This has only marginal relevant to heart valves, but I've been reading about how to slow down the train wreck of cardiovascular disease that my heart is headed for with a calcium score of 156 at age 42. That puts me in the worst 1% for this test, which is one of the surest indicators of future heart attacks.

Your calcium score increases by 10-20% every year, which means big trouble for me by the time I turn 60 and have a score over 1000 (which indicates a roughly 25% chance of a heart attack PER YEAR).

I've read that you can lower your coronary calcium progression by taking aged garlic extract. I was wondering if anyone here has heard of this. You seem like a group of people who are pretty conscious of heart health and treatments.

Anyone ever hear of this?

I know nothing about garlic extract but my wife and I routinely use fresh cloves or garlic powder with many of our meals. I haven't found any noticeable interaction with my warfarin/INR.....if used as a flavor enhancer. I would check with my doc before using garlic as a dietary supplement.

I've read some things about vitamin k2 helping to stop, and possibly reverse, calcification of arteries and soft tissue.
