Aged Garlic Reduces Plaque

Doctor Recommended

A friend of ours recently visited a doctor specializing in hypertension prevention/treatment and was surprised when the doctor recommended garlic. But not just any garlic; he recommended Kyolic Aged Garlic Extract, Cardiovascular formula.

We’ve long known garlic has studies showing it can be beneficial for reducing high blood pressure, improving cholesterol and inhibiting the progression of coronary artery calcification, all benefits that can reduce risk of cardiovascular disease. But when we heard about this doctor’s specific recommendation, we went looking for more information. Turns out researchers at L.A. BioMed studied this aged garlic product and published their findings in the Journal of Nutrition. The results? Aged garlic not only inhibits the progression of calcified plaques, it reversed the buildup of non-calcified (soft) plaque! Wow!

Given that heart disease remains the No. 1 killer in the United States, it’s no surprise then that we promptly stocked up our shelves with Kyolic Cardiovascular Extra Strength Reserve! Now you can stock your shelves, too! (You can read more about the study here and see an abstract of the original study here.)
