This premium Cascara Sagrada bark has been naturally aged to eliminate constituents which may cause irritation.

Cascara sagrada has a long history of traditional use by the Native Americans, Spanish and Mexican priests since the 1800s. Cascara contains anthraquinones, which are responsible for its laxative effects. In Spanish, Cascara sagrada means "sacred bark," perhaps because of its effectiveness.

This organic Garlic supplement is carefully processed to retain many of the important compounds that are naturally found in raw Garlic.

An Egyptian medical text dating back to 1,500 BC, documents the use of Garlic for hypertension, worms, and tumors. Well preserved cloves of Garlic were found in the tomb of King Tutankhamen. Since then, it has been revered by many cultures throughout the world. Currently, Garlic is one of the most widely used herbal compounds in the United States, with ongoing research in several areas related to cardiovascular health, oncology and infectious disease (which is still preliminary and not yet clinically proven).

The sulfur compounds are especially important, and have been the focus of many clinical trials suggesting their use in supporting cardiovascular health. Its mechanism of action appears to be related to multiple sulfur compounds and not only to allicin as was previously believed. The sulfur compounds are indicated in this product by the natural Garlic odor. No fillers or masking agents have been added.


Warnings & Disclaimers:
Use cautiously in individuals with bleeding disorders, or who are taking anticoagulant medications, due to an increased risk of bleeding. Individuals with acute or chronic stomach inflammation should use with caution. Use Garlic products with caution if pregnant or nursing. Keep out of reach of children. Discontinue if unusual symptoms occur. Do not exceed recommended dose unless under the guidance of a health care professional.

This formula is a unique combination of certified organic herbs, B complex vitamins and a patented amino acid which promote a healthy response to stress. This product is made with herbs that are organically cultivated in the USA to provide the highest quality herbs available.

Acute stress is a physiological response, also known as the "fight or flight" response, that allows us cope with extreme situations. Once necessary for survival the adrenaline, and other chemicals produced by the body during stressful situations, can become an evolutionary disadvantage in our modern, stressful environment. Frequent physical reactions to stress ultimately take a toll on the body, and will eventually serve as a catalyst to the deterioration of our health.

Adaptogens (Ashwagandha, Licorice and Holy Basil) help restore balance to this response by:
Increasing ability of the body to cope more EFFECTIVELY with stress.
Altering the release of stress hormones in the body, therefore modifying the body's reaction to stress.
Regulating the use of the stress hormone, cortisol, allowing the body to maintain a healthy response to stress.

Many people feel the physical effects of stress. Modern lifestyle, exposure to pathogens (germs), and environmental toxins all disturb our bodies' ability to cope, both physically and emotionally. Thankfully, STRESS-GUARDTM contains clinically proven ingredients which can protect us from the effects of stress in three unique ways:
Organic blend of adaptogen herbs - such as Holy basil, Ashwagandha and Licorice- all reduce reaction to stress and restore balance of the inter-connected hormonal, immune and nervous systems.
L-Theanine and organic Skullcap assist in relaxation and reduce anxious feelings without causing drowsiness.
B-vitamins support brain function and energy systems.
For a calmer, happier you.

The adaptogens used in this formula all share these properties, but each has unique properties that are especially useful in times of stress.

Ashwagandha is a traditional Ayurvedic (Indian) herb used for calming the mind and promoting regular sleep patterns.
A study published by the University of Texas showed that Ashwagandha root stimulates GABA-like activity. GABA (Gamma Amino-butyric acid) works by inhibiting the over-activity of nerve cells. This helps to induce sleep, uplift mood, and reduce anxiety. Ashwagandha use supports immune function and maintains healthy blood sugar levels (already within a normal range) which are body systems which may be compromised during stress.

Licorice supports a healthy stress response because it slows the conversion of cortisol to cortisone, which increases and prolongs the action of this steroid hormone produced by the adrenal glands. This helps the adrenal glands to function effectively, especially important when the body is experiencing chronic stress. Licorice also supports the immune function which is compromised during an acute stress response.

