Indian Plant Helps Maintain Blood Sugar and Cholesterol Balanced

The extract of an Indian plant called Gymnema sylvestre helps maintain blood sugar and cholesterol at normal levels.

The new extract, OmSanA, is a concentrated form of Om Santal Adivasi (OSA), the active compound found in the G. sylvestre leaf. The extract is offered in vegetarian capsule form and helps maintain normal blood sugar levels and normal cholesterol levels naturally. According to clinical studies, results are achieved in as little as 30 days; no side effects have been reported to date at normal daily dosages (500 mg -750 mg). The active ingredient of G. Sylvestre is a gymnemic acid, which is composed of molecules with a similar structure to that of glucose. The molecules attach to glucose receptor sites on the taste buds for a period of one to two hours, thereby preventing them from being activated by any sugar molecules present in the food. Similarly, the glucose-like molecules in gymnemic acid block the receptor locations in the absorptive external layers of the intestine, thereby preventing the intestine from absorbing the sugar molecules. OmSanA is a product of Ayurvedic-Life International (Neenah, WI, USA).

"OmSanA is the perfect balance of nature and science. My invention of the Ayurvedic virgin isolate technology, OSA, allowed our all-natural proprietary Gymnema sylvestre extract product, OmSanA, to be coupled with scientific cellular level endocrine research and human clinical trials to bring a truly unique health solution to millions of people worldwide,” said Arun Chatterji, Ph.D., the inventor of OmSanA and chairman and CEO of Ayurvedic-Life International.

G. sylvestre, a member of the Milkweed family, is a is a large climber herb that is native to the tropical forests of southern and central India, and has been used as a natural folk medicine for maintaining optimal health since 6000 BCE. Several tribes, including the Santals in east-central India, have used the leaves as a naturopathic treatment for diabetes for nearly two millennia. The leaves, when chewed, interfere with the sensation of sweet taste, which is the origin of the plant's Hindi name, Gurmar, which means "destructor of sugar.”
