How Gymnema Sylvestre in SUGAR AWAY™ Works
Recent pharmacological and clinical studies have shown that Gymnema Sylvestre acts on two sites:
→ First, the taste buds in the oral cavity;
→ Second, the absorptive surface to the intestines.
The structure of those taste buds which detect sugar in the mouth is similar to the structure of the tissue that absorbs sugar in the intestine. The important active ingredient in SUGAR AWAY™ is Gymnema Sylvestre an organic acid called “gymnemic acid.” The gymnemic acid is made up of molecules who seatom arrangement is similar to that of glucose molecules.
Those molecules fill the receptor locations on the taste buds for a period of one to two hours, thereby preventing the taste buds from being activated by any sugar molecules present in the food. Similarly, the glucose-like molecules in the gymnemic acid fill the receptor locations in the absorptive external layers of the tongue, thereby preventing the tongue from absorbing the sugar molecules.
