Guggul is a gummy yellowish resin extract from India used primarily for reduction of cholesterol. It also reduces platelet stickiness and helps to eliminate blood clots, which may make it effective in preventing strokes as well as preventing other cardiovascular problems. Gum Guggul is an Indian herb which has been used in Ayurvedic medicine for thousands of years. It is a natural alternative to drugs for reducing cholesterol. It has been used to increase HDL cholesterol which is known as the good cholesterol which is needed by the body. HDL-cholesterol has been shown to offer protection against heart disease due to atherosclerosis.
Gugulipid has its cholesterol-lowering action due to its ability to increase the liver's metabolism of LDL-cholesterol. As for example, guggulsterone has the ability to increase the uptake of LDL-cholesterol from the blood by the liver. Another very important ability of guggulsterone is that it stimulates thyroid function. It is possible that this thyroid-stimulating effect is responsible for the extract's lipid-lowering activity.
Guggul has been used for weight loss with great success. It also is very beneficial as a heart tonic and for increasing energy.
