Really helps to regulate blood sugar, best brand that I have found!Jul 02, 2011
I have been using gymnema to help control my blood sugar for about 2 years as I'm a Type 2 diabetic. By changing the way I eat to a "Traditional Diet" and taking Gymnema I have been able to reduce my diabetic prescriptions from 3 different medicines to only one. My HgbA1c have decreased from 8 to 6.2! I had been using Gymnema by Mediherb but when I needed to order more, I was having trouble finding it. Since I had run out and was getting higher readings, I decided to try a different brand but it seemed to have no effect with the blood sugar. So I tried another brand and it didn't work either. I then found Nutrigold Gymnena Gold and I have been very happy with this product. My blood sugar readings are better than with the Mediherb brand. I have been using the Nutrigold Gymnena for about 6 months and have been very happy with the results, my last HgbA1c was 5.8! I also like this product because it doesn't have any artificial ingredients, preservatives or fillers. There are no extra additives either such as soy or stearates. Fast shipping and very reasonable shipping cost!

great for precontestOct 12, 2011
By Anthony R. Langevin
I use Gymnema Sylvestra during the precontest phase while preparing for natural bodybuilding contests.It helps control the desire for sweets. Gymnema gold also seems to control blood sugar. This accompanied with a low carb diet and proper training program will help you attain a lean physique.
You must take this product with food especially the first time or you will become nauseous. This should be marked on the label.

It actually works!Oct 18, 2012
I was really skeptical of this product as I really don't believe that any time of appetite suppressant/diet pill works. But I have a major sweet tooth so I thought I would give it a try.
I do think, like with any of these supplements, the #1 key is will power. Nothing will work if you don't use a little will power but the Gymnema Gold helps keep that will power.
Is it a magic pill and I'm losing 10 lbs a week, no? But it is actually squelching my INSANE addiction to sugar? YES!
I cannot begin to explain how addicted to sugar I am. I am generally a very healthy person. I eat well (besides sugar). I work out 5-6 days a week (spin/run/crossfit) but I couldn't get my weight down to wear I wanted to be, all because I couldn't stop eating sugar.
I tried these pills and they really work. I don't crave sugar in the evening like I used to. I made cupcakes with my kids and I didn't even want to lick the frosting off my finger.
Did I use will power in these situations? Absolutely! But before this, I didn't have the ability to use my will power because the addiction was so strong!
Oh, I should add. THe directions say to take 1 a day. I've been taking one in the morning with my vitamins and another one at dinner time because my sugar cravings come in the evenings.
I'm really happy with this product and will continue to use it.

Making a positive differenceMay 31, 2013
By Sage Rowan
I was on diabetic meds for 2 years, after having an A1C of 9.8 at an annual physical. Last fall, after having made some positive lifestyle changes during the past 2 years, my A1C was 6.0, which my doctor said was now in the normal range. My doctor unexpectedly left the clinic later that fall, & I didn't know how to obtain refills, so I just stopped the med. In March of this year, my new doctor ordered labwork & my A1C was 6.4 (I have been off the med for about 4 months), & so he said I could remain off the med. I am glad to be off the prescription med (it had caused SEVERE constipation, bloating, gas, & feeling very tired), but I wanted to do whatever I could to support healthy blood glucose levels, so I did some research & ordered this product. Because most supplements say to take with food (the label on this product just said to take it 2-3 times a day), for the first couple of weeks on this product, I took it DURING a meal. I would often become a bit nauseous after the meal &, on several days, I had several-hour periods when I experienced multiple incidents of minor cramping & urgent elimination. Then I read some reviews on WebMD & people mentioned taking it BEFORE a meal (anywhere from an hour to a few minutes before eating). As soon as I started taking it BEFORE a meal, the nausea & bouts of urgent elimination stopped. After a week or so of taking it before a meal, I've noticed several changes - I don't seem to have cravings for sweets any longer & have actually begun to experience true HUNGER instead! Also, while I still eat some sweets, I realized it was out of habit or boredom, not a craving, & that the sweet doesn't seem to taste that good. I've also noticed that, sometimes at my habitual snacking times or when I was bored, I'd think about getting something to eat, but then realize I wasn't hungry & so chose not to eat anything. I haven't seen much difference in my fasting blood glucose level in the morning yet (it runs 140-160), but my post-meal or post-exercise readings are much lower, in the 100-130 range. I'm continuing to make lifestyle changes, plus experiencing the changes I've just described, so I'm hopeful that my fasting blood glucose readings will improve as well. I am now elminating regularly & normally, no longer experience the bloating or gas, & seem to be less tired & have more energy, so, all-in-all, I feel that this product is making a positive difference in my life. I'd recommend that the company who manufactures this product change the label to instruct users to take the product BEFORE a meal or snack.
