Morpheme Guggul (Commiphora Mukul)
- Reviews (1)
Morpheme Guggulis a wonderful herbal product recommended in Ayurveda for a number of conditions such as obesity, impotency, atherosclerosis, high cholesterol and many more. An elevated level of blood cholesterol is the main reason for cardiovascular diseases. In Ayurveda, the traditional Indian medicine, Guggul is used to improve the serum-lipid profile. Commiphora mukul or Guggul capsules are considered effective in naturally regulating the cholesterol level.
Guggul is the gum resin produced by the stems of tiny shrub called Comminphora Mukul, which is found basically in the Indian subcontinent. While weight loss mechanisms of guggulare still being studied, there is lack of evidence from placebo-controlled, randomized clinical trials for the effectiveness of the gum resin in humans. However, some non-controlled, controlled and open clinical studies imply that the gum resin might offer benefits in weight loss, but warrants further evaluation.

How to use
The recommended dosage for adults is 1 – 2 capsules or as suggested by the physician. It is important to take the supplement regularly to get optimal results.
The herb is very effective in maintaining normal levels of cholesterol, normal HDL-LDL ratio and triglyceride levels. The herb supports the metabolism level and exerts antioxidant-effect, which promotes normal-oxidation levels of cholesterol. Researchers of the ‘Jackson Laboratory’ at Maine have shown that Commiphora Mukul and its effective component guggulsterone provide an important support in maintaining the normal LDL level.
A 12 week study was carried-out on a group of participants to find the consequences of Guggul in the reduction of cholesterol levels. The research indicated that guggulipid (1500 mg) had an average reduction of 22% in the serum-cholesterol and 25% in triglycerides. In addition, the studies also showed that guggulipid did not work to the optimal level in people having high cholesterol reading of kind IIb (indicating increased triglycerides, LDL and VLDL).

Case studies conducted by an Ayurveda Research Centre – SPARC in India had 13 female patients, who were in the age group of 32 – 54 years. Eleven patients showed weight loss of 2 to almost 14 pounds over a period of 1 to 8 months with no change in exercise and diet. The preliminary weight of the participants was in the range of 132 – 216 pounds.
Another case review showed that, when larger dosages of guggul supplements were combined with moderate exercise and diet, it can result in more weight loss. Out of the 36 patients, who followed this therapy for weight loss, 7 of them lost over 22 pounds in a month. The average weight loss among participants in this group was 8 pounds. In a clinical trial that involved 70 obese participants, the group that was given herbal weight loss formulations containing the herb guggul experienced considerable weight loss, while the placebo-group did not experience any weight loss.
A research conducted by scientists at the ‘Central Drug Research Institute’ in India has validated the ability of guggulsterone in suppressing LDL oxidation. The study supports the evidence of the herb acting against the obstruction and coating of channels. Due to oxidation of LDL, a plaque is formed, which covers the blood vessels and finally obstructs them. The LDL present in the blood was combined with free-radical supporting agent either alone or it was combined with guggulsterones. After analyzing the samples, it was proved that guggulsterones protected LDL from oxidation. Moreover, hydroxyl radicals are blocked by guggulsterones.
A comparative study was conducted with a drug known as Clofibrate and guggulipid and the later showed better effects with an added effect being HDL reduction, which was not clearly evident in Clofibrate.
