Garlic, Allium sativum, is a member of the plant family Liliaceae. It is native to central Asia but is now widely cultivated for both culinary and medicinal use. The pungent tasting flesh of the garlic bulb has made it a staple flavoring ingredient in the kitchens of many cultures. In addition, garlic has been used in traditional medicine for thousands of years, for purposes as diverse as providing strength and productivity among workers (1), fighting the common cold, preventing wound infections, treating dysentery, and combating the plague (1,2). Today garlic is associated with cardiovascular health, detoxification, immune system support, fighting cancer, and with having antioxidant, anti-inflammatory, and antimicrobial properties (1,2).

Research has identified trace minerals, enzymes, and in particular, sulfur-containing compounds within garlic, that are involved in its various health benefits (3,4,5). The primary sulfur compound present in fresh garlic has been named alliin (S-alkylcysteine sulfoxide). Alliin is odorless when undisturbed within an intact garlic clove. But when the clove is chopped or crushed, the alliin is exposed to allinase enzymes and rapidly breaks down to volatile sulfur compounds called thiosulfinates, which release the characteristic aroma and flavor of garlic. The most abundant thiosulfinate produced is allicin, and it is the biological activity of this compound that is responsible for many of garlic’s beneficial properties (4).

Allicin has shown significant antimicrobial capabilities against a wide spectrum of bacteria, as well as antifungal, and antiparasitic effects. E. coli, Staph. aureus, Helicobacter pylori (causing gastric ulcers), and Candida albicans (causing yeast infections) are a few among the many microbes that have shown sensitivity to allicin (6,7). It is promising that drug resistant bacteria such as those causing MDR (multi drug resistant) tuberculosis, do not seem to develop resistance to allicin (8). In general, garlic is believed to boost the immune system and may even enhance the effectiveness of some prescription antibiotics (9).

The sulfur compounds and flavonoids found in garlic have antioxidant capabilities that can scavenge toxins such as lead (10) and potentially harmful free radicals, and thereby help the body protect itself from cancers and genetic damage (11,12,13,14).

It is widely accepted that garlic contributes to improving cardiovascular health (15). There are a number of mechanisms by which this benefit may occur. Garlic can assist the body in decreasing platelet aggregation (16), inhibiting enzymes involved in lipid synthesis, suppressing oxidation of LDL (good cholesterol), and by affecting cytokines that regulate inflammation (17,18,19). In addition, production of hydrogen sulfide during the digestion of garlic is believed to signal the vascular smooth muscle of blood vessels to relax, resulting in dilation and a lowering of blood pressure (20).

BioPure garlic is certified organic and sustainably grown on high quality soils in northern Canada. It is proprietarily processed to retain a high content of richly bioavailable allicin. BioPure is offering vegetarian capsules of 700 mg which carry 5.4 mg of allicin each.
