Allicin is a compound produced when garlic is crushed or chopped. Available in dietary supplement form, allicin has been found to reduce inflammation and offer antioxidant benefits. Fresh garlic contains an amino acid called alliin. When the clove is crushed or chopped, an enzyme, alliinase, is released.

“Let food be thy medicine, and medicine be thy food.”- Hippocrates

What are the benefits of allicin?

Allicin, one of the sulfur compounds of garlic, possesses antioxidant activity and is shown to cause a variety of actions potentially useful for human health. Allicin exhibits hypolipidemic, antiplatelet, and procirculatory effects. It demonstrates antibacterial, anticancer and chemopreventive activities.

Modern science has recently confirmed many of the beneficial health effects of garlic prescribed to treat a variety of medical conditions.

Garlic is a plant in the onion family that’s grown for its distinctive taste and health benefits. It contains sulfur compounds, which are believed to bring some of the health benefits. Perhaps the most famous of those is known as allicin. However, allicin is an unstable compound that is only briefly present in fresh garlic after it’s been cut or crushed.

Garlic grows in many parts of the world and is a popular ingredient in cooking due to its strong smell and delicious taste.

Throughout ancient history, the main use of garlic was for its health and medicinal properties. Its use was well documented by many major civilizations, including the Egyptians, Babylonians, Greeks, Romans and Chinese.

Scientists now know that most of its health benefits are caused by sulfur compounds formed when a garlic clove is chopped, crushed or chewed. Other compounds that may play a role in garlic’s health benefits include diallyl disulfide and s-allyl cysteine. The sulfur compounds from garlic enter the body from the digestive tract and travel all over the body, where it exerts its potent biological effects.

Garlic is low in calories and rich in vitamin C, vitamin B6 and manganese. It also contains trace amounts of various other nutrients.

Garlic supplements may help prevent and reduce the severity of common illnesses like the flu and common cold. Garlic supplements are known to boost the function of the immune system.

garlic Heart

Cardiovascular diseases like heart attacks and strokes are the world’s biggest killers.
High blood pressure, or hypertension, is one of the most important drivers of these diseases.

Human studies have found garlic supplements to have a significant impact on reducing blood pressure in people with high blood pressure.

Supplement doses must be fairly high to have the desired effects. The amount needed is equivalent to about four cloves of garlic per day.

High doses of garlic appear to possibly improve blood pressure for those with known high blood pressure (hypertension). In some instances, supplements may be as effective as regular medications.

Fresh garlic contains an amino acid called alliin. When the clove is crushed or chopped, an enzyme, alliinase, is released. Alliin and alliinase interact to form allicin, which is considered the major biologically active component of garlic.
