Guggul - Uses and Benefits

Botanical Name : Commiphora Mukul.

Family Name: Burseraceae

Common Name: : Commiphora. Mukul, Guggul, Balsamodendrom Mukul.

Habitat : Rocky tracks of Western India and Eastern Himalayas.

Guggul , also known as Commiphora Mukul and Guggulipid , is a very effective herbal medicine for controlling obesity and cholesterol. It is a well established fat burning agent all over the world and is currently becoming very popular in America, Japan, Europe and many other western nations.

Guggul or Commiphora Guggul is one of the oldest and most famous herbs in ayurvedic medicine. It possesses strong purifying and rejuvenating properties and its lipid regulating and immunomodulating properties are especially beneficial. Guggul contains ketonic steroid compounds known as guggulsterones which are believe to be responsible for guggul's cholestrol- and triglyceride-lowering actions.

Doses of Guggul:

Take 1 or 2 capsules twice daily with meals. Allow several weeks for benefits. The use of natural products provides progressive but long-lasting results.

Side effect of Guggul:-

The possible side effects are as:-

There are no known serious side effects to taking Guggul. It is non-toxic and well-tolerated. However, prolonged use may be associated with mild stomach upset. It may stimulate the thyroid and uterus, so it is best to avoid in cases of hyperthyroidism and pregnancy.

Studies have indicated that guggul can cause side effects in some people, including diarrhea, anorexia, abdominal pain, and skin rash. Modern extracts are more purified and fewer side effects have been reported with long-term use. If you have liver disease, inflammatory bowel disease, or diarrhea use caution when taking this supplement.

 

Uses of Guggul:-

The important uses of guggul are as:-

  • Guggul increased HDL cholesterol, which is needed by the body and lowers LDL cholesterol.
  • It lowers triglyceride levels.
  • It relaxes the muscles which helps relieve menstrual pain.
  • It acts as a blood detoxifier which breaks up stagnation in the body.
  • It is a heart tonic that strengthens the heart.
  • In some of this research, a combination of guggul and garlic worked better than guggul by itself.
  • In humans, three months of guggul treatment resulted in lower levels of total cholesterol and serum triglycerides in the majority of patients.
  • A double-blind trial comparing guggul to the cholesterol-lowering drug clofibrate found that the two treatments were very similar in their ability to lower total cholesterol.
  • Two other placebo-controlled trials in India confirm that guggul can lower total cholesterol and raise HDL.
  • Guggulsterones are reported to stimulate the thyroid, which might tend to have a beneficial effect on cholesterol for people with underactive thyroid glands.
