Kyolic is built on scientific research. Collaborative research on Aged Garlic Extract™ (AGE) has been, and continues to be, developed extensively with universities, hospitals, and research institutes. To date, over 850 peer-reviewed research papers have been published that attest to the health benefits of Aged Garlic Extract™.
Cardioprotective Effects of AGE
Several studies have demonstrated the positive effect of AGE on cardiovascular health. AGE has been shown to inhibit plaque formation in the coronary artery, have lipid lowering effects, lower cholesterol, lower high blood pressure, increase circulation, and to have blood thinning effects. These effects indicate that AGE may play an important role in the prevention of cardiovascular disease.
Immune Enhancement Effects of AGE
AGE has been shown to have several positive effects on immune function. Several randomized, double-blind, placebo-controlled trials have demonstrated that consuming AGE daily increased natural killer (NK) cell activity and improved helper/suppressor T cell ratios when compared with the placebo groups.
A 2012 study by Nantz, Rowe, et al. demonstrated that after 90 days of consuming 2.56 g of AGE daily, the test group reported statistically significant reductions in cold and flu symptoms. The same studies also found that AGE was significantly more effective in producing such results than a comparable dose of raw garlic.
