Garlic has the potential to enhance numerous aspects of immune function, increase antioxidant support and aid in cardiovascular health. This supplement is enterically coated to allow maximum absorption in the lower gut while also preventing garlic taste.
Garlic is rich in a wide spectrum of organic sulfur compounds that are thought to be responsible for its high nutritional value. The most important garlic sulfur compound appears to be allicin. Allicin is formed from the precursor alliin by the enzymatic action of allinase. Garlitrin is made using a patented Swiss process that prevents alliinase from interacting with alliin until the enteric-coated tablet is well inside the small intestine. This special Swiss process also delivers garlic's benefits with completely garlic-free breath.
Allicin is naturally found in fresh garlic in small amounts, but enzymes in the garlic produce larger amounts once the garlic is cut or crushed and exposed to water, such as in the gut. Allicin and the other organosulfur compounds of garlic have numerous nutritional functions in the body. For example, a number of clinical studies show that garlic supplements help maintain the normal metabolism of blood cholesterol and triglycerides. Garlic is also believed to support normal immune function.
