OmSanA® is a proprietarily processed, all natural nutritional supplement, which can be used as part of your diet to help maintain blood sugar and cholesterol levels that are already within the normal range.* OmSanA® is the result of more than 20 years of international research and development.
OmSanA®’s active ingredient, OSA, is a proprietarily processed Virgin Isolate, aqueous extract of the Gymnema sylvestre leaf, an ancient Ayurvedic plant, which is a woody climbing plant, and grows naturally in the Indian sub-continent. Gymnema sylvestre leaf and extracts have, reportedly, been used in Indian ‘folk medicine’, since 6000 B.C.1 Several Tribes, including the Santals, in east-central India, have used Gymnema sylvestre leaves for centuries in their diet and as a folk remedy. The Gymnema sylvestre leaves are used in traditional herbal preparations, which, when chewed, interfere with the ability to taste sweetness.
The ingredient name, OSA, denotes Om Santal Adivasi, as a tribute to the Santal Tribe. The name OSA was originally chosen by Santal Solution’s founder, in 1988, to describe the new technology of recreating the Santal Tribe’s Ayurvedic methods to retain the labile compounds of the Active Principles. This was achieved by the Ayurvedic extraction of the fresh, and cool air-dried Gymnema sylvestre leaves, under specific conditions. Today, endocrine research and several clinical studies in general, and our own In Vitro and In Vivo research on OmSanA continue to further validate the unique nature of OmSanA®’s active ingredient, OSA.
It is extremely important to work with a physician before supplementing with OmSanA®. Taking OmSanA® may require dosage adjustments of existing therapies. Caution should be exercised when taking OmSanA® along with prescription medications (including oral hypoglycemics or insulin). Please note that the combination of OmSanA® and prescription medications could adversely affect blood-sugar levels.
To date, no side effects have been reported at normal dosages (500mg - 750mg/day), but researchers have not established whether this herb is absolutely safe for pregnant women or during lactation. (In clinical trials a dosage of 1500mg/day resulted in occasional irregularities in menstrual cycle and slight green coloration of the stool.)
Individual results will vary, however clinical trials have shown results as early as 30 days.
Yes, standardization of herbal extracts assures product consistency, OmSanA®’s proprietary extraction process supports a high level of consistency as well as preserves the labile compounds of the Active Principles. In addition, Santal Solutions adheres to Good Manufacturing Practice (GMP) and stringent quality controls.
Yes, the results of our several human clinical studies have shown OmSanA® to have no significant side effects.
OmSanA® requires only one-third the normal dosage due to its unique “less is more” property. Moreover, recent cellular research at King’s College London has shown OmSanA® (OSA) to be up to 400% more active than the leading Gymnema sylvestre based products. In addition, Santal Solutions LLC maintains control of the entire process: from harvest, handling, storage, extraction, and packaging.
