Guggul Extract Statins Substitute Anti-Cholesterol Formula

As a statins substitute, Guggul (Commiphora mukul) - from India - increases HDL cholesterol and reduces LDL cholesterol, lowers triglycerides, helps reduce blood clots and prevents strokes, helps with proper thyroid function, weight management and hepatitis. Guggul detoxifies the blood, helps circulation, heart, asthma, skin problems, boosts energy and the immune system.

An extract from a small tree found across Arabia and India can help to reduce cholesterol, scientists have discovered. The extract, called guglipid, comes from the guggal tree and has been used in Ayurvedic medicine, a traditional Hindu medicine, for nearly 3,000 years.

It received regulatory approval in India in 1987 and is used to treat a range of conditions including obesity and lipid disorders.

Experts from UT Southwestern Medical Center at Dallas and Baylor College of Medicine in Houston, found that the extract blocks the body's Farnesoid X Receptor (FXR).

This receptor plays a key role in managing cholesterol levels by triggering the process in which the body converts cholesterol to bile acids.

It this process happens too quickly the body is not able to get rid of enough cholesterol, leaving levels high and increasing the risks of heart disease.

The researchers said their findings, published in Science magazine (May 2002), could pave the way for the use of guglipid in new cholesterol-lowering drugs.

Kanu Patel, who practices Ayurvedic medicine in Leicester, said he was not surprised by the findings.

"There has been clinical data from India for years showing that guglipid is effective.
"Scientists in the US are only starting to look at it now but really we have known this for years."

Guggul is a resin known to increase white blood cell counts and possess strong disinfecting properties. A wide range of actions makes this plant very helpful not only in protecting against the common cold, but also in various skin, dental and ophthalmic infections. In addition, Guggul has long been known to lower cholesterol and triglycerides, while maintaining or improving the HDL to LDL ratio.
