NOW Guggul Extract may be able to assist the body in normalizing cholesterol levels while encouraging healthy immune system response.* Z-Guggulsterone and E-Guggulsterone are isomeric compounds which have been extensively studied for their ability to increase thyroid hormone output and metabolic rate in animals and humans. Guggulsterones also have recently been shown to reduce cholesterol levels by blocking a receptor in the liver called Farnesoid X, thus allowing more cholesterol to be excreted from the body in the form of bile salts.*
