The Many Health Benefits of Allicin
Allicin is an organic compound found exclusively in freshly crushed garlic. In fact, it is now thought that allicin may be the component which has made garlic a fixture in natural healing practices across many of the world’s most ancient cultures. Allicin has been studied extensively as of late due to its potential antimicrobial properties. One particular study seems to indicate that allicin in its purified form is capable of supporting antibacterial activity against Gram-negative and Gram-positive bacteria, as well as antifungal activity against Candida albicans. Allicin is also thought to support antiviral and antiparasitic activity.1
Perhaps the most important nutritional features of Allicin are its antioxidant properties. Allicin helps to the body to resist the presence of free radicals and the oxidative stress caused by these free radicals. It also supports the production of the body’s most important antioxidant compounds, glutathione. Increased antioxidant activity in the body is especially beneficial to the cardiovascular system because oxidative stress hampers blood flow and causes other heart health complications.2
