Did you know that it takes two years to make one bottle of Kyolic? The unique process used to age Kyolic results in a product that contains safe, stable, bioavailable compounds with antioxidant properties not found in other garlic supplements on the market.
The Aging Process
First, the organically-grown Wakunaga garlic is harvested and then carefully cleaned and sliced. Then, under strictly controlled conditions, the sliced garlic is stored in an aqueous ethanol solution and naturally cold-aged for up to 20 months.
Throughout this unique process, the harsh and unstable organosulfur compounds that are naturally found in garlic (such as allicin) are converted into more mild and beneficial compounds, including sulfur-containing amino acids that are primarily responsible for Kyolic’s health benefits. The aging process also increases the antioxidant capacity of the garlic and eliminates the garlic’s harsh odour.
