This product was formulated and recommended by internationally recognised doctor and author Dr James Balch. It contains a number of natural ingredients, including Garlic, Guar gum seed, Guggul extract, Tocotrienols (from red palm oil), Policosanol, the mineral Chromium and the vitamins E & C . The classic Ayurvedic medical text, the Sushruta Samhita, describes in detail the usefulness of guggul in the treatment of obesity and other disorders of fat metabolism including "coating and obstruction of channels." Inspired by this description, researchers began studying, in well-designed scientific studies, the clinical effectiveness of guggul and its extracts in disorders of lipid metabolism-specifically, its ability to lower cholesterol and triglyceride levels and promote weight loss. The hypo-lipidemic action of guggul was first reported in 1966 in a doctorate thesis submitted to the Banaras Hindu University by G.V. Satyavati. This work was inspired by the discovery of a strong correlation between the ancient concept of atherosclerosis and obesity described in the Sushruta Samhita and the modern concept of the pathogenesis of atherosclerosis. Satyavati's experiment showed that guggul lowered the serum cholesterol levels and body weight of hypercholesterolemic rabbits, and protected the animals against hyper-cholesterolemia and atherosclerosis induced by an atherogenic diet. This report excited interest among other researchers, and resulted in the initiation of several animal experiments that attempted to further describe the hypo-lipidemic action of guggul, all of which showed a favourable effect. In a study conducted in 1981, Baldwa and colleagues observed not only a highly significant reduction in cholesterol and triglycerides in chicks after administration of guggul, but also reported a reversal of the atherosclerotic process at a dose of 3 grams/kg body weight. Policosanol is a mixture of fatty compounds derived from the outer wax of cane sugar. Extensive clinical studies have proven Policosanol is both safe and effective in lowering cholesterol levels by several mechanisms, including blocking cholesterol formation in the liver. Tocotrienols. A member of the vitamin E family which works synergistically with tocopherols. In clinical trials, tocotrienols have been found to help lower blood levels of low-density lipoproteins (LDL's or Bad cholesterol) Other research has shown that tocotrienols have positive effects on liver function, heart function, breast cancer and even Alzheimer's. Chromium is an essential mineral that is required in the maintenance of human health and is a vital component of GTF, or glucose tolerance factor. Glucose tolerance factor works in concert with insulin to stabilize blood sugar levels and to aid in the uptake and metabolism of glucose, or blood sugar, by the cells of the body. Adequate levels of chromium are required for the synthesis of enzymes, proteins, fats, and cholesterol. This vital nutrient can also help increase lean body mass while reducing body fat. Chromium can also help to lower levels of Low Density Lipoprotein, or bad cholesterol, and help prevent cardiovascular disease, one of the country's leading causes of death. A key indicator of coronary artery disease is dangerously low levels of chromium in blood plasma. Inadequate intake of chromium can impair the production of GTF, limiting insulin activity. This results in high blood sugar levels, glucose intolerance, and can lead to symptoms similar to adult-onset diabetes.
