A recent Australian RCT has reported the positive effects of aged garlic extract on hypertension and other cardiovascular health markers and age-related conditions.


The 12-week study, published in Frontiers of Nutrition, investigated the eects of daily intake of Kyolic Aged Garlic Extract or placebo on 49 hypertensive patients, measuring changes in their blood pressure, arterial stiness, inammatory markers and gut microbiota.
They then reported that in the group supplemented with Kyolic, mean blood pressure was signicantly reduced (10mmHg to 13.6mmHg systolic and 5.4mmHg to 7.7mmHg diastolic), compared to the placebo group.
Other positive eects observed in the supplemented group included improvements in arterial stiness, inammatory markers and gut microbiota.
