• Lowers blood cholesterol levels• Reduces platelet aggregation• Vasodilator• AntioxidantGarlic has now been shown to have a significant action in lowering the levels of cholesterol and triglycerides in the blood. At the same time, it reduces the level of low density lipoproteins (LDL) while increasing the levels of high density lipoproteins (HDL).
It is now recognised that the ratio of HDL to LDL is a very significant factor in arterial disease. LDL carries cholesterol to the tissues whereas HDL carries cholesterol back to the liver for metabolism and excretion.The relative amounts of HDL to LDL can thus determine whether cholesterol is broken down by the liver or deposited in tissues. As the HDL to LDL ratio increases, platelet aggregation and plasma viscosity decrease, leading to improved blood flow and a reduced tendency for clot formation.Garlic is also known to lower blood pressure and possesses antioxidant activity, protecting cell membranes from being damaged by free radicals. Vitamin E is also a powerful antioxidant which supports the action of Garlic.Hawthorn contains procyanidins which increase blood flow to the muscles of the heart and the extremities of the body through relaxation of the muscles in the wall of the arteries and arterioles. These substances also strengthen and stabilise the blood vessels, helping to prevent destructive changes taking place.Passiflora has a calming effect on the central nervous system.A.Vogel (Bioforce) Hawthorn-Garlic Complex• Conditions associated with arteriosclerosis• Angina• Intermittent claudication• High cholesterol levels• Mild hypertensionAlfred Vogel prized both Hawthorn and Garlic highly and wrote extensively about both herbs. Garlic’s usefulness has been catalogued back to antiquity and it is combined here with the pulp from the deep red fruit of the Hawthorn, one of the most familiar of hedgerow berries, and the beautiful Passiflora plant.Arteriosclerosis is commonly referred to as 'hardening of the arteries'. It Is a progressive condition which may be found in any artery although, most commonly, it is the circulation to the heart, the brain and the legs which are affected.Arteriosclerosis starts with the deposition of fat and cholesterol in an artery. This initiates the formation of a 'plaque' which thickens the artery, giving rise to a loss of elasticity in the vessel wall and an increase in blood pressure. At the same time the blood vessels become narrowed, reducing blood flow to vital organs.As the plaque increases in size, blood flow is reduced further and platelet clots may be formed.Many of the major risk factors in arteriosclerosis - diet, stress, personality type, exercise and smoking are controllable.A.Vogel (Bioforce) 100% Natural – 100% ReliableAt A.Vogel the cultivation and harvesting of herbal remedies as well as their production are transparent.

The uniqueness of A Vogel herbs
The herbs used to produce A.Vogel fresh herb tinctures and fresh herb tincture tablets are grown using a strict organic protocol, mainly in the fertile conditions of Roggwil, Switzerland. This allows the company to exert complete control over the cultivation of plants - from the time of planting through to harvesting. All the company's products are manufactured under Good Manufacturing Practice (GMP) protocols and control. Stringent quality control tests and checks are carried out throughout all the stages of growth and manufacture.
Seeds are collected each autumn to create the new stock of spring seedlings. These are planted out by hand in our organic fields where the Swiss climate is ideal for cultivating strong healthy plants.
