Ingredients

Grown with care

Garlic (allium sativum) has been valued since ancient Egyptian times. Today, many people still consider it one of nature's most valuable herbs  with its added natural benefit of producing Allicin – garlic’s active ingredient.

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. They are odour free and suitable for long-term use.

NEW Japanese Black Garlic

What is Black Garlic?

Black Garlic is aged, fermented garlic that has been used for thousands of years across Asia. We use Japanese garlic that has been grown to our strict standards, without using any artificial pesticides or sprays. The freshly picked garlic bulbs are fermented, allowing a complex series of chemical changes to occur. This creates Black Garlic which contains up to twice as many antioxidants as fresh garlic. The fermentation process is carefully controlled at every step to release a wide range of polyphenols, flavonoids and other micronutrients1.

 

Black Garlic is a natural source of Allicin, a potent natural antioxidant molecule that has been shown to reduce high cholesterol levels in studies. Allicin also has antimicrobial and antifungal properties – it’s this powerful molecule that’s believed to be behind many of garlic’s health-promoting effects2. Our garlic is only harvested when the micronutrient content of the garlic bulbs is at the optimum level for use in our supplements. Every tablet of Kwai Heartcare+ provides you with precisely 2,700μg of Allicin.

 

It’s estimated that nearly 40% of adults in the UK have high cholesterol levels. Having too much cholesterol in your bloodstream dramatically increases your risk of developing atherosclerosis and heart disease. Taking a Black Garlic supplement has been shown to reduce high cholesterol levels and alleviate high blood pressure in multiple scientific studies3,4,5.

 

Antioxidants help to protect our cells from free radicals – these are small unstable molecules that can damage our DNA and cells. When there aren’t enough antioxidants in our body, our cells can enter a state of oxidative stress. Over time, this stress can contribute to premature aging, diabetes, inflammatory bowel disease and other serious problems6. According to a recent study, supplementing a diet with black garlic could decrease oxidative stress and diabetes complications7. Kwai Heartcare+ with Japanese Black Garlic contains an abundance of natural antioxidants to help you live life to the fullest.

 

Vitamin B1 is an essential nutrient that our body needs to function correctly. Our bodies can’t produce this vital vitamin, so we need to consume it through our diet. Vitamin B1 contributes to normal heart function. Taking a Vitamin B1 supplement like Kwai Heartcare+ can help your heart, muscle and nerve cells work correctly.

 

What’s in Kwai Heartcare+?

Kwai Heartcare+ contains Japanese Black Garlic (450mg), Allicin (2,700μg) and Vitamin B1 (0.83mg). The unique formulation of Kwai Heartcare+ helps to maintain healthy cholesterol levels and maintain a healthy heart while also contributing to resistance against temporary stress.

We coat every Kwai Heartcare+ tablet 60 times, making this supplement 100% odourless and easy to swallow.

Vitamin B1

Vitamin B1, otherwise known as Thiamin, is found in some foods such as whole grains and legumes as well as some meat and fish.

Vitamin B1 is important in our diets as it helps the body's cells converted carbohydrates into energy. The main role of carbohydrates is to provide energy for the body, especially the brain and nervous system. Thiamin also plays a role in muscle contraction and the conduction of nerve signals.

A deficiency in Vitamin B1 can lead to problems with muscle weakness and cardiovascular symptoms such as an enlarged heart.

Vitamin B6 and B12

itamin B6, otherwise known as Pyridoxine, is a water-soluble vitamin that helps the body to use and store energy from protein and carbohydrates in food, and form haemoglobin, the substance in red blood cells that carries oxygen around the body. It is also claimed to help prevent clogged arteries and reduce the risk of heart
disease.

Vitamin B12, also known as Cobalamin, is also a water-soluble vitamin. It is involved the production of red blood cells, supporting a nervous system healthy, helping release energy from food. It is often linked with folate (folic acid) because both vitamins cannot be produced by the body and a deficiency can lead to different types of anaemia. A lack of vitamin B12 could lead to vitamin B12 deficiency anaemia. Vitamin B12 has also been linked in decreasing blood homocysteine which is associated with heart disease.

Iron

Iron is a mineral found in meat, beans, nuts, dried fruits and wholegrains and most dark-green leafy vegetables. Iron is important in making red blood cells, which carry oxygen around the body. A lack of iron can lead to iron deficiency anaemia.

Magnesium

Magnesium is a mineral found in the earth, the sea, plants, animals and most important humans! In fact, 60% of the magnesium in our bodies is in our bones, the remainder is in our muscles. Magnesium is a mineral that helps turn the food we eat into energy, and ensures that the parathyroid glands, which product hormones important for bone health, work normally.

Without a good magnesium intake our bodies cannot function correctly or cannot regulate muscle function.

The most important muscle in our bodies is the heart, and magnesium helps maintain a healthy rhythm, plus also it helps regulate our blood pressure and production of cholesterol.

Potassium

Potassium is mineral found in foods such as spinach, fruit, and potatoes. It is also an electrolyte that helps the body regulate fluids, nerve signals and muscle contractions, and ensures the heart muscle works properly.

Some scientific studies have also shown that potassium helps moderate blood pressure and heart rhythm.

A human body does not produce potassium, so it’s good to ensure our diets are rich in foods which have potassium or supplementation.

Zinc

Zinc a mineral present in some foods such as meat, shellfish, seeds, nuts and eggs. It is involved in some cellular metabolism, making new cells and enzymes, processing carbohydrate, fat and protein in food, and is a part of protein synthesis and immune function. Additionally, Zinc also effects the heart muscle and if the body is lacking Zinc, it can cause oxidative stress.
