Description: Garlic Factors is guaranteed to deliver the highest level of allicin of any garlic product using the recently developed USP dissolution method 724A. This new method better simulates what happens in the human digestive tract. Garlic Factors is able to achieve this goal via three important mechanisms: 1) high alliin content garlic 2) high activity of allinase - the enzyme that converts alliin to allicin; and 3) better manufacturing processes insuring proper dissolution and disintegration of the enteric-coated tablet thereby liberating the maximum amount of allicin.

In addition to allicin, Garlic Factors provides the highest level of other important sulfur compounds from garlic including the gamma-glutamylcysteines that are showing benefit as antioxidants and detoxification aids. Natural Factors garlic is grown in the high mountain valleys of California and Oregon and is strictly controlled from seed to finished product. It is 100% pure and potent garlic that is certified for alliin, the main ingredient in garlic; allicin, the healing and strengthening compound formed by alliin and allinase; sulfur, a known antibiotic and antifungal.

Garlic has been used as a food and medicine since ancient times. Recently garlic has undergone much scientific scrutiny to assess its medicinal value. Over 250 studies show that garlic supports the cardiovascular system. Studies have shown that garlic can lower cholesterol and blood pressure and reduce blood clotting time. (Although a recent study in JAMA showed that garlic had no cholestering-lowering effects, it was revealed that an inferior garlic oil supplement was used, mistakenly assumed to be chemically similar to higher potency forms of garlic.)

Garlic has antimicrobial, antiviral and antifungal activity and may work against some intestinal parasites. Regular use of garlic might prove protective against colds and flu. Although it only has 1% of the strength of penicillin, garlic can play a supportive role against some bacterial infections. Garlic inhibits Candida albicans and has been very helpful against recurring yeast infections. The antimicrobial effect is primarily due to the allicin content.

Garlic stimulates immunity and is considered an anticancer agent.
