial plant compounds.
