Gudmar/गुड़मार: Gudmar was initially known as meshashringi in Sanskrit, which means “ram’s horn”. The plant can be described as a large, pubescent, woody climber.
Gudmar has a long history of use in herbal medicine and a broad range of therapeutic properties. It blocks sweet taste sensations
Its leaves contain triterpenoid saponins, flavonols, and gurmarin. The major biologically active plant molecules are gymnemic acids, a class of triterpenoid saponins, which have the effect of suppressing the taste of sweetness on the tongue from sucrose (sugar), stevia, xylitol, and artificial sweeteners such as aspartame.
The sweet-blocking effect of Gudmar lasts from 15 to 50 minutes and may even persist for several hours. Gymnemic acids apparently have no long-term effects on taste and they do not influence bitter, salty, or sour taste perception.
Its leaves are elliptic, opposite or ovate. The small flowers are yellow and in umbellate cymes. The follicles are terete, lanceolate and up to 3 inches in length. The plant is native to the tropical forests of southern and central India. It is known as gurmar and merasingi in Hindi and meshashringi, vishani and madhunashini in Sanskrit. The medicinally active parts of the plant are the leaves and the roots. It came to be known as “destroyer of sugar” in ancient times.
The ancient Sanskrit name denotes “ Sugar Destroyer” which translates to various native languages. Human and animal studies confirm that Gymnema has pronounced effects on blood sugar, at least among diabetics. Within the past few decades researchers have determined that Gymnema extracts play a role in the treatment of Type 1 diabetics, who typically need daily injections of insulin to control the disease.
