Aged Garlic for Heart Health

Aged garlic extract is a concentrated form of garlic that has been shown in studies to help reduce the risk of cardiovascular disease by lowering some common risk factors.1   Risk factors for heart disease include high cholesterol, high blood pressure, and high homocysteine levels in the blood.

Kyolic Aged Garlic Extract™ is 50 times richer
than raw garlic in active beneficial compounds.

Aged garlic extract (AGE) provides the same health benefits of fresh garlic, but without the strong garlic smell.   Garlic cloves are cleaned, sliced, and then stored in stainless steel tanks to age naturally for up to 20 months. The process intensifies the antioxidant levels compared to fresh garlic.

Lowers Cholesterol

Aged garlic extract helps to reduce the production of cholesterol in our body and lowers the bad LDL cholesterol in a similar way to statins. Therefore, AGE can reduce the risk for developing heart disease by reducing plaque build-up in the arteries.

Improves Blood Circulation

Good blood circulation is important for heart health because having adequate blood flowing to the heart allows the heart muscle to deliver sufficient amounts of oxygen and nutrients to the body. Aged garlic extract can help inhibit arterial plaque formation to help reduce high blood pressure and improve blood circulation.

Lowers Homocysteine Levels

Homocysteine is an amino acid found primarily in red meat. High levels of homocysteine in the blood has been linked to a higher risk of heart attack and stroke.

A study conducted on rats with elevated homocysteine levels in their blood resulted in a 30% reduction in their total homocysteine concentration when given aged garlic extract.2

Other Health Benefits

Aged garlic extract provides other health benefits aside from heart protection, such as boosting immune function, detoxifying the liver, and protecting the body from oxidant stress.