Holy Basil has been extensively used for its medicinal values by a number of cultures. In India, Holy Basil is referred to as Tulsi (meaning "incomparable one"). In addition to its stress reducing properties, higher doses of Holy Basil also maintains healthy blood sugar levels (that are already within a normal range) - a function which may be compromised during stressful episodes.

Native to both, North America and Europe, Skullcap was used historically as documented in the British Herbal Pharmacopeia (BHP) and in the Eclectic manuals. This herb has a solid reputation in Europe, where it is commonly used as a relaxing nervine (a nervine is an herb that has an effect on the central nervous system). Note: Skullcap (Scutellaria lateriflora) should not be confused with Baikal skullcap (Scutellaria barbata), which has quite different biological activity.

Suntheanine; L-Theanine is the amino acid that imparts a sweet taste in Green Tea. It is the compound that creates a calming effect and negates the caffeine effect that is rarely experienced when green tea is consumed. Suntheanine is a registered trademark of Taiyo International Inc. It is the only L-Theanine available that has proven clinical use and safety.

The vital B-vitamins support brain function and energy systems.

The whole organic Chaste Tree berry is milled immediately prior to encapsulation to retain the natural constituents present in this herb including flavonoids, iridoid glycosides and terpenoids.

Chaste Tree is grown in Mediterranean countries and central Asia. Its dried fruit has a pepper-like aroma and flavor, and has been used in many traditional preparations to support female reproductive hormones. The Ancient Greeks reported Chaste Tree berry helpful in supporting female hormonal balance. The Greek physician Hippocrates (460-377 B.C.) wrote, "If blood flows from the womb, let the woman drink dark wine in which the leaves of the Chaste Tree have been steeped."

Chaste Tree berry is now the subject of several clinical trials. Preliminary results are supporting traditional use. In Germany, Chaste Tree is considered safe, effective, and economical. It is accepted by, and widely used by, gynecologists.

Organic Chaste Tree contains several different constituents, including flavonoids, iridoid glycosides, and terpenoids. The whole fruit, rather than any one of its individual constituents, appears to be necessary for the medicinal activity.


Warnings & Disclaimers:
Individuals taking hormone preparations (e.g. estrogen, progesterone) should consult their health care professional before use. Do not use if pregnant or nursing.  Keep out of reach of children.

The gentle freeze-drying technique used preserves the natural constituents present in our organic Cranberries to resemble the form used in clinical studies.

Cranberry, a small evergreen shrub, grows in damp bogs from Alaska to Oregon, and on the eastern coastline. Cranberries have been consumed for their tangy, refreshing taste, and naturally contain minerals and the antioxidant vitamins A and C. They are rich in antioxidant flavonoids (anthocyanidins) to protect your body from free radicals. Historically, Native Americans used Cranberries as food and for health benefits, and in the early 1800's German scientists began researching its effect on urinary tract function.

Freeze-drying these berries helps to maintain and preserve the valuable constituents found in the fresh berries.

This certified organic Dandelion root is grown in North America, where the roots are freshly dug prior to manufacture to preserve the beneficial constituents.

This gentle and effective herb is valued in many cultures. It is classified as a bitter, or an herbs that has been used traditionally to improve appetite and support normal digestion.

In the folk medicine of many countries, Dandelion root is regarded as a liver tonic. Preliminary studies suggest that Dandelion root stimulates the liver to increase bile flow. Once bile is released by the liver, its two main functions are to carry away waste and to break down fats during digestion. It remains to be proven what physiological function this has in the body.


Warnings & Disclaimers:
Do not take Dandelion supplements if diagnosed with inflammation of the gallbladder or bile duct obstruction. Not recommended for use while pregnant or nursing until further research verifies no contraindications. Keep out of reach of children. Discontinue if unusual symptoms occur. Do not exceed recommended dose unless under the guidance of a health care professional.
Individuals sensitive to plants in the Daisy family (sesquiterpene lactone-containing plants) should use all Dandelion supplements with caution.

