Ayurveda, a traditional system of medicine in India, allows using natural substances in the treatment various conditions. Guggul is derived from resin of mukul tree, which has been in use for the last thousand years for variety of body conditions, including arteries hardening, high cholesterol levels, and acne. However, it is recommended before using the herb, one should consult a specialist who is well conversant about its usage for safety purposes.

Guggul is known to contain ingredients that help in the pain management that result from the chronic arthritis. It is also an important element in decreasing the high cholesterol levels, and regulates the abnormal menstrual cycle. Due to this feature, Indian health authorities gave an approval for commercialization after successful scientific experiments in the 1980s. It has therefore spread all over the world where results are proving positive in the fight against body cholesterol.

Red Yeast Rice

Red yeast rice usually extracted from the fermented rice with which monascus purpureus yeast is derived to be used. Chinese have been using this supplement for a very long period of time as traditional medicine. It can also be used as a food flavor, preservative, or additive. Its usage has gained fame worldwide where Europeans and Americans have started to use in the past decade.

Red yeast rice is known to contain several elements that aids in the control of cholesterol levels in the body. These are monacolins, isoflavones, sterols, and healthy fats. In regard of this, studies have shown that when it is consumed, the LDL, commonly known as the bad cholesterol is reduced by 30 percent. The LDL lowers the efficiency of the blood vessels by thickening them. This in return impedes the blood flow throughout the body. It is recommended that intake of 2.4 grams should be consumed on a daily basis so as to achieve the desired results. However, its side effects have not yet been established due to the conflicting opinions by different researchers due of its effectiveness.

Rating: 5/5

This is a great all natural product. I have been taking so much cholesterol medicine, that has been having negative side affects such as cramps, fatigue, throwing up, etc. This is the first natural product that I could take that did not only lower my cholesterol but also had no bad side affects. If anything it has had positive affects such as giving me energy, and making me have a better appetite. I highly recommend to try this out. It is the best Red Yeast Rice product that I have found. Not only does it have a good price but the Guggul in it for you is extremely good for you. Solaray is also known to be a good brand!
