A mainstay in Ayurvedic medicine, guggul boasts a wide range of health benefits. New Roots Herbal’s Guggul in convenient capsule form is validated in our ISO 17025–accredited analytical laboratory to contain a minimum of 1% guggulsterone, the compound recognized for its ability to alleviate joint pain and swelling. It has been shown to reduce inflammation via suppression of NF‑κB, a pivotal proinflammatory compound.
Chronic inflammation of weight-bearing joints, especially the hips and knees, ranks among the main obstacles for healthy, active aging. Guggul is a natural alternative for the management of joint pain. Reducing pain allows you to be more active and strengthen muscle groups that support points of articulation, which may, in turn, contribute to experiencing less joint pain.
Kick the vicious cycle of pain; start the healthy cycle of gain!

Guggul has very subtle and penetrating qualities and because of this is considered a yogavahi, meaning that it is often employed specifically to carry other substances deep into the tissues. Further, its combination with other herbs actually lends direction to its powerful detoxifying and rejuvenating qualities. Guggul pacifies vata, pitta, and kapha, though it is especially renowned for alleviating vata aggravations. In general, guggul has an affinity for all of the tissues in the body as well as the circulatory, digestive, nervous, and respiratory systems. Guggul is very scraping, which enables it to clear toxins from the tissues and channels while rejuvenating them. In fact, it is this scraping quality that gives guggul a number of its beneficial attributes.
