Guggul (Commiphora mukul) is a tree resin that is perhaps the most famous Ayurvedic substance known for supporting cholesterol levels already within a normal range and a healthy stress response. This resin is rich in extremely active guggulsterones.
Guggul was traditionally used in Ayurveda to support the utilization of fat as the body’s fuel source, helping to stabilize weight, energy levels, mood and mental clarity, among many others functions in the body.
Guggul is balancing to kapha and its potent detoxification properties are also beneficial for individuals who are in the process of purifying from a toxic lifestyle.*
