From the information at "... Traditionally used to treat arthritis, obesity, and other disorders, guggul has been shown to lower cholesterol and triglycerides and to stimulate thyroid activity in a few small studies... "
"... Guggul Adverse Reactions - Adverse GI effects have been reported... "

I did a quick search on the internet and it seems that guggul should be avoided in patients with irritable bowel syndrome.

It sounds like it would be safer not to take it. free discount card
