Guggulu is a small, thorny tree that produces only approximately 1 lb of resin every two years. Our resin is grown by a certified USDA farm committed to supporting the future growth of this amazing medicine. Prepared in a classic Ayurvedic way, the hard resin has been decocted with Triphala and naturally occurring silica from quartz to make it usable in your own formulas. Guggulu works like a scraper through the channels of the body, reducing cholesterol, dissolving blockages, and calming inflammation. It has a special affinity for the blood, making it extremely useful for heart conditions, congestion in the reproductive system, and the skin.
