What Is Guggul?

Remarkable results may come from a very unremarkable bush. Native to parts of China, India, Pakistan, and Sri Lanka the Guggul tree’s resin has been prized in Ayurvedic medicine for thousands of years. Modern science has now taken a keen interest in guggul as well.

Guggulsterone is the active component of gugulipid which is found in the guggul tree’s resin. Ayurvedic medicine has used this guggul extract for thousands of years to treat many diseases like obesity, arthritis, acne, and more. 

Guggul benefits are not just limited to chronic diseases in the body. The Ayurveda system of medicine uses the guggul herb for mental disorders and modern science is now investigating guggul for mental health. However, we must note that Ayurveda is its own system of medicine and guggul is used for specific imbalances. These do not translate directly into Western Medicine so please work with an informed healthcare provider.
