Cardiovascular Benefits of Garlic

Medical research in human populations has consistently found that chronic inflammation has been linked to increased risk for cardiovascular disease as well as other illnesses.

Scientists at Sweden's Skane University Hospital and Lund University recently found that a daily dose of Kyolic Aged Garlic Extract (AGE) effectively reduced two key inflammatory biomarkers (interleukin-6 (IL-6) and C-Reactive Protein (hs). These markers have been found to be closely associated with the development and progression atherosclerosis.

The Sweden study was further confirmed by Dr. Mathew Budoff, a cardiologist and professor of medicine at UCLA. Dr. Budoff, stated that AGE is further proof showing multi-factorial improvement in inflammation and having the potential to improve clinical outcomes of atherosclerosis and heart disease

The Swedish researchers also have found that AGE had additional positive clinical findings. These include:

  • AGE increased blood flow through the tiny capillaries that feed the tissues in the body's extremities which would aid in wound healing in those suffering from atherosclerosis and other vascular diseases.

  • AGE inhibits the progression of plaque formation in those who already suffer from cardiovascular disease. 

  • AGE lowered glucose levels 

  • AGE reduced the number of colds by a whopping 63%. 

  • AGE lowered blood pressure. One study showed that taking 600-1,500 milligrams of AGE was just as effective as the hypertension drug atenolol in reducing blood pressure over a 24-week period.

  • AGE has the potential to reduce dementia risk.
