There are a number of things that can cause rapid weight gain, especially around the waistline. A poor diet, lack of exercise, stress and other unhealthy lifestyle habits are the major factors contributing to the accumulation of belly fat. Excess belly fat or abdominal obesity poses serious health risks, including cardiovascular disease, type 2 diabetes, and some cancers. But making simple lifestyle can dietary changes can help you get rid of stubborn belly fat. In fact, Ayurveda suggests that adding some natural herbal remedies to your diet can help you burn fat. For instance, Guggul is a widely accepted Ayurvedic herb for weight loss.
Ayurvedic practitioners believe that herbs and spices benefit health in many ways such as improving digestion and boosting your metabolism, which helps in burning fats. In fact, many of these herbal treatments and remedies have been in use for more than 1,000 years, although very little research has been done on plants as medicinal agents.
Guggul, which is the herbal extract from the resin of the Commiphora Mukul tree, has been used in Ayurvedic medicine for centuries. Some studies support the claim that Guggul can be beneficial for weight loss and thyroid health. For example, one study found that taking guggulsterone phosphate supplement alongside regular exercise led to a significant reduction in fat mass.
The Ayurvedic herb has been used to treat and control high cholesterol. It is claimed that Guggul contains plant steroids that reduce cholesterol and triglycerides. There’s some evidence supporting the role of Ayurvedic practices in weight loss and healthful living.
It is recommended that Guggul be taken along with other herbs such as amalaki, shilaji, and black pepper to boost nutrient absorption. For best results, it is suggested to consume the Ayurvedic herb thrice a day after meals. The herb can be taken in powder or tablet form.
Guggul is safe for most individuals when taken by mouth within the normal range.
Always talk to your Ayurveda Doctor before starting any medicines to ensure that they’re safe for you.