Premium organic Eleuthero is used in this product.
Eleuthero is recognized as being a gentle alternative to Panax Ginseng. Eleuthero is used during times of stress and is especially notable as an immune tonic in the middle aged and elderly.

Eleuthero was the first herb to be classified as an adaptogen by Russian scientists and was therefore, the model for all future research on this group of herbs. An adaptogen is a substance that helps the body adapt to various types of stress. In order to achieve this status a plant must meet the following criteria:
It must be safe.
It must also have a broad-spectrum, normalizing action that brings an organism back to homeostasis.
It must produce a nonspecific response in the body.

In the late 60's and 70's multiple studies of this herb were conducted in healthy people and Eleuthero was found to increase the ability of subjects to withstand stress (from heat, noise, exercise and increase in workload). Subjects also experienced increases in mental alertness and work output. As a result of this research, Eleuthero was being used by Russian athletes and astronauts to prepare them for their events.

Eleuthero contains a group of constituents known as eleutherosides it also contains triterpenoid sapponins, and glycans, and many others. Modern science has not proven either exactly how eleuthero works or the relevance of each of its various constituents. Most likely it is a combination of many of the constituents, and is therefore best to take the whole herb.

The extract is normally standardized to 0.8% eleutherosides B and E, and is normally taken at doses between 100-200 mg per day.  The standardized extract is a ten-fold concentrate of the whole herb that we sell.  The dose for the organic whole herb is 1000-2000 mg per day (or 1-2 grams).  The German Commission E and the British Herbal Pharmocopeia both recommend 2-3 grams per day for a variety of uses.  


Warnings & Disclaimers:
Not recommended for long-term use without periodic breaks.  Not recommended for use during pregnancy or while nursing, until further research verifies no contraindications.  Keep out of reach of children. Discontinue if unusual symptoms occur. Do not exceed recommended dose unless under the guidance of a health care professional.

This organic Hawthorn supplement contains the leaves, flowers, and berries of organic Hawthorn, which contain a variety of bioflavonoids; potent antioxidants that appear to be primarily responsible for the cardiac actions of the plant.

Hawthorn has been used for a millennia as both a food and a medicine. The current use of Hawthorn for heart support dates back to the 17th century, where an Irish doctor was known to have secretly used it for the heart. After his death in 1894, his daughter revealed the famous cure to be a tincture of the ripe berries. Hawthorn had a brief period of use in the American clinical practice between the turn of the century and the 1930's. Initially, Hawthorn berries were the principal part used medicinally, but currently it is believed that the flowers and leaves are also beneficial.

Despite the emerging studies, researchers have not been able to attribute its use to one specific constituent marker. In fact, there are a couple of different markers available in standardized extracts commercially. We believe that the whole herb contains many constituents that work together - as nature intended.


Warnings & Disclaimers:
Before taking Hawthorn consult with a health care professional if taking prescribed cardiac glycosides or blood pressure medicines.  Not recommended for use during pregnancy or while nursing, until further research verifies no contraindications. Keep out of reach of children.  Discontinue if unusual symptoms occur. Do not exceed recommended dose unless under the guidance of a health care professional.

This organic blend of the two most popular Echinacea species (Echinacea purpurea and Echinacea angustifolia) is carefully grown on our certified organic farm. The herbs are harvested when they are most potent, and processed immediately to retain their beneficial constituents.

Echinacea was used by many Native American populations throughout the United States. This widespread use was adopted by the Eclectic physicians in the U.S. and its use was documented in medical texts until 1947. A German pharmaceutical manufacturer imported Echinacea purpurea to Germany in the 1930's, and since then, German and American scientists have been researching the clinical usefulness of the herb with an emphasis on supporting the immune system. This herb is popular both in Europe and in the US.

