Clinical Studies II

Study 2

Objective: To study the effect of gum guggul on the serum fibrinolytic activity (FA) and platelet adhesive index (PAI).

Methods: Healthy subjects (20) and patients of coronary heart disease were divided into control and treated subgroups. The treated groups received a gum guggul fraction of 0.5 g twice daily in a gelatin capsule for 30 days. Withdrawn blood samples were analyzed for fibrinolytic activity and platelet adhesive index.

Results:

Conclusions::The gum guggul fraction reduced platelet adhesiveness and increased the blood’s fibrinolytic activity (i.e. fibrin-breaking activity), two actions that are extremely beneficial in protecting against heart attack and stroke (thrombosis). The activity persisted as long as the gum guggul was taken.
