What is aged garlic extract?
A: To make AGE, cleaned and sliced garlic cloves are stored in stainless steel tanks and naturally aged, without heating, for up to 20 months. This aging process allows certain nutrients to convert into an active form. This bioconversion changes unstable organosulphur compounds (that can cause stomach upset with increased consumption) into milder and more effective compounds like S-allylcysteine and S-allylmercaptocysteine and an odourless aged garlic extract.
AGE benefits heart health through its help in reducing three risk factors that can increase the risk of heart disease: high blood pressure, high LDL (bad) cholesterol levels, and overall inflammation levels.
In addition to heart health benefits, AGE may also enhance the immune system. AGE, when taken daily, may help reduce cold and flu symptom severity, the number of symptoms, and also decrease the number of days you perform at less than your best due to illness.