Since the era of the Eclectics, herbalists have known that all good quality Echinacea products cause a mild tingling sensation in the mouth. This is due to the alkylamides, which are recognized for their biological effect on the immune system.

As a result of many clinical trials that were done in the 1990's, Echinacea sales account for approximately 10% of the dietary supplement market. Many clinical trials are still being conducted today.


Warnings & Disclaimers:
Nutritional supplements containing Echinacea should be used with caution in individuals with autoimmune diseases.  Avoid use during nursing and use for no more than 1 week at a time during pregnancy until further research verifies no contraindications. Keep out of reach of children.  Discontinue if unusual symptoms occur. Do not exceed recommended dose unless under the guidance of a health care professional.

Freshly milled organic Ginkgo leaf is combined with a standardized Ginkgo extract containing 24% flavone glycosides and 6% terpene lactones.

Ginkgo biloba is the world's oldest living species of tree, dating back more than 200 million years. Individual trees live as long as 1,000 years. It is now commonly planted in the cities of Europe, Japan, Southeast Asia, and the United States because of its hardiness and resistance to infection and pollution.

Although the medicinal use of the seed originates from China nearly 5,000 years ago, it was not until the 20th century that the leaves of the tree were used in European herbal medicine. Many of Ginkgo's current uses originate from research and clinical observations during the 1950's in Europe. In France and Germany, it is one of the most popular prescribed medicines.

In the United States, Ginkgo is one of the top-selling herbal supplements. This popularity can be attributed to large number of successful clinical studies that have been published. The Federal Government's Complementary and Alternative Medicine (CAM) research program is currently funding several studies featuring this herb.

These capsules supply the scientifically validated dosage of extract (60 mg extracted to supply 24% flavone glycosides and 6% terpene lactones). This is supported by the addition of pure unadulterated Ginkgo leaf. The whole leaf has hundreds of compounds and flavonoids related to the flavone glycosides, which have yet to be studied.


Warnings & Disclaimers:
Individuals taking anticoagulant medication should consult with their health care professional before taking supplements containing Ginkgo. Discontinue use two weeks prior to scheduled surgery or dental procedures, and inform surgeon.  Although rare, some people may experience headaches or mild gastrointestinal discomfort when taking Ginkgo.  Do not take if pregnant or nursing. Keep out of reach of children. Discontinue use if unusual symptoms occur.  Do not exceed recommended dose unless under the guidance of a health care professional.

Our organic Goldenseal is harvested at its peak potency from the fertile volcanic soils of our certified organic farm.

Goldenseal is another popular herb among the Native Americans that evolved to become an official herbal remedy in the United States Pharmacopeia. It has traditionally been referred to as "King of the Mucous Membranes," as it was known to help regulate secretions of the mucous membranes.

Goldenseal contains powerful alkaloids, giving it the distinctive yellow-gold color. Presently, this herb is one of the five top-selling herbal products in the United States.

Organic cultivation of this important plant is necessary to preserve diminishing wild stocks, in short supply from many years of over-harvesting. Our organic Goldenseal is from our certified organic farm and the rhizomes and roots are freshly harvested, dried, milled and promptly encapsulated.


Warnings & Disclaimers:
Do not take Goldenseal supplements if pregnant or nursing. Keep out of reach of children. Discontinue if unusual symptoms occur. Do not exceed recommended dose unless under the guidance of a health care professional.

This herb is cultivated organically in the USA and meets all the stringent quality criteria that Oregon's Wild Harvest demands in all its products.

