In Britain, at the first sign of a cold , we take Allimax, the best garlic supplement in the world.
Allimax, the world's best garlic supplement is tough on colds. Only the stabilized allicin found in Allimax fights infection and boosts your immune system.
Allicin is the major biologically active component of garlic and is the key ingredient responsible for the broad-spectrum of anti-bacterial activity in garlic. Allicin is not found in fresh garlic. Fresh garlic contains an enzyme called “allinase” and “alliin”, which are contained in different parts of garlic.
Garlic is remarkable for the number of compounds it contains, including seventeen amino acids, at least 33 sulphur compounds, eight minerals (germanium, calcium, copper, iron, potassium, magnesium, selenium and zinc) and the vitamins A, B and C. It also comprises fibre and water but not a single trace of allicin, the wonder compound.
In an undamaged clove, alliin and allinase remain completely separate, but once its structure is ruptured – typically by cutting – the two substances come into contact and form allicin. This is the garlic's defence mechanism against an attack from the soil-borne organisms. The exceptional capacity of allicin to kill unwanted organisms is unique in a herbal compound. This transformation is extremely rapid, taking mere seconds. Even more intriguing is the instability of allicin. It remains active only for a short period before degrading.
A quite bewildering array of garlic supplements are on offer when visiting a health-food shop or drug store, all apparently offering you allicin. However, in a review of garlic supplement brands carried out in March 2003, the independent consumer body ConsumerLabs.com
found that the strength of these products, judged on each product’s ability to generate allicin in a laboratory test, varies by as much as 1500 percent. ConsumerLabs.com found that almost a quarter of non-aged products (aged garlic never produces any allicin) yielded less allicin than was generally considered therapeutic and then only in a laboratory and not in your body, which is an altogether different setting.
Eating raw garlic, which itself varies quite widely in its relative yield of allicin, is hardly an option, given the social consequences and more technically, the deactivating effect of stomach acid on the allinase. In any case scientists have found that the amount of allicin released from different garlics around the world can vary by as much as 10 times, and given that the best yield is about a 4% allicin yield, you’d have to munch an awful lot of garlic!
Or garlic oil?
Results of independent analysis from the Camden Food and Drink Research Association and the prestigious Warren Springs Laboratory show that garlic oil does not provide allicin. This is because it is destroyed by the boiling process used in the oil’s manufacture. However, it is fair to say that some oil-based products do contain
potentially beneficial sulphur compounds due to high levels of concentration and they may help various circulatory disorders.
I purchased Allimax and I've been using it for months. I absolutely LOVE it! I haven't had a sinus infection all winter thanks to Allimax, plus my colds don't last long at all. Thanks so much for making my life a little healthier. ~ Kelli
Before I tried Allimax, I suffered from terrible allergies. I used over the counter medications but they only worked for a few days. A friend suggested Allimax and over the course of 10 days my allergies became non-existent.~ Zachary
An acquaintance of mine told me she had a bronchial infection for 2 years. Prescription drugs helped but then it came right back. I suggested she take Allimax. After 2 weeks she told me her infection was totally cleared up thanks to Allimax.~BB
