Sthaulya is a predominant metabolic disorder. It is described by Acharya Charaka in Ashtaunindita Purusha . In the present Study Navaka guggulu is taken for Clinical trial which is referred from Bhaishajya Ratnawali DQ Medoroga Chikitsa( 39/43). It mainly contains drugs like Sunthi, Marich Pippali, Chitraka, Haritaki, Bibhitaki, Amalaki, Musta, Vidanga and Shuddha guggulu. Almost all the drugs are having Katu rasa, laghu ruksha guna, Ushna veerya, Katu vipaka and Kapha Vata Shamaka properties which may be helpful in disintegrating the Samprapati of Sthaulya. Navaka guggulu showed encouraging results in reduction of weight, skin fold thickness, body circumference and associated signs and symptoms.