Also known as "Tulsi," or the "incomparable one," in Ayurvedic medicine, Holy Basil has been traditionally recognized as an herb known to have an effect upon the mind, body, and spirit. It is so highly regarded in Indian culture that it is commonly kept in each household just for "good luck". Tulsi is a relative of the Sweet Basil we use in cooking, but it has different properties. It is often consumed as a very tasty and healthful tea. The properties of this herb have been studied and the research is only just beginning to uncover all the amazing compounds and properties of this revered herb.??As an impressive adaptogenic tonic, Holy Basil protects the body from the negative effects of daily stress and aging by maintaining the intricate balance of our nervous, endocrine, and immune systems. The balance of these systems is important in the maintenance of a normal inflammation response.


Warnings & Disclaimers:

This whole root has not been processed to remove glycyrrhizic acid. When glycyrrhizin is removed from Licorice, the product is called deglycyrrhizinated licorice or DGL.

Licorice root has been used since ancient times, across many cultures as food and as medicine. In Chinese medicine, Licorice is an ingredient in nearly all herbal formulas for the traditional purpose of "harmonizing" the separate herbs involved. This important tonic herb is often called 'the grandfather of herbs'.

Chinese Medical practitioners believe that Licorice is such a good harmonizing herb because it protects the body from the effect of some of the stronger herbs that may be added in some Chinese herbal formulas. It does this by protecting the liver cells from free-radical damage. By doing so it also augments the liver's ability to process toxins.


Warnings & Disclaimers:
If consuming the suggested dose on a daily basis, it is recommended to take for six weeks and then discontinue use for three weeks before resuming normal use.
Use with caution if you have been diagnosed with congestive heart failure, coronary heart disease, kidney or liver disease, fluid retention (edema), underlying electrolyte disturbances, hormonal abnormalities, or if you are taking diuretics or heart medications, specifically Digitalis or Digoxin. Do not use if you have high blood pressure or hypokalemia (low potassium). Not recommended for long term use. Keep out of reach of children. Do not use if pregnant.

Maca has been cultivated since pre-Incan times. This nutritious root is prized by indigenous peoples for its health-giving properties. It is an adaptogen, a substance which helps to promote endurance and vitality.

Maca has been cultivated since pre-Incan times in the inhospitable higher elevations of the Andes, where it is the only food source that will grow. This nutritious root is prized by indigenous peoples for its health-giving properties and has been critical for their survival. Soon after the Conquest, the Spanish found that their livestock were reproducing poorly in the highlands, and the Indigenous people recommended Maca. The results were so remarkable there are existing records from 200 years ago which indicate that in one area alone 9 tons of Maca was purchased.

Many researchers and authors describe its adaptogenic properties. Traditionally, Maca has also been used to relieve stress, as an aphrodisiac, and for fertility enhancement in both males and females. Recently, commercial Maca products have gained popularity in areas outside of South America, especially in Europe.

Nettle is traditionally used for providing relief from allergies, and for use as a nutritive tonic.

As an home herbal remedy, Nettles have a long history of use. A tea made from the leaves has traditionally been used as a tonic.

Our freshly gathered Nettle are promptly freeze-dried to preserve the full spectrum of chemical activity within the herb. The active ingredient in Nettle is unknown, and it may be that it is a combination of ingredients rather than one single compound which may be responsible for its activity.

Due to our high quality control standards we use only organically cultivated plants from an approved site rather than wild-crafted plants as studies show that Nettle absorbs undesirable heavy metals as well as the beneficial minerals from the soil.

Why do we use Freeze-Dried Nettle?

Freeze-dried Nettle is the form that was used in a well-respected study conducted by the National College of Naturopathic Medicine in Portland, Oregon.
The dosage used for the research conducted by NCNM is exactly the same as the recommended dosage of OWH Nettles or Aller-Aid.
Our product is dried using the same drying technique that was used in the clinical trial above. The histamine, serotonin and the acetylcholine that is concentrated in the Nettle stinging hairs is lost in air-dried Nettle, but not in freeze-dried Nettle.

Why do we use the whole herb instead of a standardized extract?

