Description: Garlic (Allium sativum) is mentioned for its curative powers as far back as the Bible and the Talmud, as well as in writings by many Roman and Greek historian/philosophers, including Hippocrates and Pliny the Elder.
The active component of garlic is a sulfur compound called allicin, which is produced when the garlic clove is broken. Allicin, in turn, becomes ajoene, allyl sulfide, and vinyldithiin.1
Among garlic’s known benefits are its ability to support the cardiovascular system’s health,2 its action as an antioxidant,3 and its antibacterial powers.4 Warm garlic oil applied in the ear has been shown effective in treating mild ear infections. Garlic taken regularly is also effective in reducing the risk of stomach and colon cancers.5
Contrary to commonly held opinion, garlic’s strong flavor is actually enjoyed by breastfeeding children;6 it is not certain, however, how much of garlic’s medicinal power is transmitted via breastmilk.
Natural Sources: Increasing the amount of garlic used in cooking will offer many of the effects of a garlic supplement.

Contraindications: Patients with bleeding disorders or who are taking anti-coagulants (warfarin, coumadin, pentoxifylline)should consult with a doctor before using a garlic supplement.

Garlic Capsules (200 capsules/bottle)- The unique aging process which KYOLIC undergoes results in an odorless, non-irritating, and safe garlic product. A cascade of chemical reactions take place during aging which cause some key compounds in raw garlic to increase significantly, while naturally changing harsh, odorous and irritating compounds into much milder, gentler non-odorous compounds. Aging generates a physically acceptable and sociably preferable form of garlic. Further, more than 100 scientific studies have been conducted on this unique extract and its constituents and have validated both its usefulness and safety.
