In the ancient ayurvedic text, sushruta samhita, shuddha guggulu (indian bdellium/commiphora wightii) was prescribed for the treatment of medoroga, a disease that closely resembles the symptoms of hyperlipidemia including high blood cholesterol and the hardening of arteries. Shuddha guggulu has been used historically for centuries to support normal fat levels and metabolism. In the findings published in the american research journal science, scholars at the baylor college of medicine in houston reported that the 2,500 year old traditional indian cholesterol support plant 'really works'. Another group of scholars at the university of texas southwestern medical center in dallas found that shuddha guggulu supports cholesterol metabolism and exerts an antioxidant effect, which supports the normal oxidation levels of cholesterol in the body. The herb is found across the world from northern africa to central asia. In India, it is found in the arid zones, mainly in the states Rajasthan and Gujarat.
