Is All Garlic Created Equal? When it comes to garlic
supplements, the answer is a resounding NO!
Research shows that the key active medicinal constituent in
garlic is a powerful plant chemical called allicin. Why is allicin
so important, well take a look at the list of properties
attributable to allicin for improving the health of the human
Not a single garlic supplement available today, except for
Allimax®, contains enough allicin to be effective.
But why? Garlic oil and powder supplements are produced by
distilling fresh garlic, and then diluting it with other
substances. This process destroys the majority of allicin in
garlic. Therefore, the supplements rely on the human stomach
to convert some of the remaining garlic components into allicin.
Although a few garlic powder supplements are able to generate some
allicin within the stomach, the amount converted, if any is
converted at all, is dependent upon optimal stomach conditions. The
process not only is unreliable, it can take several hours, and it
also can lead to unwanted garlic odor.
Allimax® allicin is made from fresh, raw garlic. Heads of garlic
are specifically selected to ensure that they contain significant
enzyme activity (allinase enzyme). Garlic heads are split into
cloves, which are left unpeeled and then subjected to crushing,
filtration and a temperature controlled extraction process designed
to produce pure liquid allicin dissolved in water. No chemical
solvents are used. The allicin amino acid in fresh garlic is
subjected to complete conversion by the allinase enzyme and to
ensure a large volume of active allicin is harvested. The volume of
allicin produced is directly related to the enzymatic activity.
Each box contains 30 capsules 180 mg each of Allisure® AC-23
stabilized allicin powder in a 100% vegetarian capsule
Allimax doesn't need to wait to be converted into allicin,
because each capsule of Allimax contains an abundance of allicin
powder -- 180 milligrams. The box contains 3 sheets each with 10
blister wrapped capsules. The capsule shell is made of cellulose
and is suitable for Vegans and vegetarians. Allimax is free from
artificial preservatives and flavors, salt and gluten. Each capsule
of Allimax is equivalent to 20 to 30 cloves of fresh, crushed
garlic without the odor!
*Note: There is no real allicin in these products. The allicin
content listed is based on the product's "potential" to create
allicin. This is a purely theoretical yield of allicin.
