Ultra Guggulow supplies a standardized extract of gum guggul resin (Gugulipid‚ an herb derived from the commiphora mukul tree in India‚ Gugulipid is standardized at 2.5% "gugglsterones"‚ which are active ingredients present in the resin. BioPerine promotes absorption of nutrients in the GI tract.
Helps Maintain Normal Healthy Cholesterol Levels
The research of gum guggul over the last 30 years has produced a wealth of evidence establishing this herb’s beneficial effect on cholesterol and blood fats. The preliminary studies carried out by Satyavati and her colleagues were done on rabbits fed hydrogenated vegetable oil to artificially elevate cholesterol levels. In contrast to non-treated test subjects‚ rabbits given gum guggul had normal cholesterol and blood lipid levels and healthy blood vessels.
A number of multicentric clinical trials have tested the efficacy of Gugulipid® for maintaining normal cholesterol. The CDRI has conducted Phase 1 trials to establish the safety of the extract. Gugulipid® has been found safe and free of unwanted effects on blood chemistry‚ liver function and the heart. Phase II trials confirmed Gugulipid®’s effectiveness in normalizing total cholesterol‚ LDL‚ HDL and triglycerides.
SOD-Protecting‚ Antioxidant Action
In an animal study carried out by the CDRI‚ guggulsterones reversed the decrease in SOD (superoxide dismutase) activity that results from reduced blood flow to the heart. The researchers reported that “SOD was significantly protected by guggulsterone.” Increases in lipid peroxides (free-radical byproducts) and xanthine oxidase‚ an enzyme that produces oxygen free radicals‚ were also reversed. Although preliminary‚ these findings lend additional support to the use of Gugulipid® for sustaining cardiovascular health.
