Organic Garlic – AllicinMax™ & Allimed®
What is Allicin?
When fresh garlic is cut or crushed, a sulphur compound, allicin combines with an enzyme, allinase and a chemical reaction starts. The first compound that is formed is allicin. Allicin generated from fresh garlic is unstable and changes into a series of other sulphur compounds, known as thiosulphinates. Allicin is the described as the ‘mother’ substance of garlic, which is responsible for the majority of its remarkable properties. Our patented process is the first to provide biologically active stabilised allicin.
How is AllicinMax™ Made?
In the manufacturing process, a special flood reaction system using only water is able to produce large quantities of stablised allicin. The liquid is then carefully dried, under controlled conditions, to maintain its potency. This sophisticated refinement process has for the first time allowed us to capture garlic’s active component and deliver it directly to where your body needs it.
How Does AllicinMax™ Differ from Garlic Supplements?
Garlic supplements do not contain any allicin at all. They rely on your body being able to generate small quantities of allicin once you have swallowed the tablet or capsule. Garlic oil supplements are produced by distilling fresh garlic. The oil that is produced is then diluted and placed into a capsule. This process destroys most, if not all of the available allicin. A few garlic powder supplements can generate some allicin during the digestive process. This depends, however, on the prevailing stomach conditions and may take several hours. AllicinMax doesn’t need to be converted since it actually contains stabilised allicin. When AllicinMax is taken, it is not destroyed and is easily absorbed into the blood stream. The allicin in AllicinMax likes the acid environment of your stomach, unlike other supplements that can be inactivated by acidic conditions.
How Much AllicinMax™ do I need?
Just one capsule of AllicinMax taken each day at mealtimes will provide enough allicin for your general health and well-being. Each capsule contains 180mg of stabilised allicin powder and 12 capsules or more can be taken per day on a regular basis. The ingredients of AllicinMax are non-GM maltodextrin, gum acacia and stabilised allicin. This allicin is very biologically active.
AllicinMax is not recommended for children under 3 years of age because they have not yet fully developed their immune system. For children between the age of 3 and 7 years, half the adult dose is suggested. For children over 7 years old the full adult dose can be taken.
