GLOSSARY
COMMIPHORA MUKUL (GUGGUL)

Commiphora Mukul (Guggul)

 

How does it work?

Guggul is a tree gum resin used in western and ayurvedic herbal medicine.1 It has cholesterol and lipid lowering activity via stimulation of thyroid function2 and is used as an adjunct treatment for atherosclerosis.3 This is due to containing steroid constituents within the gum resin known as guggulsterones.4 Guggul has also shown to have anti-inflammatory actions particularly for arthritis.5

What results can be expected?

Guggul may assist in lowering both blood cholesterol and triglyceride status.6 It may also help improve outcome measures for osteoarthritis through reducing inflammation and pain.7
