For over 30 years, Canadians have trusted Kyolic® odorless Aged Garlic Extract™ (AGE) supplements to help take control of their heart health – naturally.

Kyolic® Aged Garlic Extract™ is clinically proven to:
–    Support a healthy cardiovascular system
–    Promote cholesterol reduction when used in combination with dietary measures
–    Reduce the risk of cardiovascular disease by helping to lower elevated blood lipid levels

Cardiovascular diseases are the leading cause of death among Canadian men and women.  An active lifestyle, a balanced diet, and Kyolic® Aged Garlic Extract™ (AGE) can each play an important role in supporting a healthy heart and reducing the risk of cardiovascular disease.

Over 650 research studies demonstrate the effectiveness of Kyolic® Aged Garlic Extract™

The benefits of Kyolic® AGE have been demonstrated in over 650 published peer-reviewed scientific research studies. One recent study, conducted at the University of California at Los Angeles (UCLA), demonstrated improved heart health with the use of Kyolic® AGE in high-risk cardiology patients. During this year-long, double-blind, placebo-controlled, randomized clinical trial, UCLA cardiologists made numerous stunning observations. Among them, AGE slowed the progression of calcified plaque in the arteries by more than 65% compared with placebo, and it reduced homocysteine, blood pressure and LDL (bad) cholesterol levels. Researchers also concluded that AGE can be used safely in combination with routine medications, such as statins, potentially enhancing treatment.

While Aged Garlic Extract™ can increase the cholesterol-lowering effects of statins, AGE taken alone also promotes cholesterol reduction – without the side effects of fatigue and muscle pain experienced by some individuals when taking statins.*

How is Kyolic® Aged Garlic Extract™ different from other garlic supplements?

Kyolic® AGE is the only truly odourless garlic supplement available on the Canadian market. The certified organic garlic used to make Kyolic® AGE is grown on carefully selected farms under strictly controlled conditions – without the use of chemical fertilizer, herbicides or pesticides. Once harvested, the garlic undergoes a proprietary aging process that converts the harsh, unstable organosulfur compounds found in raw garlic into mild and effective substances. These substances include the sulfur-containing amino acids and Maillard reaction products (powerful antioxidants) that are responsible for Kyolic®’s health benefits. This conversion process is what eliminates the odour-causing components, resulting in a truly odourless product that is effective, stable, bioavailable and full of beneficial compounds.

What is lecithin?

Lecithin is a lipid (or fat) that is naturally found in both plant and animal tissue. It is a major component of cell membranes and plays a key role in the metabolism of fats and cholesterol, preventing their inappropriate deposition in tissues such as the inner artery walls, liver, kidneys, brain and other organs.

Lecithin provides the body with phosphatidylcholine, essential fatty acids, choline, inositol and phosphatides. Studies suggest that its main constituent, choline, assists in maintaining healthy cholesterol levels.

While it can be extracted from a variety of different sources, the lecithin used in Kyolic® Formula 104 is naturally sourced from soy beans.

The Kyolic® Formula 104 Difference

Kyolic® Formula 104 includes 300 mg of Aged Garlic Extract™ 3:1 bulb extract (900 mg dried equivalent) plus 190 mg lecithin. In addition to the cardiovascular benefits of Kyolic® AGE, studies suggest that the compounds in lecithin may also assist in maintaining healthy cholesterol levels. Taken in combination, Kyolic® AGE and lecithin provide dual support, making Kyolic® Formula 104 an excellent choice for anyone striving to reduce or maintain healthy levels of cholesterol.

Testimonials:

Dr. Daniel J. Crisafi, PhD, MH, Montreal, Quebec
“No other supplement can claim the effects of AGE with the support of respectable researchers in major universities. As I often tell my patients, as I near fifty and as one who has battled cancer, if I had to take just one supplement a day, it would be aged garlic.”

Dr. Matthew Budoff, MD, FACC, UCLA Medical Center
“As a supplement to statins, aged garlic can provide dual cholesterol benefit with both an LDL-lowering and HDL-raising effect.”
