Gymnema sylvestre is an herb native to the tropical forests of southern and central India and Sri Lanka. Common names include Gymnema, cowplant, Australian cowplant, and Periploca of the woods. The plant is best known for its leaf extract to suppress the sweet receptors of the tongue. The active ingredient that causes this physiological reaction is gurmarin, a polypeptide made of 35 amino acids.
Despite the part used being the leaf, a common name of this species is miracle fruit.
