Kyolic odorless Aged Garlic Extract originates 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.
Choosing an appropriate garlic supplement can be a confusing process. Actually, there are four choices:
- heat distilled garlic oil in softgels,
- heat dehydrated garlic seasoning powder in capsules/tablets,
- garlic oil macerates and
- 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.
The unique aging process applied in manufacturing Aged Garlic Extract distinguishes Kyolic from other garlic products available on the market. First, the garlic cloves are cleaned and sliced. Then, under carefully controlled conditions, the sliced garlic is stored in a stainless steel tank and naturally aged, without heating, for up to twenty months. Through this unique process, the harsh and unstable organosulfur compounds are converted into mild and effective compounds, including the sulfur-containing amino acids that are responsible for Kyolic’s health benefits. This conversion eliminates odor-causing components, resulting in the truly odorless Kyolic Aged Garlic Extract that contains safe, stable, bioavailable and beneficial compounds.
