Find out how aged garlic extract supports cardiovascular health

Discover the health benefits of garlic without the odor!Garlic is a healthy choice

More and more Americans are discovering the healthy benefits of taking garlic supplements. Science is confirming the value of garlic and also proving that not all garlic supplements have the same effects.

Research on aged garlic extract

The research on Aged Garlic Extract is largely responsible for the worldwide explosive growth in garlic supplement usage. Research has shown that Kyolic Aged Garlic Extract helps improve circulation, blood pressure, cholesterol, homocysteine levels and many other cardiovascular risk factors. Kyolic has also been proven to enhance immune function and protect your cells from oxidation and aging.*

There are over 250 published peer-reviewed journal articles on these many topics.

Be careful which garlic product you choose. Garlic powders and oils are the result of heat processing that destroys the valuable water-soluble compounds you take garlic for. Aged Garlic Extract is the only garlic supplement standardized with 100% bioavailable active ingredients proven to be found in the bloodstream. Remember, if it's not bioavailable, it's not in the bloodstream, and it can't be effective.

Q: What specific kinds of research have been done on Kyolic?

A: Extensive research on Kyolic Aged Garlic Extract has been done for 50 years both at Wakunaga research laboratories in Japan and at many prestigious universities and research institutes around the world, resulting in over 300 peer-reviewed articles published in academic journals. Such clinical and pre-clinical studies focus on diversified beneficial effects of Aged Garlic Extract. Studies show the following effects:

Cardio-protection. Enhances circulation and reduces a wide range of cardiovascular risk factors
such as elevated homocysteine, serum cholesterol, triglycerides and platelet aggregation.*
Liver-detoxification. Protects liver by quickly eliminating toxic chemicals.*
Immune-enhancement. Enhances various essential immune factors such as macrophages,
T-lymphocyte, natural killer-cell activities and antibody generation.*
Protection from oxidants and radiation. Protects cells form oxidant injury and radiation damage.*
Anti-stress and anti-fatigue. Improves physical strength, and reduces stress and fatigue.*
Anti-aging and anti-depression. Improves memory function and
enhances nerve growth.*

Q: How does Aged Garlic Extract differ from other garlic supplements?

A: Aged Garlic Extract contains the stable, antioxidant, water soluble, sulfhydryl compounds that scientists focus on as the "Active Compounds" in raw garlic. For instance, in 1997 research at Memorial Sloan-Kettering Cancer Center at Cornell University and East Carolina University Medical School focused on a compound found only in Aged Garlic Extract called S-allyl mercaptocysteine (SAMC). SAMC demonstrated strong tumor inhibiting properties for prostate, colon and breast cancers. It should be noted that Aged Garlic Extract has shown greater tumor inhibiting effects than SAMC alone, demonstrating the synergistic effect of the many beneficial compounds found in Aged Garlic Extract.

Q: Why have researchers focused on Aged Garlic Extract in their research?

A: Consistency is very important for scientific research. Aged Garlic Extract is manufactured with an extraction process that offers consistent amounts of effective compounds. Simple dehydrated powders used in other garlic pills not only lack consistency but also are standardized with non-active compounds that actually are not present in the products you take. This lack of true standardization and inconsistency render these products far less acceptable than Aged Garlic Extract for research and therapeutic purposes.

Q: Many garlic products describe themselves as being standardized. What are the differences between those products?

A: Kyolic is standardized with S-allyl cysteine (SAC). This compound was chosen because it has been proven effective, safe and bioavailable. Various other products are standardized with compounds that are not bioavailable, are not present in the product, or are not even effective. It makes no scientific sense to market any botanical based on a marker compound that is not a chemical constituent of the garlic supplement or biologically active in the body. The SAC in Kyolic is both biologically active and present in the supplement itself. The very important difference separates Kyolic from all other garlic brands.

Q: What about products that claim allicin is their active ingredient?

A: Strangely, not one of these products actually contains allicin or delivers allicin to the blood or liver where garlic actives are measured. Obviously, if it can't be found in the body, it can't be an active ingredient. These products are the subject of recent negative media reports and should not be confused with the positive reports on Aged Garlic Extract.

Q: Of all garlic supplements available, why is Kyolic the best choice?

A: Kyolic is safe, effective, standardized and odorless so that you can take it everyday. The other types of garlic supplements are garlic oil and garlic powders, both of which are odoriferous and not consistently standardized. Kyolic Aged Garlic Extract is naturally processed from organically grown garlic under strict quality control in compliance with Good Manufacturing Practice (GMP) and ISO 9002 quality assurance procedures. The extraction process concentrates the medicinal essence of the herb. The aging process not only removes pungent garlic odor but also enhances the nutritional value of garlic and makes it gentle to the stomach. Actually, Kyolic Aged Garlic Extract is 50 times richer than raw garlic in active beneficial compounds.

Q: Is Kyolic truly odorless?

A: Yes. Kyolic Aged Garlic Extract is truly odorless because garlic odor is naturally deodorized during the aging process. In the case of dried garlic powder products, garlic odor is temporarily masked and eventually comes out through your breath or pores. And the safety of enteric-coated garlic powder tablets is not established. Garlic oil has a concentrated garlic odor.

Q: How should I take Kyolic?

A: Take Aged Garlic Extract preferably with a meal. Because Kyolic is so safe, it will not interfere with other supplements or medications. Please follow the suggested instructions on the label.
