From the leaves of Gymnema sylvestre were isolated three new saponins named gymnemic acid V (1), VI (2) and VII (3), besides the known saponins gypenoside II, V, XLIII, XLV, XLVII LXXIV and gynosaponin TN-2. Their structures were elucidated on the basis of spectral and chemical evidence. 1 and 2 of the three new saponins had antisweet activity.
