Lower cholesterol with guggul
The guggul tree’s resin can help lower cholesterol just as well as prescription medications-without the side affects. In one study, volunteers saw their total cholesterol plunge by 24% in just three months-and it even raises “good” cholesterol levels by up to 35%! Researchers aren’t exactly sure how it works, but they think it helps speed the breakdown of cholesterol in the liver before it can enter the bloodstream. The herb also stimulates thyroid function, which improves metabolism-a reason it’s now an ingredient in several weight loss drugs!
