What is Allicin?
When fresh garlic is cut or crushed, a sulphur compound, alliin (alli-een) combines with an enzyme, allinase and a chemical reaction starts. The first compound that is formed is allicin. Unfortunately allicin generated from fresh garlic is very unstable and quickly changes into a series of other sulphur containing compounds, known as thiosulphinates. Allicin is the one compound that is always described as the 'mother' substance and responsible in total or in part for many of the properties attributable to garlic!
How is Allicinmax made?
It is made in the same way that allicin from fresh garlic is formed but a special flood reaction system using only water is able to produce large quantities of stable 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 componentand deliver it directly to where your body needs it.
