Garlic Power™ is a standardized extract of garlic (Allium sativum). This concentrated source provides a high yield of the sulfur-containing bioactive compounds allicin and alliin. Research suggests that garlic supports immune function, antioxidant activity, and the cardiovascular system. Garlic may also support healthy blood pressure and cholesterol levels already within the normal range.*
Garlic is a pungent herb and one of nature’s natural anti-biotics. Due to the powerful sulfur containing nutrients and immune stimulators within garlic it is classified as a superfood herb. Consumption of garlic daily may be one of the best defenses against infection and inflammatory based diseases.
Garlic has been used by many cultures throughout the history of mankind as a medicinal tool. The Sumerians and other groups around the Mediterranean region had a great reverence for its ability to fight infection. An Egyptian writing dating back to 1500 BC discusses the use of garlic for over 22 common health challenges. These same Egyptians fed a heavy garlic diet to their slaves to increase their strength as they built the great pyramids (1).
Organosulfur Compounds and Anti-Oxidant Activity
Garlic is one of nature’s most powerful immune boosting secrets. Garlic contains over 100 biologically active components including alliin, allicin, alliinase and unique sulfur compounds.
When garlic is crushed or chewed it forces the allin and allinase enzyme together and causes a chemical reaction to produce allicin. Allicin along with sulfur based compounds act as powerful antibiotic, anti-viral, and anti-fungal agents that have an incredible immune stimulating effect (2). Additionally, garlic is also used to lower blood pressure, cholesterol and help prevent/reverse cancer (3, 4).
Anti-Microbial and Anti-Carcinogenic Activity
Researchers have found garlic to be more powerful at destroying pathogenic bacteria than the popular anti-biotics penicillin and tetracycline. It is also very effective against viruses and yeasts like Candida.
Allicin in its pure form was found to exhibit i) antibacterial activity against a wide range of Gram-negative and Gram-positive bacteria, including multidrug-resistant enterotoxicogenic strains of Escherichia coli; ii) antifungal activity, particularly against Candida albicans; iii) antiparasitic activity, including some major human intestinal protozoan parasites such as Entamoeba histolytica and Giardia lamblia; and iv) antiviral activity (14).
Garlic is also very potent at destroying tumor cells in the stomach, colon, breast and prostate among other regions (5). The sulfur compounds are also effective at detoxifying heavy metals such as mercury, lead, & aluminum (6).
Numerous studies suggest that garlic has a positive effect on plasma lipids, normal fibrinolytic and platelet activity, and the maintenance of blood pressure and blood glucose already within the normal range (7).
A meta-analysis of 26 studies showed that garlic supported total cholesterol and triglyceride metabolism with a significance of p = 0.001 and p < 0.001 respectively (8). Studies suggest that garlic may play a cardioprotective role in maintaining normal levels of oxidized low-density lipoprotein (LDL), nitric oxide production, healthy cytokine balance, and normal endothelial function as well (9, 10).
Garlic-derived organosulfur compounds are converted by erythrocytes into hydrogen sulfide, which in turn supports vasodilation, vascular smooth muscle relaxation, and overall cardiovascular health (11). Garlic supplementation had a significant impact on cardiovascular health parameters in select subjects during a 12-week, randomized, single-blind placebo-controlled study (12).
In the mid-1900s, Louis Pasteur noted garlic’s ability to support immune function, and it is known to have been used for immune support during World War I (11). Ongoing research reveals a broad range of immune-supportive properties associated with garlic, especially its allicin component (13).
Allicin appears to react with the thiol groups of a variety of enzymes (including alcohol dehydrogenase, thioredoxin reductase, and RNA polymerase), which, in turn, supports normal microbial balance in the body (14).
A double-blind placebo controlled study of 146 volunteers suggests that stabilized allicin compound is significantly effective in supporting and maintaining healthy immune function (15).
Modern-day research appears to confirm the health-promoting properties of garlic that ancient Egyptians, Greeks, Chinese, and Indian cultures embraced for so long.