The active ingredient in Nettle is unknown, and it may be that it is a combination of ingredients rather than one single compound which may be responsible for its activity.
This is an emerging trend we are seeing among the recent research in many different herbs. There are over 100 constituents that have been isolated from the Nettle plant.

Why do we use organic Nettle instead of wild-crafted?

After monitoring and observing the heavy metal levels we decided that the organically cultivated material was of much higher quality. Nettles are well known for absorbing all minerals from its soil. Unfortunately it also absorbs metals, such as lead, from the soil. In fact, one published study shows the use of Nettles as a biomarker to monitor lead in soil that is known to be contaminated.
Another study illustrates the effect that the growth environment has upon lead levels. They found that Nettle harvested from the mountains was 5x lower in lead than the Nettle harvested from a railway station, and was 7x lower than the plants grown near the side of a highway.
Using this knowledge we made the decision to hand-harvest our Nettles from a local organic farm. This way we can be assured that the quality meets our high standards.

How does the liquid compare to the Freeze-Dried capsule?

The serotonin is known to be destroyed in the liquid extract due to enzyme activity. The liquid extract has many uses but may not be as useful for seasonal allergies.

The early 20th century American physicians (Eclectics) prized Red Clover as an excellent alterative. Alteratives, known in folk medicine as "blood cleansers," were seen as herbs that assisted organs in the removal of metabolic waste and toxins from the circulatory system. This valuable herb was the main ingredient in several traditional formulas such as the Hoxey Formula and the Trifolium Compound. More recent studies indicate that Red Clover has phytoestrogenic properties, and it is currently being investigated for menopausal symptom relief. Holistic practitioners believe that phytoestrogens in plants help to normalize estrogen levels by their weak estrogen-mimicking ability. This activity is under investigation.


Warnings & Disclaimers:
Caution should be taken in patients on hormone replacement therapy (HRT) or oral contraceptives. Until more information is available, women with estrogen-dependent tumors such as breast cancer should avoid using Red Clover. Keep out of reach of children. Do not use if pregnant or nursing. Discontinue if unusual symptoms occur. Do not exceed recommended dose unless under the guidance of a health care professional.

The Slippery Elm is native to eastern Canada, and the eastern and central United States, where it is found mostly in the Appalachian Mountains. Its name refers to the soothing slippery consistency the inner bark assumes when it is chewed or mixed with water. Native American healers have used the dried inner bark of Slippery Elm trees for centuries, internally and externally.

From 1820 to 1960, the bark was listed in the U.S. Pharmacopoeia as a demulcent, emollient and antitussive. Slippery Elm has been used in Ayurvedic and Traditional Chinese Medicine for gastrointestinal symptoms.

Presently the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) recognizes Slippery Elm as a safe and effective option for sore throat and respiratory irritation due to coughs.

This combination of organic Astragalus and organic Reishi is widely used in traditional Chinese medicine. The organic Reishi is carefully grown on organic millet to nurture its level of polysaccharides, and the organic Astragalus root is classified as "premium grade" due to the age and the size of the root.

The use of Astragalus dates back to the 5th century where it was described as a superior herb due to its tonic action. This supreme group of herbs was described as "rulers ... they control the maintenance of life and correspond to heaven." Of this group of tonic herbs, Astragalus has earned the highest regard and is known as the "yellow leader." Currently, Astragalus is listed in the traditional medicine guides (pharmacopoeia) of China and Japan.

Western herbalists began using Astragalus in the 1800's as a tonic. It became more popular in the 1980's as an important aid in strengthening the natural defense system of the body. It is presently being studied by researchers at the Memorial Sloan-Kettering Cancer Center in collaboration with the Federal Government's Complementary and Alternative Medicine (CAM) research program. The clinical study will focus on botanicals that affect the immune system of patients with cancer and infectious disease. Note: This does not prove the effectiveness of Astragalus in the treatment of cancer, and we do not advocate the use of herbs for self-treatment for any serious disease without the advice of a qualified health care professional.

