Anyone know anything about or have experience w/ guggulsterones?

They were suggested to me by a natural health practitioner due to a hormone imbalance that I have, but I'm wondering if there are long term effects that I should worry about. I haven't found much info about long term issues.

I honestly have read once that they would aid in weight loss...I only saw this becuase I went to the doc a few years ago about an issue I thought I had with thyroid and we were discussing different medications. I dont have issue it turns out (I was just chubby!), sorry not sure if this is much help.

I don't think there is really much long term info on the stuff.

It's suppose to stimulate the thyroid though. i've taken it before, I could definitely feel my body temperature rise. lol

There is ALOT of negative info out there about them if you check around. I've heard nothing but bad things to be honest. I know products that used to have them, have since taken them out.

Here's some info:

VITAL SIGNS: TESTING; Failing Grades for Herbal Items - New York Times

and here's one of the studies:

JAMA -- Abstract: Guggulipid for the Treatment of Hypercholesterolemia: A Randomized Controlled Trial, August 13, 2003, Szapary et al. 290 (6): 765

ETA: duh, I overlooked the longterm part. In any case, I'm sure there are other possible ways to go that are better researched.
