Use Gymnema to help remove accumulated sugars, a result of Pitta or Kapha imbalance. After taking Gymnema, many people report a decrease in cravings for sugar or sweet foods. Gymnema has been used safely in India for several centuries.
Support For: Pitta Kapha
Individuals of dominant Kapha Doshas have slower metabolism and are often attracted to sweet foods. Pitta governs metabolic activities in the body, such as sugar metabolism.
An exaggerated Pitta imbalance affects the body's metabolism, including sugar metabolism. Kapha's sometime need help to curb sugar cravings. Gymnema helps suagr metabolism to balance both of these body type imbalances.
Pitta dominant people should not just limit sugar intake when out of balance; but also keep an eye on Pitta aggravating foods (hence taxing an overworked metabolic system) such as oily, fried, spicy foods and alcohol.
