The leaves of this perennial vine are esteemed for their unique properties, particularly in traditional Indian Ayurvedic medicine. Known for their distinctive, complex taste, often described as having a "sugar blocking" effect, Gymnema leaves serve as an intriguing element in health-focused teas and supplements.

The leaves of Gymnema are primarily recognized for their purported ability to suppress the taste of sweetness, leading to its colloquial naming as the "sugar destroyer".
