Description Usage Supplement Facts For nearly two thousand years‚ an herbal extract called Gymnema sylvestre has been used in India. It is a woody climbing plant that may support healthy digestion by producing digestive juices that enter the small intestine.* Gymnema Sylvestre by Pure Encapsulations is a convenient supplement that provides gymnemic acids. Gymnemic acids are the active compounds‚ which promote the healthy functioning of pancreatic cells. The pancreas is an endocrine gland in the digestive system near the abdomen that is responsible for secreting digestive enzymes in order to break down the proteins‚ fats‚ and carbohydrates you eat. In addition‚ it helps neutralize stomach acids.* This herb also promotes enzymatic activity that supports glucose uptake into the intestines. As a result‚ that glucose can enter your blood stream and provide the energy you need in order to function. It also plays a role in the metabolism of lipids and triglycerides. Finally‚ it secretes essential hormones like glucagon and insulin.* *These statements have not been evaluated by the Food and Drug Administration.
