Guggul Extract
by NOW
  • 750mg 90 tablets

Guggul Extract is a purified extract isolated from the crude guggul gum of the small Commiphora mukul tree in India. The two active components Z-Guggulsterone and E-Guggulsterone are present at an average of 2.5%. Other components of Guggul Extract include diterpenes, sterols, esters and fatty alcohols. This ancient medicinal plant is referenced in the classical Ayurvedic medical text "Sushruta Samhita" for its traditional benefits.

Some studies have reported that these active guggulsterones may be able to assist the body in normalizing cholesterol levels while encouraging healthy immune system response.* Z-Guggulsterone and E-Guggulsterone are isomeric compounds which have been extensively studied for their ability to increase thyroid hormone output and metabolic rate in animals and humans. Guggulsterones also have recently been shown to reduce cholesterol levels by blocking a receptor in the liver called Farnesoid X, thus allowing more cholesterol to be excreted from the body in the form of bile salts.*
