Guggul Formulations of Ayurveda are unique, as Guggul (Commiphora mukul resin) is a natural binder as well as an excellent medicine itself. There are many challenges in manufacturing high quality Guggul formulations. Traditionally the guggul formulations are made by rolling the pills by hands or by pill making machine. It would be appropriate to add some modern disintegrants while formulating guggul formulations by compression method so that we can reduce the disintegration time.
