Optimized Garlic
200 vegetarian capsules
Item Catalog Number:
01394

Garlic has been valued for centuries for its multi-faceted benefits.1-17 It has antioxidant action and can boost the level of natural glutathione, an important cellular detoxifier.18-25 The compounds allicin, oligosulfides, A. ursinum and A. sativum found in garlic support healthy platelet function.26-31

Published studies demonstrate garlic’s immune-supporting properties and numerous other health benefits. Garlic is reported to stimulate immunity, including macrophage activity, natural killer cells, and LAK cells. It has also been shown to increase the production of IL-10 and to decrease the production of tumor necrosis factor-alpha (TNF-alpha), IL-1alpha, IL-2, IL-6, and T-cell interferon-gamma (IFN-gamma).32-34 Clinical studies show that as much as 5–10 grams of garlic extract is effective in enhancing human immune responses.32-38

Optimized Garlic capsules contain 10,000 ppm allicin potential, a key health-promoting component of non-aged garlic. In fact, studies have highlighted allicin’s involvement in immune response and oxidative stress.32-34,39

            I take it as a supplement to improve vasculature health. It is the best garlic supplement I have ever tried, especially since I don't burp it up after taking it!

                this is my first purchase of the updated formula. it is too strong. it irritates the stomach. we have taken the previous formula for many years with no problem but this new one is not good. I really need to return the 3 unopened bottles I have.
