Chemical composition / key active constituents

The presence of Gymnemic acid (GA), (+) quercitol, lupeol, ß-amyrin, stigmasterol etc., have been reported. GA I, II, III and IV are anti sweet substance from the leaves of G. sylvestris. They all contain a glucuronic acid moiety, and the gymnemagenin aglycone esterified at position C-21 and C-28. A second series of Gymnemic acid V-VII has also been reported. GA VII is the 3-O-glucuronide of gymnemagenin and GA V is the O-3-glycuronyl- 22, 21-bis-O-tigloyl substitution patterns. GA VIII-IX are also esters of saponin, have an oxoglycoside moiety attached to the glucuronic acid residue. Gurmarin, another constituent of the leaves, and gymnemic acid have been shown to block sweet taste in humans. Some researchers have suggested gymnemic acid as one possible candidate responsible for antidiabetic activity. 


Leaves are found to be antidiabetic, and insulinotropic. The active principles which have been identified as glycosides (several gymnemic acids) suggest that the topical and selective anaesthetic effect of the plant might result from the reaction of the receptor sites between glycosides and the sweet substances. Gymnemic acids inhibited glucan formation by streptococcus mutans in vivo and also markedly inhibited the activity of glucosyltransferase from bacterial coat creasing capillary fragility.  as per Ayurveda and some literature studies
