We all want good science to validate the products we use. Dr. Matthew Budoff has completed four clinical studies on Aged Garlic Extract. I have interviewed him after each study and if you want to follow the evolution of this science, you can listen to all of those interviews here. You can follow Dr. Budoff’s journey from skeptic to confident proponent. The science and the results are compelling.
Here are excerpts from the Press Release.
“Supplementing with Kyolic Aged Garlic Extract can halt—and even reverse—the accumulation of deadly low-attenuation plaque in arteries. The amount of low attenuation, or “soft,” plaque in the arteries contributes to the development of atherosclerosis and predicts a future acute coronary event like a heart attack or stroke. Since cardiovascular disease is the No.1 killer in America, these findings provide potentially life-saving hope for millions of people.
The study involved 55 patients, aged 45 to 75 that had been diagnosed with metabolic syndrome. People with this condition are at an increased risk of cardiovascular disease. All of the participants were screened at the beginning of the study to measure total amount of arterial plaque as well as calcium deposits, non-calcified plaque, and low attenuation plaque.
After the initial screening, each of the participants was given either 2,400 mg of Kyolic Aged Garlic Extract or a placebo each day for 12 months. At the end of the study, the subjects were screened again. The Aged Garlic Extract slowed the accumulation of plaque by as much as 80 percent, reduced the amount of soft plaque, and showed a marked reversal of low-attenuation plaque among those taking the supplement.
I don’t know of any other natural product that has shown this clinically. If you listen to the series of interviews with Dr. Budoff, you will have the confidence to recommend Kyo
