Guggul is the classical treatise on Ayurvedic medicine, Sushrita
Samhita, describes the use of guggul for a wide variety of conditions,
including rheumatism and obesity. One of its primary indications was a
condition known as medoroga, similar to the modern description of
atherosclerosis. Standardized guggul extracts are approved in India for
lowering elevated serum cholesterol and triglyceride levels. Guggul and
gum guggulu are the names given to a yellowish resin produced by the
stem of the plant. This resin has been used historically and is also the
source of modern extracts of guggul.
Red yeast rice has therapeutic benefits as both a promoter of blood
circulation and a digestive stimulant were first noted in the
traditional Chinese pharmacopoeia. Practitioners of Traditional Chinese
Medicine use red yeast rice to treat abdominal pain due to stagnant
blood and dysentery, as well as external and internal trauma.
