Guggul & Shilajit
 

Gugguls come from the resin of the Commiphora mukul tree that grows in northwest India. Gugguls penetrate deep into the tissues and help to mobilize lipids and excess fluids and that unique but unwanted substance referred to in Ayurveda as ama, a kind of congesting phlegm-like metabolic residual. Gugguls are anti-inflammatory. Gugguls are usually mixed with other herbs in traditional blends.


Guggul Extract, 2 oz.

Guggul is very similar to myrrh and is widely used in Ayurveda to increase metabolism. Being thermogenic, it is slightly deranging to pitta but very useful for kapha disorders, including obesity and congestion. It is also used to regulate the thyroid and is considered beneficial for vata types unless the patient is suffering from spasms or hiccups. It should not be used during pregnancy. Guggul reduces stickiness and is therefore considered preventative for people at risk of strokes and heart attacks.

Guggul resin is obtained by making cuts in the tree stems and bark. The gum that flows is high in minerals which is why this remedy has been assigned to ashti dhatu. Excess lipids are removed and the minerals are used to regenerate bones and teeth.

Ingredients: 1:1 extract of Commiphora mukul resin in Organic Alcohol and Distilled Water.
