Hence Rasayana guggulu can be used prolonged.

Guggul has very subtle and penetrating qualities and because of this is considered a yogavahi, meaning that it is often employed specifically to carry other substances deep into the tissues.1 Further, its combination with other herbs actually lends direction to its powerful detoxifying and rejuvenating qualities. Guggul pacifies vata, pitta, and kapha, though it is especially renowned for alleviating vata aggravations.1 In general, guggul has an affinity for all of the tissues in the body as well as the circulatory, digestive, nervous, and respiratory systems.1 Guggul is very scraping, which enables it to clear toxins from the tissues and channels while rejuvenating them.1 In fact, it is this scraping quality that gives guggul a number of its beneficial attributes.
