The guggul tree – a source of healing and youth

"The guggul tree is a genuinely fascinating plant. Guggul resin has been used in all kinds of Ayurvedic treatments for thousands of years already. I am convinced that it will continue to gain significance in western medicine as well." (Dr. Jürgen Juchheim)

The West Indian guggul tree has been used in Ayurvedic treatments for thousands of years. It is botanically classified as a member of the myrrh family, which is how it got the name of Indian myrrh. The resin of this tree is particularly useful in medical and cosmetic treatments. Ayurvedic physicians use guggul resin to treat a variety of conditions, from arthritis, skin conditions and bone inflammation, all the way to metabolic disorders and obesity. Western medical practitioners have now confirmed the resin's cholesterol-reducing properties.
The main active ingredient is a steroid called guggulsterone.

In the effect cream 4Weeks, the guggul resin stimulates two types of enzymes in the human body. These enzymes speed up the process of depositing fats (lipids) in the subcutaneous fat cells. As a result, the bust becomes fuller and the skin becomes smoother. This change is absolutely independent of hormonal influences.
