Himalaya Shuddha Guggulu 60 Capsules,
Cholesterol Regulator, Weight Loss, Arthritis
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
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.
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, an action
which protects against atherosclerosis (artery hardening).
High serum cholesterol: Guggulsterone, the active ingredient in Shuddha Guggulu,
decreases LDL cholesterol and triglyceride levels, which in turn lowers the overall
cholesterol levels in the blood. It modulates the lipid profile.
Atherosclerosis: Shuddha Guggulu is responsible for lowering cholesterol in the
body, while at the same time boosting levels of ‘good’ cholesterol. Both of these
actions help prevent atherosclerosis, the clogging and hardening of blood vessels.
Weight loss: Shuddha Guggulu enhances the thyroid function, which in turn
regulates metabolism and can help with weight loss.
Arthritis: The herb is a potent anti-inflammatory and helps in the management
of inflammatory joint disorders like arthritis.
