Here are some frequently asked questions about Kwai health supplements, if you can't find what you are looking for or you have another question not listed here, please contact us.
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 Chinese 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 Klosterfrau 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.
