Yogaraj-guggulu is a widely used Ayurvedic formulation. In a retrospective study for the frequency of, usage, Yogaraj-guggulu ranked first in the hospital practice and second in the private practice. This formulation is used in conditions like arthritis, myalgia and hyperlipidemia. It has been shown to have significant anti-inflammatory activity in formaldehyde-induced arthritis and in croton oil granuloma. Guggulu, the resinous material of Commiphora mukul, the largest single ingredient of Yogaraj-guggulu has been mentioned to be useful in disorders of lipid metabolism in Ayurvedic literature 600 B.C. Hypolipidemic activity of Guggulu has been shown by various workers; However, guggulu as a single drug is rarely used in practice. Yogaraj-guggulu is the commonly used formulation. A large dose of 12 gm/day has been prescribed in ancient Ayurvedic texts. Smaller doses from 3 to 5 gm/day are usual in the present day practice. It was therefore of interest to study the tolerability of large doses of Yogaraj-guggulu in healthy human volunteers. The results of the Phase 1 study are presented in this paper.
Yogaraj Guggulu can be used to support healthy joints, muscles, and nerves. It is especially useful for calming vata in the musculoskeletal system.*
