Allicin Plus - 200mg 60sg
Allicin Plus by Seeking Health provides 200 mg of a specialized garlic oil blend, standardized to 10% active garlic compounds: diallyl sulfide, diallyl disulfide, diallyl trisulfide, and ajoene. Each softgel is enteric coated and contains parsley seed oil to help combat the garlic odor associated with most garlic supplements. Garlic may help support the body’s natural antioxidant defense system as well as immune, circulatory and cellular health.
The flavor-imparting and health-promoting benefits of garlic in cooking as well as traditional medicine have been embraced for centuries by cultures around the world. Recently, garlic and its active constituents have been the subject of many scientific studies and clinical trials. Though the chemical composition of garlic is complex, it is thought that organosulfur compounds and their by-products are the “active” components of garlic, responsible for its potential effects on human health and wellness.
Allicin is produced through a reaction of alliin (the main sulfur compound in whole garlic cloves) with alliinase (an enzyme naturally present in garlic) when fresh garlic cloves are crushed or macerated. Though allicin showed promise as one of the bioactive components of garlic in in vitro laboratory studies, research suggests that it cannot be absorbed intact and cannot be produced within the human body from whole or powdered garlic, as alliinase is destroyed in the acidic environment of the stomach. Ajoene, however, a lipid-soluble metabolite of allicin, shows much greater stability and comparable activity against potentially harmful microorganisms. Ajoene also shows promise in the other supportive roles originally ascribed to allicin. Ajoene and the garlic sulfide components of this product may help support the body’s healthy immune system and cellular defenses, including natural antioxidant responses. These compounds may help support the protective activity of glutathione within cells. They may also support normal fat metabolism and circulatory health.
As a dietary supplement, take one softgel per day, or as directed by your healthcare practitioner.Warnings
