The effective lipid regulator
In the ancient Ayurvedic text, Sushruta Samhita, Shuddha Guggulu (Indian Bdellium/Commiphora wightii) was prescribed for the treatment of medoroga, a disease that closely resembles the symptoms of hyperlipidemia including high blood cholesterol and the hardening of arteries.
Shuddha Guggulu has been used historically for centuries to support normal fat levels and metabolism. In the findings published in the American research journal Science, scholars at the Baylor College of Medicine in Houston reported that 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 Shuddha Guggulu supports cholesterol metabolism and exerts an antioxidant effect, which supports the normal oxidation levels of cholesterol in the body.
Shuddha Guggulu, which is actually a gum resin from the Myrrh tree or shrub, was also used historically to support normal joint function. Contemporary scholars at the South Carolina University of Health Sciences found Shuddha Guggulu to be 'supportive of normal mobility levels.'
The antioxidant effects of Shuddha Guggulu have also undergone recent scientific scrutiny. Researchers at the Jackson Laboratory in Bar Harbor, Maine, recently reported that 'Shuddha Guggulu and its component guggulsterone significantly support normal levels of low-density lipoproteins (LDL)'.
The herb is found across the world from Northern Africa to Central Asia. In India, it is found in the arid zones, mainly in the states Rajasthan and Gujarat.
Shuddha Guggulu contains resin, volatile oils and gum. The extract has ketonic steroid compounds known as guggulsterones. E- and Z-guggulsterones are the compounds that are responsible for lowering cholesterol and triglyceride levels. As antioxidants, guggulsterones keep LDL cholesterol from oxidizing,
