Actually, there are four choices:Heat distilled garlic oil in softgelsHeat dehydrated garlic seasoning powder in capsules/tabletsGarlic oil maceratesKyolic odorless Aged Garlic Extract All garlic supplements have some nutritional value. However, powders and oils contain little or no water-soluble compounds which may be essential to obtain some of the key benefits of garlic . Garlic powders and oils contain some beneficial oil-soluble sulfur compounds. However, these compounds also have a pungent garlic odor as well as harsh, oxidizing side effects. Even though these products may claim to be deodorized, the garlic odor is just masked by chemical or sugar coatings. When the capsules or tablets dissolve, garlic body odor results.Kyolic odorless Aged Garlic Extract, on the other hand, is truly the only odorless garlic supplement. The exclusive aging process eliminates garlic odor and harsh side effects. Moreover, Kyolic contains various antioxidant properties and is the only antioxidant garlic supplement available. Kyolic Questions & AnswersWhat type of current research is being done with Aged Garlic Extract?Aged Garlic Extract is used in several university research projects annually. These studies have focused on aspects such as cholesterol, high blood pressure, homocysteine levels, immune stimulation, cognitive effects, and liver function effects. The results are published in peer-reviewed scientific journals.Why have researchers focused on Aged Garlic Extract in their research?Consistency is very important for scientific research. Ages Garlic Extract is manufactured with an extraction process that offers consistent amounts of effective compounds. Simple dehydrated powders used in other garlic pills not only lack consistency but are standardized with non-active compounds that actually are not present in the products you take. This lack of true standardization and inconsistency render these products far less acceptable than Aged Garlic Extract for research and therapeutic purposes.Many garlic products describe themselves as being standardized? What are the differences between those products?Kyolic is standardized with S-allylcysteine (SAC). This compound was chosen because it has been proven effective, safe and bioavailable. Various other products are standardized with compounds taht are not bioavailable, not present in the product, or are not even effective. It makes no scientific sense to market any botanical based on a marker compound that is not a chemical constituent of the garlic supplement or biologically active in the body. The SAC in Kyolic is both biologically active and present in the supplement itself. This very important difference separates Kyolic from all other garlic brands.What about products that claim allicin is their active ingredient?Strangely, not one of these products actually contain allicin or delivers allicin to the blood or liver where garlic actives are measured. Obviously, if it can't be found in the body, it can't be an active ingredient. These products are the subject of recent negative media reports that should not be confused with the positive reports on Aged Garlic Extract.How should consumers choose a garlic supplement?To be fully safe and effective, a garlic supplement should be an antioxidant and manufactured through an aged extraction process. Consumers should always be sure the product is standardized with SAC and manufactured under current Good Manufacturing Processes (GMP) established by the World Health Organization (WHO) as an international standard.About KyolicSince its establishment, the Wakunaga group of companies has been playing a unique role in promoting public health worldwide through the research, development, manufacturing and marketing of high quality medicinal herbs.

While modern medicinal technology is important and crucial to save lives from serious illnesses or injuries, it is essential to prevent diseases as much as possible. Under the current environment, where self-medication is promoted and "alternative" medicine is well accepted, medicinal herbs can be widely used to enhance the immune system and support the body's natural self-healing power to maintain good health.Both Wakunaga Pharmaceutical Company, the headquarters in Japan, and Wakunaga of America Company, the subsidiary in the United States, keenly recognizes the social responsibility of companies engaged in manufacturing pharmaceuticals and nutritional and herbal supplements.
