Aged Garlic

While early research was focused on the effectiveness of garlic for lowering cholesterol, new research shows data on a specific extract of garlic, referred to as aged garlic extract (garlic that is aged over a prolonged period of time) with very promising results for protecting the arteries from injury associated with oxidative damage.

Naturally occurring oxidative processes within our body play an important role in aging and disease, including cardiovascular, neuro-degenerative, inflammatory diseases and cancer.

Aged garlic extract has been shown to protect arteries (through its antioxidant properties), meaning it stops the free radicals (unstable molecules) that can cause damage to the arteries. Often, when left unchecked free radicals can result in hardening of the arteries and heart disease.

Aged garlic extract has been shown to protect against oxidant-induced disease, acute damage from aging, radiation and chemical exposure, and long-term toxic damage.
