Q. Is there anything you can take that will knock your sweet craving?
If you get on a better diet and you make a clean break with the sweets, often your taste readjusts fairly quickly. One other thing that’s an interesting compound is an herb called gymnema sylvestre. There’s actually a compound in gymnema that tends to suppress appetite to some degree. It may be especially good at suppressing sweet craving. It’s an ayurvedic herb, an herb that’s been used in ancient Indian practices for many years. It’s been used for diabetes. So that’s something else worth considering.
