An organic blend of herbs and spices with a citrus taste, a perfect replacement for sweet treats!
Story, Folklore, History...
Gymnema sylvestere is the key ingredient in this blend, and it has long been used in Ayurvedic medicine. In Hindi, the word for gymnema is gurmar, meaning “sweet destroyer”.
Gymnema blocks the ability of your tounge to taste sweetness. It is used to lessen the cravings for sugar. It also helps to balance blood sugar levels.
Gymnema is used today for diabetes, metabolic syndrome, digestive stimulant, laxative, diuretic and for weight loss, as well as malaria and even a snake bite antidote!
Shanti Tea sells gymnema alone, but we also recommend that you try it as part of this delicious blend with other ingredients known to stimulate weight loss, improve blood sugar levels, and increase metabolism.
