It is commonly called guggulu or guggul. (Commiphora mukul, Commiphora wightii and Balsamodendron mukul), is a small tree of the Burseraceae family that is indigenous to India. It grows wild in the semi-arid states of Rajasthan, Gujarat, and Karnataka in India. The Commiphora mukul tree has an ash-colored bark that comes off in large flakes exposing the under bark that also peels away. The gum resin of the Commiphora mukul tree is revered in Ayurveda for its medicinal properties.
The gum resin resides in the ducts located in the soft bark of the tree. It is obtained through a process called tapping. Circular incisions are made on the main stem, not beyond the thickness of the bark. From these incisions, a pale yellow, aromatic fluid exudes that quickly solidifies to form a golden brown or reddish brown agglomerate of tears or stalactic pieces. The dried resin has a bitter aromatic taste and a balsamic odor.
An effective herbal medicine for controlling obesity and cholesterol. Some have described Guggul as the most powerful cholesterol lowering herb known.

It has long been known to lower cholesterol and triglycerides, while maintaining or improving the HDL to LDL ratio. It has been shown that Guggul can lower blood cholesterol by 14-27% and can lower triglycerides by 22-30%.
Medroga, the original set of ailments for which Guggul is indicated in centuries-old Ayurveda is similar to modern day diseases related to body’s fat related metabolism e.g. excessive weight, atherosclerosis, high cholesterol etc. Guggul extracts are traditionally used by Ayurvedic practitioners for ailments such as lowering bad cholesterol and triglyceride levels.
