Aged garlic

Product code: P01071

The proprietary aging process produces an odorless preparation. The active compound found in unaged garlic is called allicin; this is a pungent unstable organosulphur compound. By aging the garlic, these unstable organosulphur compounds can be converted into milder water-soluble sulphur containing compounds such as S-allylcysteine (SAC) and S-allyl mercaptocysteine (SMAC). These compounds are thought to be paricularly bioavialable. This is a 10:1 extract.

There are no authorised health claims relating to aged garlic in Europe. Garlic is often combined with heart-healthy claims backed ingredients such as magnesium and thiamin, or ingredients for the immune system such as vitamin C and zinc, in order for health claims to be made about the product.
