A small tree covered in thorns located in the Indian plains with the scientific name Commiphora mukul: that's where guggul comes from. Guggul extract is derived from this gum resin‚ and has long been used in traditional Ayurvedic medicine.
Guggul extract may promote joint comfort and flexibility‚ while working to relieve mild inflammation by helping lubricate the tissues within and around the joints‚ especially those of the knee. As a result‚ it will be easier for you to stay active and live life to the fullest. It may also support cardiovascular health and maintain your blood vessels in good condition‚ since guggul may spur fibrinolytic activty that may help break apart clots that can impede blood flow. Furthermore‚ guggul may also support the proper functioning of platelets.
Guggul Extract by Pure Encapsulations serves as a convenient source of guggulsterones‚ which are the primary active ingredient. One capsule provides 500 milligrams of Commiphora mukul gum resin‚ which has been standardized to ensure that you get 2.5 percent of it in guggulsterones. Guggulsterones are compounds that can support healthy lipid metabolism. The effective metabolism of lipids can help manage the functioning of receptors‚ cellular membranes‚ an liver enzymes; it may also promote thyroid functioning (which may assist you in maintaining an already healthy weight) and the excretion of bile acid necessary for the digestive process.
This supplement provides the potential benefits of guggul without the unusual taste. It also contains fat-soluble vitamin C to further promote absorption. Take one vegetarian capsule with every meal. At the recommended dosage‚ each 90-capsule bottle of Pure Encapsulations' Guggul Extract should last for about one month.
