Expanding on Expertise
The corporate philosophy of Wakunaga centers on a commitment to research and a mission to serve public health. This mission is accomplished by providing products of the highest quality, which are supported by truthful science and accompanied by helpful consumer information. Wakunaga has two nutritionists on staff available to answer consumer questions on a daily basis.

As a leader in the field of scientific research, Wakunaga has over 650 peer-reviewed scientific studies on Kyolic® Aged Garlic Extract™. At the end of 2010, the company completed four more scientific studies on Kyolic for heart health and immunity. These papers will be published in early 2011.

State-of-the-art manufacturing systems and stringent quality assurance following current good manufacturing practices and the International ISO9001 quality management system result in products that are safe and effective. In early 2011 Wakunaga will move into a brand new manufacturing plant, which will facilitate growth for the future.

With distribution in 46 countries worldwide, it is the company’s continuing mission to promote good health throughout the world. Wakunaga has been serving the world since 1972, and its parent company, Wakunaga Pharmaceutical Co., Ltd., in Japan, has been in business for more than 50 years.

Wakunaga’s main product is Kyolic for heart and immune health. Studies have proven Kyolic to enhance immune function, protect cells from free radical damage and support cholesterol and overall heart health. The production of Kyolic odorless Aged Garlic Extract begins with garlic grown on Wakunaga farms under strictly controlled organic conditions without the use of chemical fertilizers, herbicides or pesticides. Raw garlic is aged without heating up to 20 months in stainless steel tanks. This unique aging process, makes Kyolic up to 50 times richer in active beneficial compounds than raw garlic and is gentle on the stomach. This odor-eliminating conversion process results in the truly odorless Kyolic Aged Garlic Extract that contains safe, stable, bioavailable and beneficial compounds.

Another product from Wakunaga is Kyo-Dophilus®, human-strain, shelf-stable (no refrigeration needed) probiotics. The probiotics are guaranteed stable at the time of consumption, not at the time of manufacture. Also available is Kyo-Green for energizing and alkalizing (Harvest Blend and Kyo-Chlorella are additionally available in this category), as well as Moducare, plant sterols and sterolins to restore, strengthen and balance the immune system.
