The medicinal properties of garlic have been known for centuries, with antifungal, antibacterial, antioxidation, detoxification, tumour suppression and the prevention of heart disease as some of the well-established benefits of garlic ingestion/supplementation. Hippocrates, widely known as the “father of medicine,” prescribed garlic to treat wounds, fight infection, and ease digestive disorders. In relation to heart disease, garlic has been evidenced to improve blood cholesterol profiles and decrease blood coagulability.
"Kyolic" garlic is an aged garlic extract wherein garlic is harvested, cleaned, and sliced before being placed in specialized stainless steel containers where it is aged without heat for up to 20 months. The extract is then filtered and concentrated at low temperature.