Reishi is highly regarded in both Chinese and Japanese cultures. Historically, royalty would use this revered mushroom in the hopes of obtaining longevity and to maintain calmness and thought during meditation. It was not until the 1970's that this mushroom was introduced to the West. The red Reishi mushrooms (Ganoderma lucidum) have demonstrated the most significant health-enhancing effects.


Warnings & Disclaimers:
Do not take Astragalus if allergic/sensitive to peanuts or chickpeas or other plants from the Leguminosae/Fabaceae (bean) family.

Oregon's Wild Harvest has combined organic freeze-dried Nettle with other supporting nutraceuticals to provide a formula that has synergistic action provided by its scientifically researched ingredients. The flavonoid, Quercetin, works synergistically with Vitamin C. N-Acetyl Cysteine is an altered form of the amino acid Cysteine and is not provided by our diet.

Quercetin is a flavonoid that is found in a wide variety of vegetables and herbs such as tea, broccoli, red apples and onions. Preliminary research suggests that Quercetin inhibits the production of histamines in the body. Studies show that the efficacy of Quercetin is boosted when combined with Vitamin C, which also modulates histamine levels.

N-acetyl Cysteine (NAC) is a natural amino acid derivative, which has the ability to break down mucous. It increases the levels of the antioxidant, glutathione to help normal cell function and liver function.

Quercetin, Vitamin C and NAC all possess antioxidant activity. Many researchers are beginning to make a correlation between allergies, inflammation and antioxidant status.

As an home herbal remedy, NETTLES have a long history of use. A tea made from the leaves has traditionally been used as a tonic.
Our freshly gathered Nettle are promptly freeze-dried to preserve the full spectrum of chemical activity within the herb. The active ingredient in Nettle is unknown, and it may be that it is a combination of ingredients rather than one single compound which may be responsible for its activity.
Due to our high quality control standards we use only organically cultivated plants from an approved site rather than wild-crafted plants as studies show that Nettle absorbs undesirable heavy metals as well as the beneficial minerals from the soil.

This group incorporates the most highly regarded therapeutic herbs in Ayurvedic medicine. The translation of Ashwagandha is roughly, "the smell and strength of a horse," possibly referring to its aphrodisiac properties.

Key Uses:
  • Helps the body adapt to stress
  • Adaptogen herb
The Benefits of Gymnema

  • Traditionally known as the "Destroyer of Sugar" in Ayurvedic Hindi*

The leaf on this plant has been helping people reduce their desire for sugar for over 2,000 years.*

Commonly known as: cowplant

Parts Used & Where Grown

Gymnema sylvestre is a woody climbing plant that grows in the tropical forests of central and southern India. The leaves are used in herbal medicine preparations. G. sylvestre is known as "periploca of the woods" in English and meshasringi (meaning “ram’s horn”) in Sanskrit. The leaves, when chewed, interfere with the ability to taste sweetness, which explains the Hindi name gurmar—“destroyer of sugar.”

How it Works

The hypoglycemic (blood sugar-lowering) action of gymnema leaves was first documented in the late 1920s.1 This action is attributed to members of a family of substances called gymnemic acids.2,3 Gymnema leaves raise insulin levels, according to research in healthy volunteers.4 Based on animal studies, this may be due to regeneration of the cells in the pancreas that secrete insulin,5,6 or by increasing the flow of insulin from these cells.7 Other animal research shows that gymnema can also reduce glucose absorption from the intestine,8 improve uptake of glucose into cells, and prevent adrenal hormones from stimulating the liver to produce glucose, thereby reducing blood sugar levels.9,10

Other animal studies have shown that extracts of gymnema leaves can lower serum cholesterol and triglycerides and prevent weight gain,11,12,13,14 but these effects have not been tested in humans. When placed directly on the tongue, gurmarin, another constituent of the leaves, and gymnemic acid have been shown to block the ability in humans to taste sweets.15,16
