One of the best known Ayurvedic herbs in India is gugul, the A resin (organic substances that exude from trees and plants) from the Commiphora mukul tree, widely used in Indian Ayurvedic medicine, which is now becoming more popular with practitioners of Western alternative medicine. After 2,500 years of successful use, this herb from north-central India is making its way into the arsenal of alternative practitioners. Modern medicine now knows that the Ayurvedic doctors of the past had accurately characterized many health abnormalities in ancient texts such as the Charak Samhita. At that time, the gugul tree (Commiphora mukul) was scraped to yield the gummy resins called "gugul." These resins were then traditionally used for a variety of imbalances such as intestinal inflammation, diarrhea, urinary disorders and more specifically rheumatism and obesity. Indians and Europeans are still using gugul for many of the same conditions for which it was prescribed in the past (Science Age, 7-1987). The high-quality standardized gugul extracts of today make it a viable alternative in the treatment of cholesterol abnormalities and obesity. Before you make any changes to your diet, however, you must confer with your physician.
GUGUL - Double blind clinical trials have shown that gugulesterones may be effective in reducing cholesterol levels. Gugulesterones have been a part of the traditional Indian Ayurvedic medicine for approximately 5000 years. Studies also have shown that Lacto-bacillus Sporogenes may be helpful in cholesterol reduction and improvement of intestinal functions.more...
