The Herb That Promotes Weight Loss and Busts Sugar-Cravings!

Sugar cravings got your tongue? If so, you’re not alone. The lure of Christmas cookies, holiday fudge loaded with squishy marshmallows, and other delectable desserts can be challenging to resist. Our ability to stay the course and say NO requires an unbelievable amount of willpower. But it doesn’t take very long before our vow of sweet celibacy becomes taxed and after just a few short days, we find ourselves beginning to slide down the slippery slope of compromise. Soon, the ability to resist is a thing of the past.

But fortunately, there’s a simple and easy way you can hack your sugar cravings to keep them under control during the holidays. And even better, you’ll be able to improve your blood sugar levels at the same time by including a simple herb known as Gymnema.

Not only does it change the way your taste buds perceive the chemical structure of sugar, but it actually changes the way your brain perceives the taste. And the result? That sweet deliciousness you thought you were going to enjoy now tastes flat, unappealing, and a little like cardboard. I know….not what you were expecting to hear, but it really works! 

Known as gurmar in Hindi, which means ‘sugar destroyer,’ Gymnema contains a particular group of compounds known as gymnemic acids. These unique molecules are not only responsible for their sweet-abolishing properties, but also contribute to its extremely positive effect on diabetes. Just a quick taste of a Gymnema tablet or liquid will make a believer out of you! It has a remarkable ability to anesthetize sweet taste buds, making sugar undetectable by the brain which is pretty remarkable!

Understandably, companies in Japan sell Gymnema as a weight loss supplement. Thought to work by reducing glucose absorption in the intestinal tract, it also decreases sugar cravings, making it doubly effective for weight loss. And when combined with milk thistle, ginseng, and goldenseal, Gymnema can help improve insulin resistance and other blood sugar dysregulations.

Another super cool feature of Gymnema is its effect on acne. Many cases of acne can be hormone-related, but may also occur due to an imbalance in the way the body manages insulin and regulates blood sugar.

The use of Gymnema can have a positive impact on cholesterol levels due to its ability to sequester cholesterol in the digestive tract, reducing absorption. And there is a clear correlation between excess sugar intake and elevated cholesterol, so it’s a win-win!

If you’re tired of fighting sugar cravings and over-indulging with sweets, stop by our office between now and Christmas and pick up a bottle of high-quality Gymnema. We’re sure you’ll LOVE the results and enjoy kicking those sugar cravings to the curb!

Patient Testimonials

Dr Don Sharnowski is a doctor who is above and beyond all other doctors! Probably his most outstanding quality is that he LISTENS to what his patients say. He is willing to explain things to his patients in terms they can understand. Dr Don treats his patients with wisdom, understanding, gentleness, care, encouragement and he is willing to "go the extra mile" to give his patients the proper treatment they need. He does not treat patients like they were on an assembly line or like he is rushing them out the door. Dr Don has fixed many of the problems I had at my first visit, one of which I had endured for 3 years. Dr Don was able to fix that problem in 2 weeks when others had not. Dr Don has also helped me loose 40 lbs so far. My total recovery is still an ongoing process, but should be a cinch with Dr Don's expert help! Thank you, Dr Don! You are an awesome answer to prayers!

Dr Don Sharnowski is truly an amazing Doctor. He listens to his patients and treats in a very complete way. He is very knowledgeable because he never stops learning. He is a great communicator and will help you learn better ways to be healthy if you will actually do what he teaches.

Don (Dr Sharnowski) is truly one of a kind. He is warm, inviting and incredibly generous with his time, but also really knowledgeable about the body and everything within. You won't find crystal balls here. You'll find a super nice guy in sneakers who also sells farm fresh eggs at the counter. I went in expecting to get adjusted (and was scared, because I'd never seen a chiro before). Instead, what I experienced was someone who actually sat down and listened to my history, connected the dots between several ailments (instead of jumping to prescribe one drug apiece to treat each one), and explained things that no one had ever taken the time to do. I was there about my back specifically, but we talked about my whole health. Instead of just prescribing an anti inflammatory (which is what my other doc did), he explained why we get inflammation in our bodies, and how to help reduce it with what we eat. I've also been on thyroid medication for over 10 years, and he actually explained what the thyroid is, and what the drug I take is, and what it does. But not in a defensive or overly crunchy way. He just openly explained in a way that I could understand it. I highly recommend Don to anyone with a body who wants to feel better. His approach is approachably holistic. Just common sense, whole body-centered treatment.
