Re: [IP] Herb-said to lower Blood Surar?

>you know? Thank you.

Richard, the following paragraph was located by doing a Search after 
following the link to QuackWatch on your Links page: 

"Extracts of Gymnema sylvestre, a plant grown in India, are alleged 
to cause weight loss by preventing sugar from being absorbed into the 
body. Chewing the plant's leaves can prevent the taste sensation of 
sweetness. But there is no reliable evidence that the chemicals they 
contain can block sugar absorption or produce weight loss."

Enough said?
