Company Profile: Wakunaga of America Co.

Company Description
Since 1972, Wakunaga of America Co., LTD. has been promoting health and wellness to consumers throughout the world. It is a family-owned company that is committed to the research, development, manufacturing, and marketing of high quality medicinal herbs and nutrients. The company’s philosophy is centered on research and a mission to serve public health. This mission is brought to life in providing products of the highest quality, which are supported by truthful, unbiased science.

Leaders in Research
Wakunaga is a leader in the field of scientific research. There are over 800 peer-reviewed published papers on Kyolic® Aged Garlic Extract’s™ ability to lower cholesterol, slow plaque formation, reduce stress and enhance immune health. A new Australian study has found that Aged Garlic Extract (AGE) significantly reduces blood pressure in adults with hypertension, offering hope to those who don’t respond well to prescription medications or would prefer a natural therapy. In other recent research, eight studies published in the Journal of Nutrition report that Aged Garlic Extract (AGE) significantly reduces low-attenuation plaque, also known as soft plaque or non-calcified plaque, within the arteries of patients with metabolic syndrome. These findings add to a growing body of evidence that indicates AGE may reverse heart disease and has the ability to stabilize vulnerable plaque that can lead to a future heart attack or stroke.

Quality Manufacturing
Wakunaga products are produced in their state-of-the-art manufacturing facility located in California, USA. The facilities are current Good Manufacturing Practices (cGMP), Australian Therapeutic Goods Association (TGA), German Drug GMP, and ISO 9001:2015 certified. The dedication and adherence to stringent quality controls ensures that products are safe, precise, effective and of highest quality.

What is Aged Garlic Extract?
The production of Kyolic AGE begins with garlic grown on California farms under strictly controlled organic conditions without the use of chemical fertilizers, herbicides or pesticides. The raw garlic is harvested, cleaned, sliced and aged in ambient conditions for up to 20 months. This unique aging process makes AGE richer in active beneficial compounds than raw garlic and more gentle on the stomach. This odor-eliminating conversion process results in safe, stable, bioavailable and beneficial compounds found only in Kyolic Aged Garlic Extract products.
