Guggul

Guggul

Guggul (Commiphora mukul) is a resin produced by the stem of the Commiphora mukul tree, a small, thorny plant that grows throughout India. Chemicals in the resin called guggulsterones are responsible for its favorable effect on cholesterol and triglycerides. They not only lower levels of LDL and VLDL--the 'bad' cholesterols--but raise levels of the 'good' cholesterol HDL. They also appear to reduce the stickiness of platelets in the blood, thus lowering the risk of dangerous clots.

Guggul has been used to lower cholesterol levels and prevent the hardening of arteries. It has been used for arthritis, weight loss, and skin disease.
