5 Health Benefits of Aged Garlic Extracts

Wednesday, 26 March 2014 09:29 PM EDT

Due to the antioxidant properties and rich sulfur content, garlic is used in the daily diet to maintain good health. Among the benefits of fresh garlic, the health benefits to the heart are the most crucial. Other benefits are its ability to treat cold symptoms, maintain proper cholesterol level, blood pressure, and the ability to prevent risk of cancer. However, because of its pungent odor, many people avoid garlic. Thus, a garlic substitute called aged garlic extract, which is rich in antioxidant properties and is odorless, is used. Garlic extract pills or capsules are dietary supplements that are an alternate source of garlic and have numerous health benefits, especially to the heart.

Health Benefits of Aged Garlic Extract Pills

The list of health benefits of AGE pills or alternate source of garlic are as follows.
  • Benefits to heart health: Aged garlic extract pills are effective in reducing about 67 percent of the risk factors in heart patients. Garlic extracts prevent the occurrence of clots in arterial walls and keep the heart and arteries healthy. Among other heart health benefits of AGE, studies show that these garlic substitute pills also help reduce homocysteine (a trigger responsible for heart attacks or strokes) by inhibiting the production of the hormone prostaglandin.
  • Cardiovascular health benefits: Aged garlic extract or AGE pills have cardiovascular beneficial properties including a property of lowing blood pressure and cholesterol level and thus preventing the risk of cardiovascular diseases.
  • Health benefits to the immune system/ increasing immunity: AGE pills increase the body’s immunity. Because of its antioxidant properties, garlic extract helps in reducing the attacks of bacteria and virus. Pills with alternate garlic sources also enhance various important immune factors including T-lymphocytes, NK cells, macrophages, and antibody production to help in creating a strong immune system, with enough strength to fight diseases.
  • Health benefits in reducing the risk of cancer: Aged garlic extracts also have an ability to prevent risks for cancer patients. AGE pills benefit the immune system, help in improving immunity in cancer patients, and thus aid in fighting many viral and bacterial infections common in the cancerous condition. As they have the ability to increase the activity of the NK cells in the body, they can also offer these health benefits to AIDS patients who need increased immunity.
  • Other health benefits of AGE pills: Capsules or pills of aged garlic extracts also have some other benefits to health, which include the preventing or treating cold symptoms, help in reducing weight, increasing memory, and improving nerve growth, along with relieving stress, physical pain, preventing fatigue etc.
