CONTEXT Gum guggul, a resinous exudate of the plant Commiphora mukul Engl. (Burseraceae), has been found efficacious in the treatment of bone fractures, arthritis, and hyperlipidemic disorders. OBJECTIVE The present study is an effort to explore the anti-bone-resorptive potential of the dried methanol extract of the gummy exudate of C. mukul (MECM) in ovariectomized rat model. MATERIALS AND METHODS The animals were randomly divided into five groups of equal size (n = 6). Animals in all the… CONTINUE READING
