Product Description

Himalaya Guggul is a pure herb extract. Guggul or Shuddha Guggul / Guggulu helps maintain normal cholesterol levels, normal HDL-LDL ratio and triglyceride levels. Guggul also helps to lose weight. It is considered by many to be the best herb for cholesterol support. Guggul is a gum resin, produced by the stem of a small shrub(commiphora wiighti), which is native to India. Ayurvedic practitioners have used guggul for various benefits. Guggul (Commiphora mukul) has been used historically for centuries to support normal body fat levels and normal metabolism. In findings published in the American research journal Science, scholars at Baylor College of Medicine in Houston say the 2,500 year old traditional Indian cholesterol support plant "really works!"


Another group of scholars at the University of Texas Southwestern Medical Center in Dallas found that Guggul supports cholesterol metabolism, and exerts an antioxidant effect, which supports the normal oxidation levels of cholesterol in the body. Guggul, has also been used historically to support normal joint function. Scholars at South Carolina University of Health Sciences (2003) found Guggul to be supportive of normal mobility levels. Guggul's antioxidant effects have also been subjected to scientific scrutiny. Researchers at the Jackson Laboratory in Bar Harbor, Maine recently showed that Commiphora mukul and its component guggulsterone significantly support normal levels of LDL."

    Guggul in Ayurveda: Back in 1966, an Indian researcher found references to Guggul in a centuries-old Ayurvedic text and submitted a doctoral thesis on gum guggul. The herb is mentioned in the Vedas, the holy scriptures of India believed to be anywhere from 3,000 to 10,000 years old. Translated from Sanskrit, this text describes, in elegant detail, a condition called "coating and obstruction of channels." with the cause believed to be faulty metabolism due to overeating of fatty foods and lack of exercise. The recommended treatment plan emphasized diet and herbs, chiefly guggul. In the researcher's study conducted on rabbits, guggul consistently produced substantial reductions in cholesterol and triglyceride levels, while raising HDL
