Garlic

Garlic has long been used in traditional health care. Modern garlic formulations have permitted stabilization of important precursor biochemicals while simultaneously reducing odor. Karuna Garlic is a stable source of alliin, which is converted to the active form allicin in the intestine and absorbed into circulation. Garlic has a host of benefits for the cardiovascular system including support for normal blood lipids, blood pressure, platelet function, preventing LDL oxidation, and stabilizing vessel walls. Garlic also has antimicrobial activity and supports optimal immune function.

  • Garlic, especially when used as a standardized concentrate, has a favorable effect on blood lipids (Ann Int Med 1993;119:599-605), blood pressure (J Hyperten 1994;12:463-8) and platelet function (Arzneim-Forsch Drug Res 1993;43:119-22), and has been associated with long-term protection of the carotid arteries and aorta (Atherosclerosis 1999;144:237-49; Circulation 1997;96:2649-55).
  • Several components found in garlic supplements improve the resistance of LDL cholesterol to oxidation (J Nutr 2001;131:985S-8S).
  • In vitro and animal studies suggest garlic has antimicrobial activity against potential intestinal pathogens such as Candida albicans and Helicobacter pylori (J Nutr 2001;131: 1106S-8S; Mycologia 1977;69:341-8; Br Vet J 1980;136:448-51).
  • Garlic possesses properties that help optimize immune system and cellular defense functions (Environ Health Perspect 2001;109:893-902; Adv Ther 2001;18:189-193).

Suggested use for adults: One capsule daily, or as directed.

CAUTION: Consult your healthcare professional prior to use if you have or suspect a medical condition, are taking prescription drugs, or are pregnant or lactating.
