Aged Garlic Extract™ is More Than Garlic
Garlic has been used medicinally for thousands of years. There are studies that show positive cardiovascular results with garlic intake but the volume of raw garlic needed to provide health benefits can be quite large. It is important to understand that there is a significant difference between “garlic” and “aged garlic extract.” Our aging process creates unique compounds and beneficial nutrients not present in raw or powered garlic.

The proprietary process used to create Kyolic Aged Garlic Extract (AGE) begins with garlic grown on certified organic farms. The raw garlic is harvested and then aged, without heating, up to 20 months in sealed stainless steel tanks. This unique aging process makes AGE much gentler on the stomach, eliminates the garlic odor, and results in safe, stable, bioavailable and beneficial compounds found only in Kyolic AGE products.

In addition to the Kyolic® line of aged garlic supplements, Wakunaga manufactures and markets a line of probiotics, a line of green superfood powdered drink mixes, and a unique immune balancing product.

Natural Products for Whole Body Health
The Kyo-Dophilus® Probiotics range features human-strain and multi-strain probiotics that are proven clinically effective, do not require refrigeration, and have guaranteed potency at the time of consumption. The line was recently rebranded with a bold new look and two new items were released. Kyo-Dophilus Fifty+ Probiotic is targeted for older adults to help restore microflora as we age.* Kyo-Dophilus Max Probiotic offers a higher potency of 50 billion CFU to support digestive systems stressed by travel or medication use.*

Kyo-Green® has been a trusted brand for more than 30 years. From the original Greens Blend that includes barley and wheat grasses, chlorella, and kelp to Harvest Blend and the new Sprouts Blend, the first young sprouted greens drink mix blend on the market, these powdered green mixes are ideal for consumers that want an easy way to add more green nutrition to their diet.

Moducare® is a unique immune balancing supplement with a patented blend of plant sterols and sterolins in a clinically-proven ratio of 100:1. Research has shown that this ratio provides the best immuno-modulating activity.*

Our Commitment to Science
The latest research using Kyolic AGE focused on the microcirculatory system that carries blood from blood vessels to the tissues. This is important since a compromised microcirculatory system limits blood flow to the site of wounds. As a result, wounds don’t heal as quickly as they should. According to one clinical trial conducted at Lund University’s Skåne University Hospital in Sweden, Kyolic Aged Garlic Extract (AGE) increased microcirculation blood flow by 31% compared to placebo in patients at-risk for heart disease or type 2 diabetes. After 12 months of supplementation, the researchers noted a significant improvement in microcirculation in the AGE group, especially in those with an increased risk of a cardiovascular event like heart attack or stroke. This led the researchers to suggest that increased microcirculation could facilitate wound healing.
