Himalaya Herbal Healthcare’s Abana Tablets are consumed by innumerable patients with high cholesterol/ triglycerides and hypertension. You can go through the entire list of benefits they have, but what makes this ayurvedic medicine for cholesterol so effective at improving heart health? It’s the composition.
Today, we discuss two main ingredients of this herbal medicine, and their health benefits.
Shuddha Guggulu – Guggul is made using the sap, i.e. the gum resin of the Commiphora mukul tree. The tree is also known by a variety of names, like, Commiphora wightii, Mukul myrrh tree or simply, Guggul. It is native to India, and is being used in ayurvedic medicines for centuries now. It’s been used to treat diseases & conditions such as high cholesterol, arthritis, atherosclerosis (Actually Ayurvedic records dating back to 600 BC prescribe it for treating the narrowing of arteries!) and acne. It is also said to burn fat.
Guggulu lowers cholesterol and triglycerides.
‘Shuddha’ means pure. Hence, shuddha guggulu is guggulu that has been purified and its impurities removed. The process of purification also makes it fit for use in herbal medicines.
Arjuna – Scientifically Terminalia arjuna, this tree is simply called Arjuna, or Arjun in English, though it has other names in regional languages too. Found in India and Bangladesh, it was introduced by Vagbhata, one of Ayurveda’s classical writers, to treat heart disease. Used since the 7th century, it is also beneficial in angina. (Chest pain or pressure/ discomfort, caused by the reduced blood flow to the heart muscle.) Its cardioprotective properties regulate blood pressure. Like the previous ingredient, this too helps with atherosclerosis. It reduces fatty acids and cholesterol in the blood (Collectively known as ‘lipids’.), hence managing the narrowing of arteries due to fatty deposits.
In ancient times its bark was ground and used. Its liquid extract is also used.
Remember, these are the key ingredients of Himalaya Abana. It contains numerous other ingredients such as ashvagandha and shilajeet, which are a blessing to good cardiac health.
And now you know why Abana Tablets are so effective at reducing bad cholesterol and improving good cholesterol.
