It is a well established fat burning agent all over the world and is currently becoming very popular in America, Japan, Europe and many other western nations. Guggul is a resin known to increase white blood cell counts and possess strong disinfecting properties. It has long been known to lower cholesterol and triglycerides, while maintain or improve the HDL to LDL ratio. It is one of the very first "broad spectrum drugs" with a wide therapeutic range. A broad mode of action makes this herb very helpful even in protecting against ailments such as common cold, and various skin, dental and ophthalmic infections.
One of the most famous herbs in Ayurvedic medicine, Guggul possesses strong purifying and rejuvenating powers. People today most commonly use it to benefit from Guggul's lipid regulating and immunomodulating properties. It has been shown that Guggul can lower blood cholesterol by 14-27% and can lower triglycerides by 22-30%. The effects that Himalaya's Guggul has on the blood cholesterol levels is comparable to prescription medications but, being a natural plant extract, it is a far superior and much safer product. Guggul works on the liver by increasing the metabolism (or break down) of the bad cholesterol known as LDL Cholesterol. After taking the product for 4 to 12 weeks, total cholesterol levels can drop, triglyceride levels can drop and an increase in HDL (the good cholesterol) of approximately 16% can occur. Its benenfits as a weight-loss and fat burning agent have been well researched and documented in several studies.

It is useful in the treatment of arteriosclerosis, while reducing existing plaque in arteries.

How long do I have take Guggul before I see any results?
Herbal medicines provide progressive, long-term benefits. Certain classes of herbs work well in acute conditions to provide quick relief, however herbs like Guggul usually take 3-4 weeks before you can experience the full benefits of taking it. Individual results can vary, depending on the nature and seriousness of the condition for which Guggul is being consumed.
Have any studies been done on Guggul?
One 12-week study demonstrated that 1500 milligrams of guggulipid had average reduction in serum cholesterol of nearly 22%, while triglycerides were reduced about 25% in people who took it regularly. Another study showed that guggulipid works best for people who have high cholesterol reading of the type IIb (increased LDL, VLDL, and triglycerides) and type IV (increased VLDL and triglycerides). A third study involving 233 people with elevated cholesterol or triglycerides levels (or both) showed that guggulipid worked better than the cholesterol-lowering drug Clofibrate. People taking guggul had the added benefit of seeing some improvements in HDL, the �good cholesterol� - an effect that was not in evidence with the pharmaceutical.
Is Guggul a standardized herbal medicine?
Himalaya Healthcare Company has solved the riddle of ensuring consistency of performance for herbal remedies through full control of all stages of production from growing the herbs on their own farms to adhering to pharma Good Manufacturing Practices (GMP) and stringent quality controls. Every Himalaya Pure Herb, including Guggul, is fingerprinted using the most sophisticated chromatographic techniques to consistently maintain the highest quality.
What is the difference between the pure herb, Guggul, and herbal blends that contain Guggul as a primary ingredient?
Himalaya Pure Herbs is a line of clinically proven traditional herbs from The Himalaya Drug Company. The Himalaya Pure Herbs range delivers to you the best of a rich Indian pharmacopoeia in a convenient capsule form. Each Pure Herb capsule contains the goodness of the entire Guggul plant and all its attendant benefits. On the other hand, herbal blends, like HeartCare and GlucoCare, that contain Guggul as the primary ingredient fulfill essentially all of the functions that Guggul individually does, but include other herbs that address different aspects of cholesterol and glucose metabolism respectively. For most consumers, it is often a matter of choice when deciding between Pure Herbs and Herbal blends.
Which is more important when shopping for herbal medicines - safety, effectiveness, or bioequivalence?
We recognize that, for most consumers, the real issue is less one of safety and effectiveness of herbal remedies in general and more one of the quality of the specified product. The real issue for the consumer is the question of bioequivalence: is the product in front of me going to be bioequivalent to the one I have been reading about and deliver the results I expect?
Why buy Himalaya Guggul when there are countless other brands available on the market?
It is important that you, as a consumer, look for products that have not only been researched clinically but are also �fingerprinted� to guarantee that �the science is in the pill�. Himalaya, in fact, pioneered �fingerprinting� as the way to achieve consistency of performance of herbal remedies. Fingerprinting refers to perfectly matching the entire phytoconstituent profile of the plant between the product on the market and the reference or standard on which the science has been generated. In other words, �fingerprinting� the entire make-up of the herbal product is the only way to verify bioequivalence. Most companies that manufacture herbal medicines are not equipped nor care to perform such fingerprinting. Consequently for the consumer, most products on the market cannot truly make the claims they make because the bioequivalence of their herbal products has not been conclusively established through a match of their phytoconstituent profiles with the reference.
Guggul has been scientifically validated by many clinical studies. Its formula has been subjected to the modern scrutiny of clinical testing to prove its benefits in gently addressing your health concerns, and its quality is controlled by the most sophisticated chromatographic "fingerprinting" techniques.
