Lowering high cholesterol with garlic *
Perhaps you have seen the TV commercial with a barber shop full of men
discussing lowering high cholesterol. One of the men states he is not concerned
because he takes a lot of garlic. The woman in the commercial authoritatively
interrupts and states that scientific studies show no link between garlic
and lowering cholesterol. All the men agree with her and decide to follow
her advise and consider taking a drug instead.
Is the lady's advise right or wrong? Has she shattered a myth concerning the link between lowering high cholesterol and taking garlic? The correct answer is yes and NO! It's yes if she is talking about eating raw garlic or taking a conventional garlic supplement. The fact is there is no substantial scientific link between lowering cholesterol and eating raw garlic or taking conventional garlic supplements.
She is, however, dead wrong if she is considering Kyolic's A.G.E. Aged Garlic Extract. Kyolic AGE aged garlic extract is raw and organic but it is nothing like the raw garlic you eat or the garlic found in virtually all of the other garlic supplements in todays market place. Kyolic A.G.E. aged garlic extract is totally unique among garlic supplements and it is the only garlic supplement currently scientifically proven to help reduce cholesterol.
The credibility that garlic is enjoying today is to a large extent due to the research of over 580 scientific studies that have been done on certified organic Kyolic ® Aged Garlic Extract ™ and its constituents - not fresh garlic or garlic powder supplements.
Medical researchers discovered that no other garlic supplement can claim it helps to reduce cholesterol and offer such a broad range of additional health promoting benefits. Grown organically, and transformed into a potent department of defense by a treasured 22 month cold water aging process, Kyolic's AGE aged garlic extract offers scientifically proven cholesterol lowering health benefits.
Not only does Kyolic Aged Garlic Extract help reduce cholesterol, it also improves numerous other cardiovascular risk factors. Kyolic garlic significantly improves blood circulation, sparks and supercharges your immune system, protects your DNA from the mayhem of free radical destruction and helps your cells function more efficiently. Kyolic A.G.E. Aged Garlic Extract enhances your health, energy, and endurance. This makes Kyolic's garlic the most important and uniquely powerful garlic supplement in the world.
Kyolic's Aged Garlic Extract is the only garlic nutritional supplement to receive a U.S. Patent for lowering homocysteine, a cardiovascular risk factor marker more important than lowering cholesterol. Kyolic is the only garlic supplement proven to activate phase 2 enzymes - thus protecting the cells from potential carcinogens.
The question is, how does Kyolic's garlic stack up against the statin drug, aspirin and placebos for lowering cholesterol?
The answer came in a double blind placebo controlled 1 year study at UCLA Harbor School of Medicine by Dr. Matthew J. Budoff an Associate Professor of Medicine, Director of Cardiac Computed Tomography (CT). Dr. Budoff has conducted extensive research over the years using coronary calcium screening to identify those patients at high risk for cardiac events, progression of coronary calcium and non-invasive CT angiography. He has published over 200 articles and book chapters on these topics. He was recently named one of the top doctors for men in 2007, and listed as a Los Angeles Super Doctor by his peers. In addition to his many titles, Dr. Budoff is a Fellow of the American College of Cardiology and the American Heart Association.
How do you turn a garlic skeptic into a garlic believer? Dr. Budoff’s clinical study on cholesterol lowering garlic tells it all.
Kyolic Aged Garlic was proven more effective than the statin, aspirin and placebos in all of the following categories;
1. 8 times more effective at inhibiting coronary calcification.
A study in the New England Journal of Medicine, funded by the National Institute's of Health, involved more than 6,400 people nationwide - disclosed that participants with a moderate amount of calcium buildup in their arteries had a seven times greater risk of heart disease than people with no deposits. And people with a large build-up had a 10 times greater risk. Coronary calcium reduction prevents additional heart attack risk.
2. 4.5 times more effective in lowering homocysteine.
3. 3 times more effective in increasing HDL levels (the good cholesterol).
4. 17 times more effective in preventing the oxidation of LDL.
5. 17 times more effective in lowering LDL levels (the bad cholesterol).
Kyolic garlic lowered total cholesterol without any side effects - just side benefits.
Dr. Budoff’s clinical study involved half of his heart patients taking the statin, aspirin, and a placebo while the other half took the statin, aspirin and Kyolic. The results speak for themselves. Kyolic made the difference in lowering the risk of heart disease - not the statin and aspirin! Dr. Budoff now says, "Take Aged Garlic Extract, it may save your life!"
Kyolic garlic also increased the production of an endothelial relaxing factor, a cellular nitric oxide that improves endothelial function and helps reduce hypertension. In a randomized double-blind placebo controlled trial, 15 men with coronary artery disease were treated with 2.4 grams of aged garlic extract a day for 2 weeks or a placebo. The aged garlic treatment resulted in an increase in endothelial function (44% increase in dilation and blood flow) compared to the placebo. Thus indicating that a treatment with aged garlic extract can improve cholesterol levels and impaired endothelial function in men with coronary artery disease treated with aspirin and statin.
The condition of our cells and the efficacy in which they carry on their tasks, determines to a great degree our good health. And, most major degenerative disease is the result of damage or changes to our cells.

The biggest myth concerning garlic supplements and lowering cholesterol is the allicin myth. Until recently medical scientists mistakenly believed that the effective sulphur compound in garlic was allicin. This turned out to be "Allicin in Wonderland", pure fiction. Despite the tidal wave of "no allicin" evidence, most garlic supplement producers still carry a label boasting about this substance in their products.
What a red-faced, ethical embarrassment! Many of these garlic supplement companies claim allicin as the active ingredient in garlic to lower cholesterol, but the fact is not one of them contains allicin or delivers allicin to the blood. Allicin is oxidative, unstable, and not bioavailable, it cannot be an active ingredient in garlic supplements and it certainly can not lower cholesterol. Allicin content in garlic is pure advertising hype, not scientific fact.
Allicin disappears shortly after garlic is crushed as many authorities have found, and is not bio-available in the human body. In a major court trial, The British Advertising Authority ruled that there is no detectable allicin in any garlic supplement.
The allicin myth persists as does the myth that eating raw garlic or taking garlic supplements made from simple garlic powder can lower cholesterol.
