Aged Garlic Extract for Inflammation
Between 1980 and 2004, more of half of Americans were among the billion people worldwide who had become overweight or obese. As of 2017, the United States tips the scales with the most overweight or obese people.

Our bodies were designed to eat when we are hungry, storing excess food for lean times. We don’t have lean times as a general rule in the United States. This leads to bodies storing more fat than the body can use. Some folks are genetically predisposed to weight issues. Others may have a very slow metabolism.

Many diseases are linked with diabetes: blood pressure, cholesterol, diabetes, and heart disease. Active fat cells produce a lot of the inflammation that causes these diseases.

Garlic can reduce inflammation in the body. Aged garlic extract supplements are an option for those who are concerned about smelling of garlic. Healthy individuals can take two Kyolic tablets per day. Those with chronic inflammation can take up to four tablets per day.

Listen as Dr. Matthew Budoff joins Dr. Susanne Bennett to discuss inflammation and how garlic can help.
