Kyolic® originated from time-tested organic farming techniques free from pesticides, herbicides and chemical fertilizers. Organic cultivation is essential to grow pure and natural garlic bulbs which are well balanced in nutrients. Harvested at full maturity, the garlic cloves are naturally aged to convert harsh and odoriferous compounds such as allicin, into mild, odorless and stable water-soluble sulfur containing compounds which offer the benefits of garlic.Kyolic is quality assured from soil to shelf. The whole production process of Kyolic is controlled by over 250 stringent quality checks to ensure its safety and efficacy, conforming to international GMP (Good Manufacturing Practice) guidelines. Additionally, Wakunaga has earned the distinctive ISO 9002 certification, recognizing compliance to the international quality standard and demonstrating the company’s commitment to total quality assurance.
Choosing an appropriate garlic supplement can be a confusing process. Actually, there are four choices:
1. heat distilled garlic oil in softgels,
2. heat dehydrated garlic seasoning powder in capsules/tablets,
3. garlic oil macerates and
4. Kyolic® odorless Aged Garlic Extract™.
All garlic supplements have some nutritional value. However, powders and oils contain little or no water-soluble compounds which may be essential to obtain some of the key benefits of garlic. Garlic powders and oils contain some beneficial oil-soluble sulfur compounds. However, these compounds also have a pungent garlic odor as well as harsh, oxidizing side effects. Even though these products may claim to be deodorized, the garlic odor is just masked by chemical or sugar coatings. When the capsules or tablets dissolve, garlic body odor results.
Kyolic odorless Aged Garlic Extract, on the other hand, is truly the only odorless garlic supplement. The exclusive aging process eliminates garlic odor and harsh side effects. Moreover, Kyolic contains various antioxidant properties and is the only antioxidant garlic supplement available.
Kyolic is also standardized with SAC (S-Allyl Cysteine), a beneficial water-soluble sulfur containing compound which is characteristic of Aged Garlic Extract.
