The fabled myrrh may fight cholesterol

by the Food and Drug Administration, Szapary said. My interest is to gather enough evidence to demonstrate whether a gugulipid extract is safe and effective, in the short term, for use by Americans with mild-to-moderately elevated cholesterol. His work with gugulipid, which began last spring, is designed to assess the drug through a simple, randomized study using 90 subjects.

Participants are divided into three groups; the first is administered a placebo, the second a standard dosage of gugulipid, and the third a higher dosage of the supplement. Each participant remains on the regimen for two months while blood tests indicate its effectiveness. Thus far 60 people have taken part.

The participants have uniformly felt like theyve been able to tolerate the medicine with few side effects, he said. The study -- which began prior to Szaparys grant from the NCCAM -- is funded in part by the General Clinical Research Center at Penn, which, in turn, is funded by the National Institutes of Health, and by the Sabinsa Corp., a manufacturer of gugulipid.

Editors note: Dr. Szapary has no financial interest in the Sabinsa corporation.
