Frequently Asked Questions
How long can Kwai Garlic food supplements be taken for?
There are no restrictions for how long you can take Kwai Garlic tablets.
What is allicin?
Garlic cloves contain two important substances - an amino-acid called alliin and an enzyme called alliinase. They are separated from one another in the garlic clove and they do not come into contact until the clove is crushed or cut. When they come together they produce allicin. It is allicin that is believed to be important for helping to maintain a healthy heart.
Why take Kwai Garlic rather than fresh garlic?
Kwai Garlic is made from organically grown garlic cloves, which contain the greatest concentration of allin. The cloves are thickly sliced, then slowly dried, avoiding the use of heat. When garlic is cooked or heated to produce garlic oil, most of the allin is destroyed.
The drying process that Precision Healthcare uses gives each tablet a consistently high level of allin, which is converted into allicin in the digestive system.
Every Kwai Garlic tablet contains a concentrated, standardised 300mg of dried garlic powder, yielding 1800µg of allicin. Absolute accuracy means you can be confident you will get this same dose every time.
Each tablet is also coated 60 times to be odour free.
Should I consult a doctor before I start taking Kwai Garlic?
You are advised to consult your doctor if you are taking anticoagulants and / or antihypertensives as Kwai Garlic tablets may affect the way these medicines work.
Have any side effects ever been reported?
A few cases of gastrointestinal complaints have been reported. As these were dose-related, it is recommended that Kwai Garlic tablets should not be taken on an empty stomach.
Why take Black Garlic?
NEW formula Kwai Heartcare + Japanese Black Garlic contains up to twice the dosage of antioxidants found in normal garlic and is rich in amino acids. It helps maintain healthy cholesterol levels and contributes to resistance against temporary oxidative stress. It also contains Vitamin B1 which contributes to normal heart function.
What else can I do to help protect myself against heart disease?
There are a number of simple measures you can take to help reduce your risk of developing heart disease. These include keeping your weight under control, eating a healthy diet and taking regular exercise. Don’t smoke and keep your alcohol intake within Government guidelines of 14 units per week, which is equivalent to 6 pints of beer of 6 medium (175ml) glasses of wine. Manage your stress levels through exercise and/or relaxation or mindfulness techniques. Taking a heart heath supplement such as Kwai Heartcare, Kwai Blood Pressure or NEW Kwai Heartcare+ Japanese Black Garlic can also help you maintain a healthy heart and cholesterol levels.
Why are Kwai Tablets odourless?
One of the reasons people often given for not taking garlic supplements to help prevent heart disease and manage cholesterol levels is the smell! Restassured that the unique manufacturing process used to produce the Kwai range of products means that each tablet is coated 60 times which means that there is no danger of smelling like a clove of garlic!
