How does it work?
Garlic produces a chemical called allicin. This is what seems to make garlic work for certain conditions. Allicin also makes garlic smell. Some products are made “odorless” by aging the garlic, but this process can also make the garlic less effective. It’s a good idea to look for supplements that are coated (enteric coating) so they will dissolve in the intestine and not in the stomach.
Garlic has been used therapeutically in many cultures for thousands of years. With its high concentration of sulfur-containing compounds, garlic has consistently demonstrated an ability to support immune function, cardiovascular health and provide antioxidant protection.
† Many of garlic’s biological effects are thought to be related to allicin and other related compounds. Our standardized garlic powder is equal to one-half bulb of fresh garlic and in addition to its allicin yield contains all the naturally occurring sulfur compounds (thiosulfinates and gamma-glutamylcysteines) which are inherent to this herb. Each tablet is enteric coated for odor control and to avoid stomach acids which can cause allicin decomposition.
