For centuries, guggul has been used extensively by Ayurvedic physicians to treat a variety of afflictions, including arthritis, inflammation, bone fractures, obesity, and disorders of lipid metabolism.
Guggul has been shown to be a useful adjunct to dietary modification in hypercholesterolemic patients. Treatment was with gugulipid at a level supplying 100 mg of guggulsterones daily for six months. In addition to a fruit- and vegetable-enriched diet, it resulted in an 11.7% reduction in total cholesterol, 12.5% reduction in LDL cholesterol, 12.0% reduction in triglycerides, and 11.1% reduction in the total cholesterol/high-density lipoprotein cholesterol ratio in 61 patients.
