OptiGuggul - discontinued
AOR OptiGuggul. Guggul is used for a broad variety of conditions in Ayurveda, including nutritional support in inflammatory conditions and for supporting healthy body weight: the weight loss appears to be due to the botanical's ability to support healthy thyroid function. But the best-backed such application is in maintaining healthy cholesterol balance.
Supports a Healthy Heart
Opti-Guggul II is the gum resin of the Indian tree Commiphora mukul, which has been used for thousands of years in Ayurvedic medicine. It is an effective supplement to combat inflammation, support heart health, and support thyroid function.
Inflammation, Cholesterol Balance and Other Benefits
Guggul exerts anti-inflammatory effects by inhibiting NF-kappaB, among other mechanisms, which are beneficial for healthy joints, skin, heart and even cellular growth and differentiation. Guggul potently and effectively enhances lipid metabolism. It also increases the excretion of lipids from the body. It lowers cholesterol levels, partly through its ability to block the enzyme that synthesizes cholesterol. Guggul protects heart health by reducing plaque buildup in the arteries (atherosclerosis). It does this by preventing the oxidation of lipids and increasing the breakup of clots. Clot breakup also reduces the risk of heart attacks and strokes. Guggul extracts support the production of thyroid hormones, and studies have found that they help to maintain a healthy body weight.
The Guggul Team
Opti-Guggul II is a non-standardized extract which contains the natural ratios of E & Z-guggulsterones, guggulsterols and other medicinal phytonutrients in order to closely resemble the extracts found to be so effective in traditional Ayurvedic medicine.
