Diabe-Tea Diabetes Gymnema Bitter Melon Herbal Tea 3oz; makes 40 cups

Gymnema sylvestre is a herb native to the tropical forests of southern and central India where it has been used as a natural treatment for diabetes for nearly 2,000 years. Gymnema helps raise the level of insulin in the blood, helping the body control blood sugar. Gymnema reduces the taste of sugar when it is placed in the mouth, thus some use it to fight sugar cravings; this effect lasts up to about two hours. Bitter melon is a natural plant that helps make insulin receptors on cells more sensitive to the effects of insulin that is present in the system. Together these two traditional herbs can help lower blood sugar and possibly reduce the amount of medications that someone with type 2 diabetes might need to take. Let you doctor know if you use this regularly, as it can cause low blood sugar episodes if you do not make appropriate adjustments in your overall treatment program.
