Info: 180 Capsules of Formula 104 by Kyolic
Aged Garlic Extract has antioxidant activity which may protect against neuronal injury and damage to heart tissue. A relatively large body of evidence supports the ability of aged garlic extract to reduce blood pressure in humans. Unlike many methods that reduce blood pressure the tolerability of aged garlic extract is excellent. Lecithin and its main constituent, choline, are included because each is an important building block for all cell membranes which support cell health and function. Many studies suggest that Aged Garlic Extract and lecithin may help to maintain healthy cholesterol and homocysteine levels. Thus, this formulation may aid in maintaining healthy cholesterol levels and neuronal health through multiple mechanisms.
