I've been using Syntrax Guggulbolic off and on for several years. Guggul was reported to be a thyroid stimulator which is useful in reducing cholesterol levels in the body. I didn't want to go on medication, plus my doctor insisted that I lose a few pounds. Guggulbolic appears to work very well indeed! My last physical exam revealed total cholesterol of only 140 which my doctor says he usually sees only in people on cholesterol lowering medications! I am no vegetarian or teetotaler either - I eat PLENTY of organic meat protein, whole organic eggs several times per week, a variety of animal and plant fats, and enjoy alcoholic beverages within reason. The only thing that I changed were: (1) increased exercise to at least 3x per week; (2) ingest avocado, fish and coconut oil instead of corn soy safflower peanut or olive oil; and (3) added Guggulbolic to my daily diet.
