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.

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).
